Watch: First Spooky Trailer for Scott Derrickson's 'Sinister' Arrives
"He consumes the souls of human children." Meet Mr. Boogie. Summit has unveiled the first trailer late tonight via Bloody-Disgusting for Scott Derrickson's Sinister, a highly-buzzed about horror film that won over critics and fans at a surprise SXSW screening earlier this year (Jeremy's review here). The horror flick stars Ethan Hawke as a true-crime novelist who moves into a new house that seems to have a mysterious connection to a horrific family murder. It was co-written by AICN's Massawyrm, aka C. Robert Cargill, and is kind of a found footage mix that Jeremy calls a "welcomed discomfort" in the horror genre. View below!
Watch the first official trailer for Scott Derrickson's Sinister, in high def from Bloody-Disgusting:
Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Day the Earth Stood Still) directs Sinister which he also wrote along with newcomer C. Robert Cargill. Ethan Hawke stars as a struggling crime novelist whose desire for a new story leads him to the site of a horrific family murder. However, his investigation threatens to put his family in harms way as something still resides in the house that may be the key to learning the truth about the past murders. The cast includes Vincent D'Onofrio, Clare Foley, James Ransone and Fred Dalton Thompson. Summit currently has Sinister scheduled to arrive in theaters October 12th this fall. Curious?
