I’m one of the folks that has been waiting for Scott Derrickson’s Sinister to hit home video and today we have scored all the details. However, I’ve been hearing mixed things about this one from the community, but still, I’ll give it a rental and who knows, maybe this one is awesome?
From the Press Release:
“From the producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious, comes the gripping new horror film, Sinister, starring Ethan Hawke (Daybreakers), arriving on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and UV), DVD (plus Digital Copy and UV), Digital Download, Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View February 19 from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company.

Ten years ago, true crime writer Ellison Oswald (Hawke) made his reputation with a best-selling account of a notorious murder. Now, desperate to replicate the success of his first book, he moves his family into a home where the previous occupants were brutally executed and a child disappeared, hoping to find inspiration in the crime scene.
