I can’t recall the last time I was legitimately terrified in a movie theatre. Sure, I’ve been shaken up by the occasional jump scare. But the sense that I’m looking at some seriously messed up shit that will have me thinking twice about that bump in the night? Not since I first saw The Exorcist upon its ’98 rerelease.
So it’s with great joy that I reveal the following: this trailer is pretty goddamn scary. Horror’s effect is subjective of course, but I’d like to suggest doing as I did. Turn the lights down, crank the volume, and let this short glimpse of Sinister work its indelibly creepy magic.
