The first glimpse of Mr. Boogie (underwater in a snuff film) was truly terrifying, but then, as time goes by, the mystery is replaced with the standard supernatural demon stuff and I started to get bored. Definite kudos for a creepy idea and the awesome snuff films, but overall SINISTER is a cool idea that became a missed opportunity thanks to a inconsistent script, a weak finale, unneeded jump scenes, Hawke's complete disregard for his family's safety and a killer that started out cool but in the end turned out to be a dork.
Not a bad film, but I personally think the entire thing would have been creepier if Mr. Boogie was a real person and not just another demon-black-metal-wrestler-looking thing. Worth a watch, but nothing to get excited about. Hell, there's not even any nudity or blood!
