“Sinister”

This 2012 British-American supernatural horror film follows a true crime writer named Ellison Oswalt who moves into a new home with his wife and their two kids, Ashley and Trevor.

The family discovers that their new home was the previous site of the murder of a family who were all hung from a tree in the backyard.

Intending to use the murder as a plot for a new book, Ellison starts doing research, which eventually opens up a whole chain of horrifying events the family cannot escape.

This crime thriller follows two detectives as they investigate a set of brutal murders through recording devices found at the crime scene, and two survivors.

The murders are shown through clips as the detectives recover video taken by the victims before and during the crime, revealing that there was a group of people heading to Vegas when their bus flips near an abandoned set of buildings.

The group, stuck alone at night, fights to survive while being picked off by an unidentified murderer.

As the detectives start to uncover more and more, they begin to question some of the victims and struggle to find out who really committed the crime.

With his mother sick and without money for treatment, Calum devises a plan in order to get what she needs.

He substitutes as a bus driver on his mother’s normal route and takes the kids as ransom.

While a negotiator works to help get Calum what he wants and get the children to safety, the police start digging up more of Calum’s elaborate plan, eventually uncovering a twist no one ever saw coming.

“Kristy”
