    Even though the ending is inescapable (and therefore predictable), that does little to diminish its effectiveness.

    I knew perfectly well, after a while, what Sinister was going to scare me with. But I got scared anyway.

    And then there is Vincent D'Onofrio, as a university professor of the occult and mythological, who opens up a line of possibility that eventually saves the ending from being a red herring. Yes, the ending is horrifying, but I don't believe in that stuff. I'm pretty sure I don't.

    Occasionally stupid (stretching even fright-flick conventions) but scary nonetheless, the picture should please horror fans.

    Despite the hype, this horror story can't shake its run-of-the-mill storytelling.
