Sinister Details


A struggling true-crime novelist stumbles into a grim supernatural mystery that threatens the lives of his entire family in this nightmarish horror yarn from director [[Performer~P277846~Scott Derrickson~scottderrickson]] ([[Feature~V316830~The Exorcism of Emily Rose~theexorcismofemilyrose]], [[Feature~V414716~The Day the Earth Stood Still~thedaytheearthstoodstill]]). Ellison ([[Performer~P31094~Ethan Hawke~ethanhawke]]) is seeking inspiration for his latest book when he moves his wife and children into a home where an entire family perished under gruesome circumstances. Terror soon hits closer to home, however, when the writer discovers a box of old family movies in the attic of his new house, and watches in horror as images of various families being murdered flicker before his eyes. Now the deeper Ellison investigates the disturbing case, the more he begins to fear he has stirred an ancient evil that won't rest until it has claimed his entire family. [[Performer~P16486~Vincent D'Onofrio~vincentdonofrio]] and [[Performer~P321609~James Ransone~jamesransone]] co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
