Trivia

The role of Butler was always written with Joel McHale in mind, however, Butler was "the worst character in the script", according to the director and writer. After struggling to improve the role, he then imagined what he thought McHale would be like if he had gone to the Army instead of college, and worked in law enforcement instead of entertainment. After that, writing became easier and the character grew. See more »

Goofs

The movie takes place in 2013 in New York (mostly the Bronx). In one scene Mendoza is smoking a cigarette in the FDNY Bar. New York passed a clean air act that eliminated smoking in all bars in 2003. While a few establishments may turn a blind eye - it is highly unlikely a bar that caters to police and fire fighters would. See more »

If you enjoyed Sinister, you will enjoy this creepy joy ride
2 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed Scott Derrickson's 'Sinister' and he followed it up with a very good horror flick here.

It keeps you interested and on the edge of your seat the whole time. Not to many slow parts and there are some pretty creepy and terrifying moments. The tone and the dark hallways and dark basements and the creepy noises and the sudden jumps and scares will make you jump a few times yourself. I looked away a few times just because, you'll see.

A pretty decent story involving soldiers in Iraq and what happens to them there and then what proceeds and how Eric Bana's character gets involved while responding to a domestic disturbance call involving one of those soldiers, and it takes off from there.

Eric Bana is pretty bad-ass here, as is Joel McHale. They are tough cops from the Bronx who see some pretty insane stuff over the course of a few shifts. Olivia Munn is a babe and plays a great wife who cares and does great with little screen time.

It's a supernatural/demon/serial killer flick all rolled into one.

If you enjoy horror flicks like I do, and the supernatural and demon stuff, def check this out. Not much gore, just very dark and creepy with it's share of make you jump moments.

Not many flaws if any. Check it out!
