A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
True-crime writer Ellison Oswalt moves himself and his family into a house where a horrific crime took place earlier, but his family doesn't know. He begins researching the crime so that he can write a new book about it to help his flailing career. He uses some "snuff" film footage he finds in the house to help him in his research, but he soon finds more than he bargained for. There is a figure in each of the films but who or what is it? As a result, his family start to suffer (as does he) and things take a turn for the worst. Will they survive?Written by

The only one to survive any of Bughuul's super 8 snuff film reel murders in Sinister, was the Miller family's pet chihuahua from the "Sleepytime '98" reel. The dog seemingly survived, unlike its unfortunate owners, and the dog wasn't tied down with duct tape either the way the Miller family was. See more »
(at around 1h 40 mins) When Ashley has the Bughuul's super-8 camera in her hands, it is a Pro8mm camera. Pro8mm's cameras are hybrid cameras, usually Beaulieu versions, from the 1990's onward. It is stated that the Bughuul has been using the same camera since 1966, but the kind of camera Ashley is holding was designed in the 21st century so this wouldn't be possible. See more »
This movie is a must watch for all the horror fanatics. I really did not expect it to be so good and after watching it am totally impressed. The the sound effects are amazing. The movie is so unconventional and different than most horror movies in a way that it makes you wonder if its a true story. Best part is that it makes you think and there are so many scenes wherein you just want to pause the movie because you just cant handle the intense suspense. Its a must watch and you will not regret for even a single moment, all the more a true horror movie fan would get peace of mind for a good deal of time before they would want to watch another spin chilling horror movie. A fantastic horror movie after a long time!!! I hope a sequel comes out soon to reveal the secrets of the origin of the murderer!
