Red-band 'Sinister' trailer promises excellent disturbances

I've been hearing really, really good (read: messed up, scary) things about Sinister enough that I cannot wait to see it. Starring Ethan Hawke and directed by Scott Derrickson (who wrote The Exorcism of Emily Rose), Sinister follows true-crime novelist Ellison (Hawke) as he researches the story behind a home movies found in his new home, which had previously belonged to a family who was murdered. Based on the trailer, Ellison may have stumbled onto a pagan demon who lives within images - such as in found-footage movies - and inhabits children by entering through them. Sinister debuted at South By Southwest last March to largely positive reviews, and will open wide on Oct. 5.

Check out the new red-band trailer and prepare to feel a little creeped out afterwards.
