I do not recommend Sinister to the incredible sensitive, to the sensate or children, who are not yet scarred up enough to be de-sensitized to such mental anguish.
Sinister is the tale of a true-crime writer who is more concerned with solving crimes than being famous or making money, even though his work has been on the New York best sellers list.
Ellison Oswalt, played by Ethan Hawke, has moved his family into a house where four young people have hung on a tree in the backyard until their untimely demise.
His wife Tracy, played by Juliet Rylance, quarreled with Ellison on a couple of occasions as to whether or not this new abode was once the scene of a crime.
He plays with words to evade the issue.
This is a bad idea, as both of their children are in spiritual communication with some of these victims and it is affecting their behaviors.
It's a good movie. It was also an overwhelming movie for this sensate.
Deputy: If you sleep in this house, it's just going to do terrible things to your head.
Ellison: I found him outside. It's way worse than it was.
Ellison: I thought something was in the house.
Ellison: I'd rather cut my hands off than to write for fame or money.
Ellison: I'm not really a squirrel guy.
Ellison: So, you don't believe in that other-worldly stuff, right?
Ellison: Thank you very much Deputy So And So.
Professor Jonas: What kind of book are you writing, exactly?
Tracy: And you let our little girl play back there?
Tracy: Your father writes about terrible, terrible things.
Tracy: Your kids are your legacy.
