A Film by Scott Derrikson
Discussion with the director after the film.
Director Scott Derrickson is an alum of Biola University and has worked in the horror genre most of his career. He is currently in production directing Marvel’s Doctor Strange (2016). His mission is to tell stories about the larger mysteries of life including the inexplicable irrationality of true evil. “If we're not compelled to gain a deeper understanding of good and evil, how can we make the world a better place? How can we find ourselves at the end of our lives and know that our lives were significant?” Sinister is about a modern true-crime writer who finds a cache of 8mm home movies in the attic of his new home that suggest the murder he is currently researching for his new book is the work of a serial killer whose career dates back to the 1960s.
This film is rated R.
