My Sinister Birthday

Early reviews suggest that Scott Derrickson’s new movie Sinister, starring Ethan Hawke, is going to ruin moviegoers’ peace of mind across the country over the next several weeks.

Today, the director himself admitted as much, when he responded to me on Twitter like this…

Yikes.

Maybe I should save the birthday cake for after the movie.

Tune in to this blog this weekend for my review.

(Full disclosure: Derrickson’s a friend, so I’ll have to write a review that acknowledges that.)

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
