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.)
