Sinister - Horror Channel - 9pm

In our pick for this evening, a crime writer (Ethan Hawke) moves his family into a house where a horrific crime took place previously in the hopes of writing a book about it.

However, upon discovering in the attic a stack of Super 8 home movies depicting grisly murders, he and his family are put in danger.

Without spoiling too much, this twisty and twisted horror puts a modern, unique spin on the classic haunted house story.

While Hawke brings added gravitas to the lead character, what really sticks with viewers is the disturbing footage of the home movies themselves - which were shot on actual Super 8 cameras and film stock for added authenticity.
