Sinister Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Review


I remember my first viewing of Sinister that I was completely creeper out by it, and mostly that was helped by the sound design that helped build that level of dread and nightmarish quality. The score of the movie is very discordant and will put you on edge. It sounds like something composed in the very bowels of hell itself, and it was composed by Christopher Young, who would the best idea of what that would sound like as he also was responsible for the Hellraiser soundtracks.


I think the most unsettling bits is when the main protagonist is watching the different reels, and just the music accompaniment to the dreadful acts you see unfold is enough to put you on the edge of your seat and make you bite your palm in terror. I'm sure we will review the movie itself but this is a movie that had so much potential and a lot of mythology behind it. Then it got a sequel which it really did not need and that was rather disappointing to say the least.


Definitely check this out if you haven't done so yet, but just make sure you do it with the lights on because it will definitely make you have night terrors.
