YMMV: Sinister

  • Fridge Horror: Bughuul lives in images and kills the people who see them. How many people saw this movie?
    • Bughuul & the kids he possesses live in videos of the families being murdered. Depending on how that works, it's possible that the families get murdered all over again every time someone watches the movies.
    • The tapes that wind up in Ellison's attic both times. If Bughuul's servants still exist on the physical plane, this means they're likely the ones actually physically leaving them. While the supernatural factor is scary enough, the idea that there are people physically breaking into your house is...unsettling.
    • More Fridge Tragedy than anything, but if Ellison had thought to delete the files before moving back into his old house, he likely wouldn't have been killed.
  • Narm: The whole thing with Bughuul's children making a shush gesture after EVERY FRICKIN' REEL on the "extended cut endings" gets old and cheesy after the first time, especially with the little Kubrick Stare they all give.
    • Bughuul looks a bit like either a member of Slipknot or the Ultimate Crack Smoking Warlock.
    • The ghost kids frolicking around Ellison gets a lot less scary with each kid.
    • The Nightmare Fuel Coloring Book identifies Bughuul as Mr. Boogie.
    • The trailer for the sequel has one of the main (non-evil) boys holding and looking into a film camera while screaming in terror. Out of context, it just looks hilarious.
  • Hell Is That Noise: All the songs used during the Super 8 reel sequences. Don't listen to this if you're alone and/or in the dark...
  • Epileptic Trees: Before this movie came out (and before this movie was really explained)) some people were under the impression it was a Slender Man ripoff.
  • The Woobie: All the families
