I picked up "Sinister" a month ago and, before watching it, stumbled across some reviews of your edit. With the reviews all pointing to your edit as the much better version, I decided to watch your take on the material.

What I found was a horror masterpiece. I don't remember seeing a horror film as oppressive as this one in years and your edit did it without playing cheap tricks. Despite the shortened runtime, it felt like everything had a measured and logical pace. The success of this edit makes me think there must have been significant padding with the theatrical. The image and sound were also flawless and helped establish the foreboding mood.

I'm looking forward to also watching your "The Vanishing" edit. I also hope you do some other horror films in the future, as this was fantastic.

Not much to say about this. The editing was flawless, I didn't notice a single cut that was made, even after reading the cutlist. This cut clears some of the modern horror cliches out of the film and makes for a less predictable and more ambiguous ending.

If you liked the original, check this out. If you didn't like the original for it's 'cliched' aspects, maybe give this edit a shot.

Sinister has a great premise, a writer finding a box of haunted super 8 films is certainly interesting but the execution didn't completely land due to some Clichés scenes and overdone humor but this edit fixes these problems, for example, removing the son's sleepwalking fakeout and making the Deputy a more competent character. There were no noticeable cuts or audio issues for me so no complaints here. Overall this is a great edit that fixes a lot of the movie's faults and makes it more enjoyable.

I really liked the original (especially for the soundtrack), but agree that the numerous clichées and red herrings somewhat watered it down.
Luckily, Agent Sam Stanley has done a great job at removing most of those. A perfect example of "less is more"...

The editing also gives it a new narrative, which is very enjoyable.
So whether you liked or disliked the original, definintely give this version a try!
