In the new horror movie Sinister, Ethan Hawke plays a true crime writer who moves his family into a house that was the site of a notably grisly incident and finds some extremely strange home movies in the attic.

Do things go well for our scribe hero as he investigates what happened at his new abode in the hopes of penning a bestseller? I don’t think it will overly anger the Spoiler Gods to hint that they very much do not.

Sinister, which also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, British actress Juliet Rylance, and onetime presidential hopeful Fred Thompson opens Oct. 5 — although horror fans can petition to have their town host an advance screening at the film’s official website. In the meantime, you can exclusively check out a new poster for the film, which was created by SA Studios, above and, in a larger format, below.
