'Sinister' Getting Sneak Screening in Austin

Hollywood Reporter, 3.9.12

SXSW: Ethan Hawke Horror Film 'Sinister' Getting Sneak Screening in Austin

The creeper from "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" writer-director Scott Derrickson will get a late-night slot Saturday.

Mystery solved: Scott Derrickson and Jason Blum's found-footage flick Sinister will turn up in the "super secret screening" slot at 11:45 p.m. Saturday at the Alamo Lamar B. Although the Summit creeper doesn't hit theaters until October, the studio and filmmakers clearly are looking to generate some buzz out of Austin for a film that many genre fans are greatly anticipating.

Derrickson, who directed and co-wrote The Exorcism of Emily Rose, directed Sinister and co-wrote it with C. Robert Cargill. Blum and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, who were behind last year's super-successful FilmDistrict release Insidious, produced Sinister, which shot in the fall.

Ethan Hawke and Vincent D'Onofrio star in the story of a crime novelist looking into the murders of a family that took place in his new home only to discover that the investigation puts his own family in jeopardy. As part of the SXSW fest's strong Midnighters program, Sinister should draw an eager crowd Saturday.

Derrickson hasn't been behind the camera since he directed The Day the Earth Stood Still for Fox in 2008. Blum most recently produced Paranormal Activity 3, which grossed $206 million worldwide last year. Kavanaugh-Jones also produced The Babymakers, which is playing in the Narrative Spotlight section of the 2012 SXSW Film Festival this week.

Isn't this the one Vincent said he'd done his bit by 'Skype'? I was thinking it was going to be another 'blink and you'll miss him' thing, so claiming it 'Stars' Vincent D'Onofrio may be a bit of an 'overstatement....(?) It will be interesting to learn exactly how much he IS in it ;0)

Vincent and Ethan Hawke seem to like working together, whether by Skype or not!
