Is the Movie Sinister based on a true story?

September 5, 2012

Coming out in fall of 2012 from the producers of the movies Insidious and Paranormal Activity, is a chilling supernatural movie based upon a true crime writer who discovers a set of home movies which suddenly cause an unfortunate series of supernatural demonic events. From what he can see Ethan Hawke stars in this film along with a demon that goes by the name of Bagul / Ba – gul / Baghoul. There are no accounts or mention in any religious texts based upon our research that Bagul ever existed.

The movie isn’t based upon real events or story and is fictional, however this doesn’t mean that a demon similar to the one in the movie doesn’t exist. To learn more about how and what the Bagul is depicted after click here.

    Scary i jumped at the end

  • Tim Wood September 27, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    Anything can be real, if you want it be.

  • Bolong Yu September 27, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    Are you referring to mind over matter?

  • Frank Bromley October 3, 2012 at 2:23 am

    well the premise is that he lives in his own image so technicly it can be argued that because of the movie he is real

  • Bolong Yu October 3, 2012 at 2:28 am

    You are freaking me out. I don't think I could watch that movie.

  • Frank Bromley October 3, 2012 at 3:43 am

    see it dosen't matter since he's a living image if you have seen the trailers youve seen the real him (works like the weaping angels anything that holds his image is him)

  • Tim Wood October 4, 2012 at 9:43 am

    Yeah it definitely reminds me of a Slenderman type of made movie

  • Tim Wood October 4, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    what your speaking of Frank is something that many refer to as the Tulpa Effect.

  • Bolong Yu October 5, 2012 at 2:44 am

    but the angels cant move when being watched!

  • Frank Bromley October 5, 2012 at 3:03 am

    there was a book like that i read as a kid aliens come to earth and use there tech to introduce us to our myths and legends and there's this bit were god is on a talk show talking about how he created us so we could create him or something like that

  • Robert Jessee October 5, 2012 at 4:06 am

    It definitely seems like something that climbed straight out of a creepypasta.

  • Zachary Averkamp October 5, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    baghoul is a demon from pagan belief.

  • Zachary Averkamp October 5, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    baghoul is a demon from pagan belief

  • Jacob Cuevas October 5, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    still, this movie is still the Hollywood knock off of slenderman and i am pretty sure that the whole pagan god baghoul was just created by the film makers, i have studded pagan religion a lot, never heard of baghoul.

  • Zachary Averkamp October 6, 2012 at 12:26 am

    well its translated many times by different pagan beliefs and its hard to say the original demon nam so they a;tered it a little

  • Jacob Cuevas October 6, 2012 at 12:59 am

    which pagan culture, Egyptians? Romans? Celts?

  • Zachary Averkamp October 6, 2012 at 4:14 am

    i think german or roman its hard to tell but it has to doo with children

  • Jacob Cuevas October 6, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    its probably German but, i did here about this one roman monster thing which stole children away and ate them but that doesn't sound like baghoul

    I saw the film yesterday and totally enjoyed it. There are some real creepy parts and pleased to say not too many special effects which can totally spoil the film in my opinion.

  • October 8, 2012 at 8:36 am

    So lucky!! is it out already in the UK

  • Amber Cormeny October 13, 2012 at 3:03 am

    Zachary Averkamp That may be true, but this is obviously more of a slender knockoff than a retelling of the actual bagul! You can even tell by the title! One of the best horror movies I've ever watched though :)

  • Zachary Averkamp October 13, 2012 at 7:09 am

    yeah i know i'm just saying he is a pagan deity i know there doing a slenderman like movie

  • Mike Caporiccio October 13, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    movie sucks, not worth the money, a few jumpy parts, story is okay, ending was not the best. I expected to be scared and I was not. If you want to see it, wait for DVD.

  • Tim Wood October 14, 2012 at 6:12 am

    Yeah I was wondering how it was, I guess I'll save my 10 bucks and go watch Frankenweiner instead, thanks for the heads up Mike!

  • Christa Patterson October 14, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    I saw sinister yesterday and I will say it was a good movie and its a true story!

  • Natashia Wright October 15, 2012 at 1:47 am

    Just because the film wasn't based on any true events nor or is fiction, doesn't mean that demons don't exist. Because they do. If you believe there is a God there has to be a Devil, Good & Evil both exist. Like old horror films that some are based on true events , especially The Possession was one of them. So don't say its all necessarily fiction.

  • Nellie Escobedo October 21, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    Slender Man 😮

  • Aidan Turvey October 21, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    slenderman is based of a series of vids on youtube watch marble hornets

  • Jacob Cuevas October 21, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    movie wasn't bad, reminds me of the like slender man meets the little girl from the ring.

  • Amber Cormeny October 22, 2012 at 12:32 am

    actually, marble hornets is based off of slenderman. slenderman originated from a photoshopping contest on 4chan or some similar forum.

  • Kody Garner October 22, 2012 at 2:53 am

  • Cathy Wahlsten October 22, 2012 at 3:52 pm
