If you haven't already seen this little bit of detritus floating around the internet today, Ethan Hawke did a Reddit AMA this morning and was so freaking charming everyone's heads fell off and rolled away (so be careful reading this because YOUR head could be next). There to promote his new movies, Before Midnight and The Purge, Hawke handled his first Reddit experience like a real Estella in Paris (very sexual, distrusting of men).
Sinister, which opens wide on Oct. 12, has a perfect 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of this posting. Granted, it's early still, and only 20 reviews are in (notorious horror hater Roger Ebert has yet to weigh in), but the film is inspiring gushing notices. There's no question that Scott Derrickson's film is among the best horror films of the year, but that is faint praise because it's been a really shitty year for the genre.
