Sinister, the devil in the (home movie) details flick starring Ethan Hawke, hit theaters to mixed reviews, but crushed at the box office when one considers the money put in, pulling over $47 million at the domestic box office on a $3 million budget. If you missed the horror flick during its theatrical run, Sinister is hitting Blu-ray and DVD on February 19.

The thing I really liked about Sinister was its setup, which placed Hawke’s writer character Ellison Oswald, as well as his family, smack into the middle of some horrible danger. The twisted thing about this is that Oswald himself puts the family into the bad position. That’s a perfect premise for a horror flick, and regardless of what else the film does right and wrong, screenwriters C. Robert Derrickson and Scott Derrickson (who also directed) deserve credit for that one germ of an idea. I would also like to note that the film employs some found footage in its premise, so if you aren't really into that technique, Sinister may not be the horror flick for you.

Sinister will be available on both Blu-ray and DVD for very different costs, but the same bonus features. Thus, if you aren’t super particular about how your picture looks, or don’t have a TV that really makes the picture matter, a DVD copy may be your better option. Blu-ray sets will run for $39.99 and DVD copies will cost $29.95. Both sets will come with plenty of audio commentary and a few featurettes. You can check out the full list, below.

  • Audio commentary with director Scott Derrickson
  • Audio commentary with writers Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill
  • "Living in a House of Death" featurette
  • "True Crime Authors" featurette
  • Deleted scenes with optional audio commentary with director Scott Derrickson
