‘Sinister’, ‘The Black Phone’ and the Horror of Obsession

Obsession is weird, right? Taken too far in one direction, it creates dogged saviors. But too far in the other way breeds psychos and killers. Like Alfred Hitchcock, Scott Derrickson seems intimately curious about people driven by their inability to let things go. Ethan Hawke plays two sides of this coin, first in Sinister and […]
