21/12/2012 Sinister (2012)

Ethan Hawke is a writer (default film character occupation B after photographer) who relocates his family from a super swanky mansion to another incredibly large house, however what it doesn't say on the estate agents' particulars and what he doesn't tell his family is it's a MURDER HOUSE, the previous occupants being the subject of Hawke's latest book.  He becomes increasingly paranoid in a Shining style as he delves into the history, aided by some super 8 film footage conveniently left by the murderer.

It starts well enough and is well acted but is let down by the ending even though it is slightly darker than the usual Hollywood fare.  Also, despite Hawke regularly causing several loud commotions in the middle of the night (usually falling out of the attic), his family never wakes up to ask what the fuck is he doing.
