'Sinister' helmer Scott Derrickson on a meeting of minds

According to helmer Scott Derrickson, Summit’s “Sinister” began over a couple of drinks at 3 a.m. at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. It was there in Vegas that he met writer C. Robert Cargill and they began writing the script.

“From me meeting him in Vegas to the finish of the movie was less than a year,” Derrickson noted.

Monday’s preem at Westwood’s Landmark Theater effectively kicked off the Halloween season in Hollywood.

Ten-year-old thesp Clara Foley said the making of the Ethan Hawke starrer was “more fun than scary.” And she remained hopeful about eventually viewing her work.

“I’m not seeing the movie tonight because it’s rated R,” Foley revealed, “but I might see it in the future.”

Derrickson also remarked that the horror pic was “fun,” especially working with the kid-actors, because they love “dressing up and getting a little blood on their hands. It’s like Halloween to them.”
