If you were a fan of Gareth Evans‘ V/H/S/2 segment “Safe Haven”, the director of both Raid films is battling another cult in Apostle, starring The Guest‘s Dan Stevens as a man who attempts to save his sister from a devious cult.
Lucy Boynton, who stars in Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express, has an important role in the film set to be released by Netflix in 2018. In speaking to Collider, she reveals that she plays the cult leader’s daughter and, well…
“It’s slightly more story heavy than The Raid films,” she explained. “It’s about a cult and a guy goes to rescue his sister from the cult and I play the cult leader’s daughter who slightly starts to realize the darkness of all that her fathers cult entails.
“It’s fun and bloody,” she adds. “There are some really, great action sequences that Raid fans will be pleased with.”
Also starring Michael Sheen, Bill Millner, and Kristine Froseth, Apostle takes place in 1905. Stevens plays Thomas Richardson, who travels to a remote island to rescue his sister after she’s kidnapped by a mysterious religious cult demanding a ransom for her safe return. It soon becomes clear that the cult will regret the day it baited this man, as he digs deeper and deeper into the secrets and lies upon which the commune is built.
Lucy Boynton also stars in Osgood Perkins’ I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House and The Blackcoat’s Daughter, as well as Don’t Knock Twice.
