Fan of Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer? Then get ready for director Jon Knautz’s latest horror film, The Shrine, which is currently lensing in Toronto, Canada. While filming is still underway, we got our hands on the second teaser trailer that you’ll find beyond the break. The film is about a group of young journalists who investigate a cult said to practice human sacrifice – but their ambitious ways may lead them to becoming the cult’s next victims.
Starring Aaron Ashmore, Trevor Matthews, Cindy Sampson, Ben Lewis, Connor Stanhope, Paulino Nunes, Monica Bugajski, Stefan Hayes, Vieslav Krystyan and Alexander Krstich, after a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote Polish village called Alvaina. Upon further investigation, the journalists discover that Alvaina has a history of bizarre cult activity revolving around human sacrifice. Hellbent on revealing the truth, they travel to the small village to uncover the story first hand. But after the discovery of an ancient stone statue hidden within the town, they quickly find themselves pursued by a mysterious and vengeful group of locals. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalists soon realize that Alvaina hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine.
Check out tons of tons of stills and behind-the-scenes photos at the film’s official website:
