[TIFF '13 Spotlight] Ti West’s ‘The Sacrament’ To Become “Cult” Classic?

The-Sacrament

In addition to being hyped for All Cheerleaders Die, Bloody Disgusting is putting the spotlight on Ti West‘s latest horror, The Sacrament, which will World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival as part of the Vanguard program.

Not only is the film directed by West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, V/H/S), and produced by Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever, The Last Exorcism, Aftershock, The Green Inferno), but it boasts quite the genre cast, including Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), AJ Bowen (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die, The House of the Devil, The Signal), Kentucker Audley (V/H/S), Amy Seimetz (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Tiny Furniture) and Gene Jones (No Country for Old Men).

This has the makings of a cult classic written all over it…

“The Sacrament follows two Vice media correspondents as they set out to document their friend’s search to find his missing sister. They travel outside of the United States to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the world of “Eden Parish,” a self-sustained rural utopia comprised of nearly 200 members. At the centre of this small, religious, socialist community is a mysterious leader known only as “Father.” As their friend reunites with his sister, it becomes apparent to the newcomers that this paradise may not be as it seems. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a race to escape with their lives.

The 38th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 5 to 15, 2013.

    Don’t care for the two main actors, but I kind of like how different West’s movies are.

    West could film grass growing for 2 hours and this site would call it a “cult classic”…..

    • Cody Wareham

      Pretty sure he was being pun-ny…

      • randallflagg666

        Really??? Have u not read how they worship every thing this over rated hack does????

  • Blood-Sicles

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this and Oculus to make an appearance at Fantastic Fest!

  • Nightflyre9

    I echo Psycrow’s feelings: I don’t care for either of the main actors, either; they were both awful in the things I’ve seen them in thus far . . . ATROCIOUS acting. And, sorry, but the plot of this movie sounds boring and cliched. Pass.

    i had NO interest in this until i read that Amy Seimetz was in it. she’s been amazing this season on THE KILLING. so i’ll watch this to see her. i could care less about anyone else in the movie or Ti West though.

    • Nightflyre9

      DJBlack, how are you, buddy!? Haven’t talked to you in a while.

  • Krug09

    Sounded good until i read that fucking hack Eli Roth was involved.

      Give me Eli Roth over Ti West any day. I’m just not a fan of West’s style.
