Mike Pereira continues to ravage through this year’s Toronto International Film Festival titles, this time relishing The Sacrament, from genre fav Ti West (The Roost, The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, V/H/S).
“The Sacrament might very well be West’s finest work to date. His growth as a filmmaker hits new peaks,” says Mike in his review of the found-footage docu-style horror movie set it a Jonestown type cult where we watch a mass suicide begin and the filmmakers are trapped inside.
“The Sacrament is more of a psychological thriller than anything else,” he continues. “This is real life horror with an antagonist more monstrous than any made up one. This is a figure cut right out of the headlines.”
He adds: “It crawls under your skin and stays there long after it’s over.”
