One of the bigger horror successes out of TIFF this year was The Sacrament, the Eli Roth-produced found-footage horror from director Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, V/H/S). Now, per Deadline, it appears that Magnolia may be picking up the film. This probably means you’ll be able to see it on VOD this year with a limited theatrical release to follow.

Starring 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), the film follows two journalists who are documenting a man’s search for his missing sister find themselves on the run after the locate the woman in a rural cult who is preparing for a mass suicide.

    As much hate as Ti and Eli have been receiving lately I’m still pretty excited for this.

    I saw this last week and thought it was just alright. All they did was take the Jonestown massacre and add the journalism/found footage angle. There are no surprises, you know exactly what’s going to happen in the end. The “Father” character was well done though. Definitely not the best of this year’s Midnight Madness/Vanguard selections.
