Ti West’s latest horror, The Sacrament (read our review), which World Premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, will be releasing in the summer of 2014. Magnet Releasing has slated the thriller, based on a true story, to open on VOD platforms May 5, 2014. A Limited theatrical run begins on June 6, 2014.
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).
“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.“
