Red Band Trailer For Ti West’s ‘The Sacrament’ Brings On The Cult Massacre!

Published

I might be the only employee of this site that has yet to see the latest feature from Ti West, The Sacrament (read our review). I’m hoping that will change soon because the trailer looks great! It looks like West has brought a lot of atmosphere, always his strong suit, to the faux doc format. The performances also look strong across the board. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a fan of Seimetz, Bowen and Swanberg – but they all seem to be stepping outside of their comfort zones a bit here and landing nicely as they do so.

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), the film stars 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). It opens on VOD platforms May 5 with a Limited theatrical run beginning on June 6.

“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.
