From the director of The Raid comes a new revenge thriller.
EW shared the below first look at Dan Stevens (The Guest) in Gareth Evans’ Apostle, which will World Premiere at this year’s Fantastic Fest before streaming worldwide on Netflix on October 12, 2018. The Welsh filmmaker, who also co-directed the segment ‘Safe Haven’ in our own V/H/S 2, looks to be returning to the world of sadistic cults in his latest film, which picks up in London, 1905.
“Prodigal son Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) has returned home, only to learn that his sister is being held for ransom by a religious cult. Determined to get her back at any cost, Thomas travels to the idyllic island where the cult lives under the leadership of the charismatic Prophet Malcolm (Michael Sheen). As Thomas infiltrates the island’s community, he learns that the corruption of mainland society that they claim to reject has infested the cult’s ranks nonetheless – and uncovers a secret far more evil than he could have imagined. Apostle is a harrowing occult fable where the only thing more horrifying than madness is the sinister reality behind it.”
Michael Sheen, Lucy Boynton, Bill Millner, and Kristine Froseth also star.
