The new Ti West directed film, The Sacrament, hit VOD and iTunes on May 3rd and you can catch a limited theatrical run starting June 6th. In the meantime, here’s a new clip along with the original trailer. I expect big things based on the talent involved on this film. Ti West is the director of The Innkeepers, The House of the Devil, and V/H/S. The film is produced by Eli Roth (The Green Inferno, Aftershock, The Last Exorcism) and stars AJ Bowen (A Horrible Way to Die, You’re Next), Joe Swanberg (You’re Next, V/H/S), Kentucker Audley (V/H/S), Amy Seimetz (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die), 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.“
