Eli Roth reveals the plot of Ti West's The Sacrament

Feb. 22, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

Even since it was first announced, THE SACRAMENT has been shrouded in secrecy; we know it's directed by Ti West and produced by Eli Roth, and that it stars AJ Bowen and a few others, but aside from that, zilch. Even the first photo revealed (see it above) didn't help to divulge much. But now we know quite a bit more about it, thanks to Mr. Roth himself.

In a Q+A session with The Guardian, Roth spilled the beans on THE SACRAMENT's basic plot. His quotes on the matter:

I'm now producing a film called The Sacrament that Ti West produced and directed. He made a terrific film called House of the Devil, and had a great idea about a found footage docu-style horror movie set it a Jonestown type cult where we watch a mass suicide begin and the film makers are trapped inside. It's really, really scary.

So there you have it: A suicide cult, found footage style!

THE SACRAMENT stars AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Kentucker Audley, Amy Seimetz and Gene Jones. It's currently in post-production.

Found-footage is not always the way for a horror film to go. Granted, our modern society seemingly films everything. But, sometimes, a found-footage's constant camera seems implausible. However, The Sacrament has a plot that would justify someone filming everything. Furthermore, actual Jonestown documentaires scare the hell out of a person. These events really do happen. And, people really do leave the records of them.

Ti West's slowburn style might fit the project as well. Imagine a real

Ti West's slowburn style might fit the project as well. Imagine a real cult slowly going to hell. The group would not fall apart all at once. Rather, ominous events would add up to something horrifying such as the plots do in The Innkeepers or The House of the Devil.

Since this is a Ti West film, I'm gonna see how it plays out. The first 96% of it just the leads in the town, the plot doesn't movie. At 97%, they find out whats going on, 98% the shit hits the fan all of a sudden, 100% its over. Seriously, this guy CANNOT pace a damn movie for his life.

I particularly like the way he paces his films, although I see his style is probably not for everyone.
