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.
