A month ago we saw the red-band trailer for the Ti West-directed, Eli Roth-produced THE SACRAMENT, but have heard little from the cult thriller since. Today we've got the official trailer for the film, which if we're being honest is incredibly similar to the red-band version. But, a refresher can't hurt.
Here's our review from TIFF last year.
From acclaimed writer/director Ti West (THE INNKEEPERS, THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL) and master of horror Eli Roth (THE LAST EXORCISM, HOSTEL, CABIN FEVER), THE SACRAMENT follows two Vice Media correspondents as they set out to document their friend's journey 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 two hundred members. At the center 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.
THE SACRAMENT stars AJ Bowen, Gene Jones, Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz, Kate Lyn Sheil and Kentucker Audley. Magnet Releasing will put the film out on VOD May 1st before giving it a limited theatrical release June 6th.
