Yesterday saw the unveiling of the official poster for THE SACRAMENT, which comes from director Ti West and producer Eli Roth. To follow up on that, here's the red-band trailer for the cult thriller.
When we caught it at TIFF last year, we gave THE SACRAMENT a mixed but mostly positive review, but general the film has been receiving very good buzz.
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 Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz, AJ Bowen, Kate Lyn Sheil, Gene Jones and Kentucker Audley. Magnet Releasing will put the film out on VOD May 1st before giving it a limited theatrical release in theaters June 6th.
