Films about cults tend to be unnerving and eerily effective. Think THE WICKER MAN. ROSEMARY'S BABY. MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE. THE VILLAGE. Ok, maybe not that last one, but you get what I'm saying. There's just something terrifying about the idea of a secret society with dark and sinsiter intentions.
Today we're ready to take you to the dark side with a first look at the trailer to director Swamy Kandan's cult-based horror THE SECRET VILLAGE, starring Jonathan Bennett (Memorial Day), Ali Faulkner (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1), Stelio Savante (StarshipTroopers Marauder) and Richard Riehle (Halloween II).
THE SECRET VILLAGE follows Greg (Bennett), an unsuccessful screenwriter and Rachel (Faulkner), a spunky journalist, as they research an outbreak of mass hysteria and ergot poisoning in a small village. They rent a house together and start to uncover a secret that has affected this village for years. But the cult activity has been kept a secret by the locals (Savante and Riehle) and when Greg disappears, Rachel is left alone to unravel the mystery and save their lives.
Ali Faulkner can also be seen in the upcoming BAD KIDS GO TO HELL.
