Ti West's The Sacrament

After gaining a lot of buzz on the film festival circuit over the past few months, The Sacrament finally has an official red band trailer.

The Trailer

Looks pretty good, even though I'm not a big Ti West fan. I found both The Roost and House of the Devil to be a waste of time and his additions to both V/H/S and ABCs of Death to be meh or pretty terrible. I haven't seen Innkeepers.

I actually dug Cabin Fever 2, though and his fanbase seems to really loathe that one so...yeah.

Effective trailer. Impressed that it is set in 2013, as I think we often believe that such isolated horror events can no longer occur, since we are always so connected to social media, etc. Will be interested to see how they pull it off.

love that poster, I could very well imagine that as a cover for an early 80's video nasty release, love it, not a fan of any of Ti West's movies, (not seen the roost), but always happy to see a new horror movie, looks interesting, happy to view.

I loved House of the Devil and The Innkeepers - I look forward to seeing this one

Looks great to me. I find the plausibility of places like this existing and the messed up shit going on at those places give this a scary realism...

I love West's films and am definitely looking forward to this one. There aren't many things that scare me more than these fucking bat shit insane, nutcase religious cults.

Yeah, I find religious cults fascinating and frightening at the same time. I'll see this.

Been looking forward to this one a great deal, as I'm a big fan of films about cults. Looks right up my alley.

This was amazing. Saw it at tiff. There was one scene in particular that was incredibly moving. I literally choked up. Might be his best yet

Sounds promising! Are you a fan of his previous efforts?

i'm looking forward to this as well. I really dug HotD and Innkeepers a lot. But agree that his segment for VHS was surprisingly weak.

But, based on how much i was impressed with the last two feature films he helmed and how much I love this subject/inspiration (I was really obsessed with Jim Jones in my youth) I am really really interested in seeing this one.

I REALLY want to be excited about this one but a People's Temple cult in 2013? I find that hard to believe, and one that seems to be the same in every way? I realize that they did this angle because of the found footage concept - which is neat but honestly, after having watched the real found footage of the actual people's temple cult, I don't think that this will have a big impact on me - I'd love to be proven wrong though.

Me too. I was very excited about another Ti West film, but the trailer did little for me. I will still buy the blu-ray though.

Jonestown was horrific and this looks so much like it.Many people forget that the term "Drink the Kool Aid" is a reference to Jonestown (though if I'm not mistaken the cultists actually used Flavor-Aid).
