"Might very well be West’s finest work to date."
"The ominous, pulsating drone of Bates’ music, the increasing agitation of West’s editing, and the raw, video-reporter edge of Eric Robbins’ nervy camerawork all contribute to manipulate the atmosphere into one of engulfing dread in a film that gets under the skin and stays there."
"This slow-burning investigation of unseemly goings-on at a rural Christian commune is frightening in any genre language."
"Solid and smart and well-calibrated."
"The performances are strong across the board."
"It is a unique and startling tale that will haunt you for days after you’ve finished it, and boy does it whet your appetite for more from Mr West."
"Bone-chilling genre piece about religious fanaticism taken to deadly extremes."
"It’s a stone-faced, frighteningly realistic trip into a suicide cult that will leave you gutted on the way out of the theatre."
"This could be the finest horror flick you see all year."
"West delivers some of the most devastatingly disturbing imagery of the entire (TIFF) festival"
"MASTERFULLY SUSTAINED SUSPENSE. A truly haunting piece of horror. Ti West’s darkest, smartest and most gut-punch memorable film to date."
"FRIGHTENING AND TERRIFIC
"A gripping thriller, filled with tension, dread and genuine terror."
"Another horror master-class from Ti West."
"Highly Effective and Suspenseful."
"The best film Ti West has made to date."
"The Sacrament could very well be the best ensemble performance in recent horror history."
"Another excellent horror film from director Ti West."
"(Ti West’s) best film to date."
"An intelligent, frightening film."
"THE SACRAMENT is easily one of the best horror movies of this, or any, year."
"Nothing short of terrifying."
"Ti West Wows with The Sacrament"
"Sends chill down my spine"
"There are plenty of fantastical villains in this year’s summer movies. But in terms of horribly believable evil, it will be hard to top the performance of actor Gene Jones as “Father” in director Ti West‘s thriller The Sacrament."
ABOUT THE FILM
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) comes the story of two Vice Media correspondents on an adventure to document their friend’s journey to reunite with his estranged sister (Amy Seimetz, UPSTREAM COLOR). They track her to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the remote world of “Eden Parish,” a self-sustained rural utopia composed of nearly two hundred members and overseen by a mysterious leader known only as “Father”. While they are initially inspired by the community, it soon becomes evident that something is rotten in paradise. As their one night in the parish turns to day, the visitors realize that Eden Parish harbors a twisted secret. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a fight for escape and survival.
