Right on the heels of yesterday’s poster debut for Ti West’s The Sacrament is the film’s very first red-band trailer. I’ve watched the trailer a couple of times now, and I can’t for the life of me figure why it has been labeled with a red band. Nonetheless, the trailer for one of 2014’s most anticipated horror movies is now available for you guys to check out, and it’s pretty solid. Look for The Sacrament on VOD May 1st!
West quickly made a name for himself in the genre with his fantastic throwback haunter The House of the Devil and is without a doubt one of the most exciting genre directors working today and it looks like he has delivered another solid entry into the genre. The buzz on this one has been nothing but good thus far, proving that the tandem of Eli Roth and Ti West was truly a match made in hell.
The Sacrament centers around two reporters for VICE Media who journey to a remote Central American compound along with a photographer (Kentucker Audley) hoping to reunite with his sister (Amy Seimetz), who has dropped off the map after struggling with drug addiction. They find an isolated community of true believers devoted to a shadowy but charismatic figure called “Father.” Skeptical at first, the journalists begin to come around to the group’s utopian claims, until things rapidly take a very dark turn.
The Sacrament stars AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Kentucker Audley and Amy Seimetz. Check out the trailer below!
