Writer and director Ti West’s (House of the Devil, The Innkeepers) latest terror flick, The Sacrament has just come off of a pretty successful festival run this year. Now distributor Magnet Releasing has set a June 6th, 2014 theatrical release date.
Per Deadline, Ti West‘s Jonestown-esque thriller The Sacrament has been set for a June 6, 2014 theatrical release. Before then it will hit VOD on May 1, 2014.
Magnet and West are frequent collaborators, working together on West’s landmark horror film The House of the Devil, as well The Innkeepers, V/H/S and The ABCs of Death. The Sacrament was produced and financed by Worldview Entertainment. Eli Roth, Jacob Jaffke, Peter Phok, and Worldview’s Christopher Woodrow and Molly Conners produced.
The Sacrament stars AJ Bowen (TheHouse of the Devil), Joe Swanberg (You’re Next) and Amy Seimetz (Upstream Color), and features a star-making performance from Gene Jones as the charismatic cult leader known as “Father.”
The film stars Bowen and Swanberg as reporters for VICE Media who journey to a remote Central American compound along with a photographer (Kentucker Audley) hoping to reunite with his sister (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.
