Director Ti West has been on a roll lately, creating instant horror classics with 'The House of the Devil' and 'The Innkeepers.' His streak continues with the debut of 'The Sacrament' trailer, previewing his latest found-footage endeavor that follows two reporters on a journey to a remote "religious community" (aka a cult). Let's just say that what they find isn't nice or pleasant, which makes for a really chilling movie.
'The Sacrament,' Ti West's follow-up to 2011's 'The Innkeepers,' feels like a more mature -- albeit still slightly flawed -- outing. A trio of reporters from bad boy news brand Vice head to a cultish compound in Africa to investigate when one of their sisters sends a mysterious letter beckoning him to visit. Inspired by Jonestown (as well as the Branch Davidians and numerous other cults), 'The Sacrament' isn't quite what you expect from West, known for his slow burn horror and sharp, stinging third acts ... and that's a good thing.
We've been dying -- DYING -- for a release date for Adam Wingard's delightful horror flick 'You're Next' ever since it premiered at Fantastic Fest 2011. Now, almost a full year later, Lionsgate has graced us with an official release date. Good news: You can see 'You're Next' in 11 months!
Though it seemed like Ti West would follow 'The Innkeepers' with the sci-fi flick 'The Side Effect' starring Liv Tyler, the director has a third act twist of his own: West will direct 'The Sacrament' next, and he's got fellow horror director Eli Roth on board to produce.
