If you’re like me, you actively avoid red-band trailers because they tend to give away some of the biggest and best moments of a movie. Well, we can now breathe a sigh of relief and delve into Ti West‘s latest film, The Sacrament. Hot off the heels of last week’s red band trailer, the theatrical trailer has finally been released for the thriller. It follows a Vice camera crew who travels to visit a religious cult. Things, of course, don’t go particularly well from there.

The latest from the director of The House of the Devil and The Innkeepers hits theaters June 6 and VOD May 1. Check out the trailer below. Read More »


Imagine if Vice had been around in the days of Jim Jones, who formed his own community in Guyana and then led the residents in “revolutionary suicide,” which left over 900 people dead by cyanide poisoning in 1978. What if Vice had been around to travel to the Peoples Temple Agricultural Project, aka Jonestown, just before the Jonestown Massacre took place? That’s essentially the plot of The Sacrament, the new film from House of the Devil and The Innkeepers director Ti West.

Gene Jones, who played a gas station owner who met the devil in No Country for Old Men, this time gets to be the devil as he plays the Jim Jones-like leader of a community/cult that is visited by a Vice documentary crew. A.J. Bowen (House of the Devil, You’re Next) is the guy who leads the small crew into hell.

Below you’ll find an alluring and ultimately disturbing red band trailer. Read More »
