From acclaimed writer/director Ti West (The InnkeepersThe House of the Devil) and master of horror Eli Roth (The Last ExorcismHostel,Cabin Fever), The Sacrament follows two Vice Media correspondents as they set out to document their friend’s journey to find his missing sister. They travel outside of the United States to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the world of “Eden Parish,” a self-sustained rural utopia, comprised of nearly two hundred members. At the center of this small, religious, socialist community is a mysterious leader known only as “Father.” As their friend reunites with his sister, it becomes apparent to the newcomers that this paradise may not be as it seems. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a race to escape with their lives.

Director West started with the concept of a mini-series inspired by the Jonestown Massacre, but his impatience led him to rework it into a feature film because he thought that had a better chance of getting off the ground. “My goal was to create an elevated genre film that examines the last days in the life of a religious cult,” explained West. “It is rare to find films like these that are more than just cheap thrills.”

The film also stars Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, A Horrible Way to Die), A.J. Bowen (You’re Next) and Gene Jones (No Country For Old MenBoardwalk Empire)

Bonus Features include: Creating The Sacrament: Revealing the Vision, Working with the Director: The Ti West Experience, Preparing for Takeoff: Behind the Scenes Helicopter Sequence, AXS TV: A look at The Sacrament, Commentary with Writer/Director Ti West, AJ Bown and Amy Seimetz
