NEW RELEASE UPDATE: THE SACRAMENT Comes Out on Blu-ray/DVD August 19th

One of my favorite releases of the year is about to hit Blu-ray and DVD. The Sacrament is basically a retelling of the Jonestown Massacre in found footage format as directed by Ti West. Even if you aren't a fan of found footage, you will be impressed by the performances. Joe Swanberg, AJ Bowen, Amy Seimetz and Kate Lyn Sheil are solid, but Gene Jones as Father knocks it out of the jungle with a full pitcher of kool-aid yelling, "hey hey hey, let's kill ourselves today!"

This may just be my favorite Ti West picture to date (a close tie with House of the Devil).

Full notes below from Magnolia/Magnet:


“Bone-chilling” (The Hollywood Reporter) Death-Cult Thriller From Acclaimed Director Ti West Arrives On Blu-ray™ and DVD August 19
From Magnolia Home Entertainment Under The Magnet Label

Two reporters for VICE Media journey to a remote Central American compound hoping to reunite with the photographer’s sister, who feels out of touch after struggling with a 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.
