Ti West's The Sacrament on DVD in July

30 July 2014

From acclaimed writer/director Ti West (The Inkeepers, The House of the Devil) and horror ambassdor Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever), The Sacrament examines the last days in the life of a religious cult via West’s unique brand of smart, slow-burn terror.

The Sacrament follows two ill-fated Vice Media correspondents as they set out to document their friend’s journey to find his missing sister. Travelling outside of the United States to an undisclosed location, they are welcomed into the world of remote commune '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 and underneath the supposed harmony lies a dark and terrifying truth. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a race to escape with their lives.

The Sacrament artfully blends old-school 1970’s-style horror with a chilling psychological study of religious fanaticism and was described by Starburst as "Rewarding, compelling viewing" and FearNet as "Ti West's angriest, cleverest, and most accomplished feature yet."

The Sacrament will be released on UK DVD (what, no Blu-ray?) on 7 July 2014 by House (that's the distributor according to our sources – there's naff all on the press release) at a yet-to-be-confirmed RRP.
