The first still has been released from Ti West’s secretive new horror flick, The Sacrament. While West is keeping his new film very secret, we can already see from the above image that it is on a much bigger scale than House of the Devil and The Innkeepers (it is out in the open and has a freakin helicopter for God sake!), so we could be on to another winner here but in a very different setting to his previous classic chillers.
Anyone who has seen Cabin Fever 2 will agree that the film was a bit rubbish, but proves that when West wants to add the gore he certainly has the talents to do so, and it appears that The Sacrament might require some blood and gore effects.
In the image we see star AJ Bowen running from something horrible in the woods. We do not know what he is running from, but clearly something nasty has gone down as he has blood on his t-shirt, and he really needs to get to that chopper. The way the image is presented would suggest that whatever is chasing Bowen is close behind…
The director of such horror classics like House of the Devil, The Innkeepers and the ‘Second Honeymoon segment in horror anthology V/H/S, is back. Ti West’s latest venture into bare bones terror is produced and “presented” by Eli Roth along with Worldview Pictures (who are also producing Roth’s The Green Inferno), and here is the rather impressive cast list:
Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), AJ Bowen (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die, House of the Devil, The Signal), Kentucker Audley (V/H/S), Amy Seimetz (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Tiny Furniture) and Gene Jones (No Country for Old Men)
