I enjoy Ti West and think he is an underrated horror director. It seems that the main cast all worked together before with each other and with Ti West. It's funny that this is a movie about cults and I'm pretty sure this will only get a cult following and live under the radar. The tone of the film is creepy and for the majority of the film nothing too interesting really happens to be honest. Who w... read more

Ti West has made somewhat of a name for himself as a purveyor of excellent slow-burn horror cinema over the years. Though he has on occasion ventured outside of those genre constraints it seems that he always finds his strength in the embrace of the macabre. With "The Sacrament" West mixes his trademark methodical pacing with a faux documentary device to give us a peek into one of the world's most... read more

A fashion photographer is traveling to meet his sister at Eden Parish. Once there, his friends begin to film interviews with the Eden Parish inhabitants, all of whom speak of the commune in glowing terms. However, they soon discover that there is a sinister edge to the commune that belies the seemingly peaceful setting.

" First Viewing Viewing Date: October 22nd Via: Amazon Prime Video (via VPN) Plot: A news team trails a man as he travels into the world of Eden Parish to find his missing sister, where it becomes apparent that this paradise may not be as it seems. Rating: 7.3/10 Why Did I Watch It? It was on my watchlist for some time due to the positive reviews and director Ti West. Plus, it's horror season."

“Ti West has made somewhat of a name for himself as a purveyor of excellent slow-burn horror cinema over the years.

With "The Sacrament" West mixes his trademark methodical pacing with a faux documentary device to give us a peek into one of the world's most horrifying events.

Little is done to pull the wool over the viewer's eyes and hide the parallels to the Jonestown Massacre. Quite the contrary, it revels in tapping into familiar touchstones of the near mythological status of that tragedy. Though it is never outright beholden to the truth, the film manages to foment a steadily increasing sense of impending doom by sheer nature of audien” read more

"7.10. Jonestownia esikuvanaan käyttänyt mukadokkari paljastuu yllättävän raadolliseksi lopussa. En olisi uskonut, että "köyhänmiehen Eli Roth" (lue: Ti West) tekee näinkin pahanenteisen ja pahaa mieltä tuovan elokuvan."

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: November (23 movies items)

"First viewing - Nov. 5th Well, this is an interesting little horror film, and one that clearly has a polarizing effect on its viewers. Basically it tells a fictional version of the Jonestown Massacre within the found footage format, and I thought this method worked fairly well. We're told the whole thing was covered by long-time journalists used to documenting everything, which helps the professional camerawork come off as believable. I especially dig the fact that despite a subtle sense of dre"
