After dabbling in found-footage horror via a short “V/H/S” segment, “The
Sacrament” marks “The Innkeepers” filmmaker’s first full fledged film
in the genre. Framed as a
Vice documentary (that are so in style these days), the thriller
a group who venture out to an isolated community to investigate a
possible suicide cult led by a charismatic leader. Understandably
skeptical at first, the crew slowly come around to the group’s utopian
claims, only to soon discover that the leader is in fact a nutcase.
Indie vets Joe
Swanberg, Amy Seimetz and Kate Lyn Sheil all star.
