First Poster Released For “The Sacrament”

Check out the first poster for Ti West’s cult horror “The Sacrament”. The film is inspired by the very real nightmare world of Jonestown and it’s founder Jim Jones. In this fictional story three journalists visit a relative who lives on a commune controlled by the spiritual leader Gene Jones. The film will premiere at the Venice Film Festival next week but there is no official release date set for film as of yet. “The Sacrament” stars Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz, AJ Bowen, Kate Lyn Sheil.

As far as the inspiration that lead Ti West to create the horrors of Eden Parish, he had this to say to Entertainment Weekly; “Jonestown is something that I’ve always been really fascinated by, because I don’t think a lot of people understand it,” says West, who wrote, directed, edited, and produced the movie. “The people who killed themselves were not mindless cult people in robes acting like brainwashed monsters. I wanted to depict a cult that wasn’t full of psychos. They are people that you’re like, ‘Well, I don’t want to live there, but I understand why they do. And let them do whatever they want.’ Of course, things go wrong, but I think that that understanding of the mentality is very important and I think it’s overlooked in most movies, especially horror movies, because everyone wants to get to the crazy sh-t.”
