Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I’m not a massive fan of Ti West’s work so far.   Cabin Fever 2 was bad, VHS bored me and I haven’t yet seen The Innkeepers.  However based on The Sacrament, West could actually be a director to watch.  Based loosely on the Jonestown Massacre, The Sacrament is a documentary style movie (NOT found footage as these films get erroneously labeled) that has a creepy unsettling feel that manages to put you on edge, anxiously awaiting for the moment where things go wrong.  Sadly when this does happen and the bodies start hitting the floor, the film feels rushed and delivers a final third that doesn’t quite live up to what went before.  It doesn’t spoil the film but it leaves you feeling that it could have been more than just good.  Overall – worth a watch!

Best Bit: It’s creepy atmosphere

Buy, Rent, Stream, Borrow: Rent

If You Liked this Try:  The Innkeepers, Cabin Fever 2, VHS
