Editorial Reviews

Two journalists set out to document their friend's journey to reunite with his estranged sister. They track her to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the remote world of "Eden Parish," a self-sustained rural utopia composed of nearly two hundred members and overseen by a mysterious leader known only as "Father." It quickly becomes evident to the newcomers that this paradise may not be as it seems. Eden Parish harbors a twisted secret. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a fight for survival.

"The Sacrament" or the "The Last Sacrament" (depending on what name you heard it promoted by) is a decently paced and plotted revisit of the Jonestown massacre of the late 70's. The Ti West directed, Eli Roth produced film brings with it some powerful scenes and action, despite being completely predictable in its outcome. For those of us old enough to remember Jonestown first hand, and for those of us in the Bay Area, like myself, where the overwhelming number of the victims of the People Temple lived, the film brings some chills. And actually, the film softens the blow a little compared the real life horrors of the cult's demise.
Gene Jones' (strange irony) performance is electric, making the rest of the performers pale in comparison. If the whole film was as good as Jones, this would have been a 4 1/2 or 5 star effort. As it is, it's a reach to spend $9.99 for this, but if and when the price drops, it's worth a watch.

Which many people do not. I thought the acting was excellent and so was the pacing and the end of it was gripping and terrifying. If you think you might be offended by a real event be dramatized in graphic detail this movie isn't for you. Also if you don't like the slow burn that Ti West delivers you will probably be bored. There isn't instant payoff here.

Like another movie I have seen recently (Here comes the Devil) I'm sure this will be a love it or hate it affair for most. For me movies like this just show that there is some life left in the horror genre.

The Sacrament is the type of horror fiction that is only worthwhile for a handful of scenes. It begins with a minor variation on the irritatingly boring found-footage method. A reporter from Vice Magazine receives contact from his lost sister who is living in a hippie cult. She invites him over to visit her there. He agrees to come and brings some of his fellow reporters to document the trip and make a segment about the cult.

As they arrive and enter the supposedly peaceful commune, they are met by men with machine guns. Surprise, surprise, it’s not what they thought it would be! Creepy children, a dangerously delusional religious figure, brainwashed followers and prominent crosses bring much of the usual taste from modern horror cinema. The Sacrament brings nothing new to the table, other than some great acting by the religious leader and cool cinematography. Overall, the found-footage aspect is extremely unrealistic, opting for nice shots rather than logical character choices. I can’t understand why they didn’t just do the film without shaky cam. Clearly, this film is standard-issue for horror.

The subject matter was kind of fun, if you find cults intriguing, which I do. The cinematography looked great. Maybe just turn off your brain, because this is not a movie that you want to think about or you’ll realize how few moments are actually even remotely plausible.

Grade: C+

I was looking forward to this movie for a long time. I walked away from it feeling slightly underwhelmed, something I'm starting recognize as a trait in Ti West movies.
Shot in the "found footage" style, the story is of a news magazine crew and their trip to visit the sister of a crew member, who has joined a cult and moved to South America. Once they arrive, the compound seems like a peaceful and self sufficient commune. Of course, everything is not as it seems.
I can't say I didn't like the movie, it had its moments. But, I just kept waiting for more. I kept wondering when the " big secret" was going to be revealed. It never was. Why does it seem like all of Ti West's movies have huge build-ups to nothing?!
The movie is well made. The acting is good, Gene Jones especially. This is definitely Ti West's most "realistic" movie (clearly based on Jonestown). Most of the writing is pretty good, with a decent amount of suspense (this is NOT a horror movie). But, it just feels like it's building towards something a lot bigger than what we get. I never understand setting out to make a movie where people are going to guess the ending halfway through.
Ti West films generally tend to divide audiences. They are of the "love it or hate it" category. This one, I suspect, is going to be no different. I'm somewhere in the middle. I didn't hate it, but I was still disappointed.

"The Sacrament" is an excellent film - very powerful. Very scary. It's a re-telling of the cult following of Jim Jones and the tragic mass suicide at The People's Temple in Guyana in 1978. I remember the actual events - absolutely horrifying. Ti West did masterful work writing and directing this haunting film, and Gene Jones is compelling as the Jim Jones inspired character mysteriously named "Father". Ultimately, this film is a cautionary tale - It's so scary that some people are willing to throw everything away just to blindly follow some fanatical cult leader. I highly recommend "The Sacrament".

I have yet to be let down by Ti West. I honestly am saying that after watching everything he has done in hollywood. I hope he gets over with the mainstream audience sooner than later. If you're on the fence about this movie don't fret, it is very much worth it. If it peaks you're interest in Past works of Mr. West his movies always have good structure and the characters are easy to relate to. I am going out of my way to write this review because the work is worth it.
