Editorial Reviews

A group of University students travel to a remote patch of land deep in the Florida swamps to complete their thesis project on Native American folklore. Two hundred years ago, this sacred land was used by Indians to judge criminals and unwanted members of the tribal community. According to legend, these grounds have the power to bring sins back to life, to bring the dead back to life and punishing whoever is guilty of serious crimes. As the students quickly find out, past actions can lead to present nightmares.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strong for an indie horror flick December 2, 2011
Gordon Sullivan, DVD Verdict --The Sacred looks and acts like a typical backwoods slasher. Roughly the first half introduces us to a group of young students as they trek to the remote swamps of Florida in search of Native American artifacts and locations. Because the film opens in the remote past as some Native Americans are mysteriously killed, we know these kids are headed straight to danger. The characters are all pretty stock types, from the rich guy to the shy "final girl." Then, about halfway through the film, we discover this isn't just another "there's a mysterious force in the woods" movie like The Evil Dead. No, The Sacred is influenced by the recent post-Saw/Cube idea of throwing a bunch of guilty people together to see what happens. That's the "twist" that The Sacred throws out halfway through; suddenly we realize this Native American land really was used for judgment, and not of the courthouse variety. The place has a habit of punishing the guilty, and it appears that everybody is guilty of something.

This combo--of the typical backwoods slasher and the "figure out who's guilty" flick--is the best thing about The Sacred. After the opening flashback, we're set up to expect trouble for our intrepid band of social scientists. Naturally, we expect that they'll be killed off one by one, but when we learn that they're being menaced because of the sins of their past it gives the film an edge. Then, rather than wondering who's going to be killed next, the audience can spend the last half of the film trying to guess the protagonists' transgressions.

Despite the relative success of its central "twist," The Sacred is not entirely successful as a film. Although I like where the plot ends up, it takes its own sweet time getting there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie!!! March 17, 2012
I thought this movie was absolute fantastic. I loved it. It was great for a low-budget film. I wish I could tell the producers and actors, in person, how great they did. I just loved the movie so much. I'm glad I bought it. It shows us that we can never get away with bad things we do.
