After being warned to leave before sundown, hearing voices,and needing medical attention the students opt to stay the night. Oh yea, it also seems this tribe had its own written language similar to other local tribes. Something else my history book missed.
You know what is going to happen. Students will be judged and haunted by their past sins.
I liked the concept of the film, however the characters were a bit dry. They didn't grab me. They needed stronger characters with better dialogue and sins.
Parental Guide: F-bomb. Brief sex scene. No nudity.
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.Read more ›

This was a somewhat entertaining supernatural Slasher that has pretty good acting, nice scenery seeing as it was filmed on and off of a river in Florida. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Dayna Newman Slasher Diva
