sacramentReviews for this film from our members:

  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Ti West regresa con un recuerdo estremecedor del conocido como el Crimen del Siglo en 1978. Un nuevo cambio de rumbo en la filmografía de un director siempre mutable dentro de su amor por el género, con un estupendo Gene Jones como eje central de la tragedia.
  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: There is nothing for us to chew on when it’s over. The Sacrament is content to give us a cavalcade of horrors but no catharsis.
  • Patrick Bromley @ F This Movie!
  • Joshua Brunsting @ The CriterionCast
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: If you know your history, this will become very apparent when the plot starts to unfold. That’s where West finds his horror: in truth and history.
  • Mark Harris @ About.com
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: A living nightmare mounted with simmering, suffocating tension and stomach-dropping intensity, “The Sacrament” would make a chilling double feature with Kevin Smith’s “Red State.” It is minimalist, all-too-real terror that pulls no punches in its visceral response.
  • [New – 12/18/14] | Daniel Lackey @ The Nightmare Gallery
    • Excerpt: Ti West shows us the face of the religious cultist, and it’s disturbingly familiar.
  • Frank Ochieng @ SF Crowsnest
    • Excerpt: Ti West’s horror gem ‘The Sacrament’ is chilling…This low-budget bungle-in-the-jungle chiller has a lot of smarts and perception about its organic fear-inducing impulses than most of its creepy contemporaries with a higher profile.
