Sacrament (Shawn Ewert)

sacramentDirector: Shawn Ewert
Country: United States of America
Language: English
Runtime: 1 h 45 min

A group of young adults decide to go all out for the weekend, including having sex, doing drugs and drinking lots of booze. The village where all of this takes place reminds me of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and 2001 Maniacs. This little village is led by a priest who has a pretty peculiar interpretation of the bible and how sinners should be dealt with. They indulge on the body of the sinner, in other words: they’re cannibals.

Sacrament may not be the most innovative movie, but for a slasher it’s an entertaining one. Shawn shows us a nice hommage to the Southern Slasher with a final role for Scream Queen Marilyn Burns.
