Midnight Specials
THE DARK SIDE OF FILM, FOR MATURE AUDIENCES

PLAY TRAILER
The Sacrament
2013, 95 min., Color

Patrick is a photographer whose once drug-addicted sister, Caroline, is a member of an isolated sober-living community in Mississippi. When his sister leaves the country to start a new utopian society in the jungle, he enlists two co-workers to shoot a documentary on their whereabouts. Based on detailed research of the infamous Jonestown massacre, THE SACRAMENT is a thoroughly terrifying examination of modern religion, charismatic influence and the exploitation of power.
