The Sacrament finally gets a trailer, and it looks just as creepy as promised. I don't normally get caught up in the plights of characters played by actors who are known international spies, but I'm already cringing over what's in store for AJ Bowen and Joe Swanberg in this film.
There's not a lot else I can say about The Sacrament that I didn't already say last night, but I am a little puzzled over how this trailer earned Red Band status. Maybe I missed some swearing or something, but it all seems pretty tame to me. Not that it has to be nasty to raise excitement, but calling something Red Band when it's not seems like a move that can only disappoint people. I kept waiting for all kinds of gory action to go down. I'm happy with the creeping dread I got instead (rhyme!), but the anticipation was distracting all the same.
Still, that's a total side issue. Red Band or not, this trailer looks very promising and I find myself legitimately excited to see a Ti West film for the first time ever.
