For February 2021, we’ve crafted a #MonthOfDread about Cults! It’s designed to tie-in with DREAD’s release of Sacrifice (on VOD February 10th, Blu-ray on February 23rd).
Inspired by the Paul Kane short story “Men of The Cloth”, Sacrifice is written and directed by Andy Collier and Tor Mian, and stars horror icon Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond, You’re Next), Dag Sorlie, Erik Lundin, Jack Kristiansen, Johanna Adde Dahl, Ludovic Hughes, Lukas Loughran, and Sophie Stevens. The film follows an American couple visiting a remote Norwegian Island who is drawn into a sinister cult that worships a sea-dwelling deity. Check out the trailer and read more about the movie below!
New Yorker Isaac and his pregnant wife return to a remote Norwegian village of his birth to claim an unexpected inheritance. Here they find themselves caught in a nightmare as an ancient evil awakens to claim a birthright of its own.
Ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween? Do you have the gumption and the stamina to consume a new horror movie every day for an entire year? If so, feast your eyes on February’s 28-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2021 on Social Media!
