What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Sacrament is a found-footage thriller with horror overtones from cult horror director Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers). Many horror fans will want to see it based on his name alone. Dozens of characters are shown dying from poison or shootings. There's some blood; necks are sliced, and a character commits suicide by shooting his head off. A woman catches on fire, and children and babies are given poison. Language-wise, "f--k" and "s--t" are heard several times. A character snorts cocaine, and though it's mostly off screen, it's clear what he's doing. Many characters are referred to as recovering alcoholics or drug addicts. In one scene, it's suggested that a male character is having a threesome with two women, though nothing is shown. The movie has a fair bit in common with the real-life 1978 Jonestown Massacre, and parents may want to educate older teens about this incident in relation to the movie.
