Here we go. Strike up the band and cue the dancing girls. Yes, we’re going back to the 1920’s! Just kidding! It’s my inevitable Top 10 list of horror movies for 2012. As I looked back on the year that was in horror cinema, I felt there were some solid releases, but there also seemed to be a bit of a void as well.

With news that casting for Ti West’s new horror flick The Sacrament has been completed and has officially starting shooting in Georgia, my anticipation meter just peaked. Did I mention that Eli Roth is also producing? Nothing is known yet about the plot for The Sacrament, as it’s being heavily guarded and kept under wraps, which makes my anticipation even higher! Judging from the title and the definition of a ‘sacrament’, a safe bet would be that it will have some religious under or overtones. Mere speculation at this point, but what isn’t speculated is that Ti West has become one my favorite horror writer/directors in the last few years, giving us gems like The Roost, The Innkeepers, and my personal fav, The House Of The Devil.
Joining the cast for The Sacrament is genre favorite AJ Bowen (The House Of The Devil, The Signal), Joe Swanberg (V/H/S), Kentucker Audley (V/H/S), Amy Seimetz (The Signal), and Gene Jones (You’re Next). How awesome of a name is Kentucker by the way? Anyway, watch for more news on The Sacrament as it hits, and do yourself a favor tomorrow for Halloween and pop in Ti West’s The House Of The Devil for some required viewing!
