Roll up, roll up! We've got two new stills from the nightmare-inducing The Sacrament.

Here at Moviepilot, we've been uncontrollably excited about ridiculously-young-and-dynamic 's latest offering for a while now. If West's name sounds familiar, that's because he directed two of the most exciting, nuanced horror movies of recent years – the 1980s influenced The House of the Devil and The Inkeepers as well as the Second Honeymoon segment of V/H/S. He's now teamed up with , who produced the flick and Vice Magazine to bring together a found-footage horror about a cult.

Here's the official synopsis:

The Sacrament follows two Vice media correspondents as they set out to document their friend's search to find his missing sister. They travel outside of the United States to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the world of "Eden Parish," a self-sustained rural utopia comprised of nearly 200 members. At the centre of this small, religious, socialist community is a mysterious leader known only as "Father." As their friend reunites with his sister, it becomes apparent to the newcomers that this paradise may not be as it seems. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a race to escape with their lives.

The stills make the cult look like a latter-day Jonestown...

Do you think this sounds like an interesting project? Or is it not for you? Let me know below.
