Director Ti West (House of the Devil) teams with producers Eli Roth, Christopher Woodrow, and Molly Conners for this horror film starring A.J. Bowen, Amy Seimetz, Joe Swanberg, and Kentucker Audley. The plot centers on two VICE Media reporters (Bowen and Swanberg) who, along with their cameraman (Audley), venture to a Jonestown-like, Central American compound in search of the photographer's missing, drug-addicted sister (Seimetz). Upon entering the community and meeting its charismatic leader "Father" (Gene Jones), the mood quickly shifts from celebratory to terrifying.
