Great horror flick with a out Hollywood, 16 August 2011
Author: trueflyingarrow

I was so amazed to find out that this movie is an independent production shot in Florida by Florida filmmakers! It shows like something we expect out of L.A. The Sacred proves that with awesome talent and a vision behind a film, even a low budget cannot keep a good movie from being made. The first thing one will notice is that the cinematography is superb. The lighting choices and perspectives of the shots play perfectly with the script to tell the story. Secondly, the acting was spot-on. The characters were believable and not overacted as in other horror films. So many times, especially on low budget horror films, it is just one scare tactic after another and story/relationships, etc... take a back seat. It was refreshing to see that story drove the movie. As an audience member, I was drawn into the river trip and curious from the first frame. That is more than I can say about most movies showing up in theaters lately-especially from the ones considered low-budget. Many kudos to this Indie crew for a very watchable movie that could very well become a cult classic.
