A September 17th premiere date has been set for the trailer for Netflix’s horror occult film “Apostle” which hails from “The Raid” and “The Raid 2” director Gareth Evans. Evans has also released a three-second clip from the preview which comes ahead of the film’s world premiere at Fantastic Fest in late September. So far only one photo and one poster have been released.
London, 1905. Prodigal son Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) returns home, only to learn that his sister (Lucy Boynton) is being held for ransom by a religious cult. Determined to get her back at any cost, he travels to the idyllic island where the cult lives under the leadership of the charismatic Prophet Malcolm (Michael Sheen).
As Thomas infiltrates the island’s community, he learns that the corruption of mainland society that they claim to reject has infested the cult’s ranks nonetheless – and uncovers a secret far more evil than he could have imagined. Aram Tertzakian and Ed Talfan are producing the film which will premiere globally on Netflix on October 12th.
