Do you love cult films? If so, you should check out the creepy official trailer for The Blessed Ones!
Distributed by Wild Eye Releasing, The Blessed Ones is directed and written by Patrick O’Bell with a cast starring Dave Vescio (Wolf Mother, Hell Ranch), Andy Gates (Garden Party Massacre, Niagra), and Tamzin Brown (The Adderall Diaries, The Institute).
An isolated cult hiding in a desert enclave prepare for an prophesied apocalypse, led by a charismatic Jim Jones-like leader. As the end of the world allegedly approaches, he binds them all to a suicide pact, in hopes of transcending earth for a new life in paradise. Two dissenters flee through the vast desert wasteland on the eve of the ceremony, hunted by the cult’s enforcer – who will stop at nothing to insure that they keep their part of the bargain.
I often find cult films to be creepier than other stories. There’s just something about them that gives me the heebie-jeebies. By the looks of this trailer, The Blessed Ones is going to be pretty fucked up. We won’t have to wait too much longer to find out because it will be available nationwide July 11th on DVD and Cable VOD.
