(2016) Sacrifice

Sacrifice is basically a modern day The Wicker Man, if you’ve seen that and liked it, maybe you’ll like this. The townspeople sure are up to something fishy!

On a technical level it’s fine, it looks okay and the acting is whatever.

I guess it’s just kind of stupid, nothing really makes sense. I mean, it makes goddamn sense as in, I understand it. There’s just completely unfounded motivations behind a lot of the characters behavior. Subtlety is the most important virtue for a film like this and they pissed it out the window.

I can’t say it was a rough watch or anything, it kept me somewhat engaged throughout. Unfortunately by the end I realized I was being served some unoriginal bullshit. This was a random Netflix pick so I deserve this.

This is kind of a dud to close out 2016 but I hope everyone has an awesome New Years. Unless I magically conjure up friends, a worthwhile career and a meaningful existence; you can bet your sweet tits we’ll be keeping this movie-a-day streak going. Cheers!

  1. Glad to hear the movie fest will continue. The Wicker Man was certainly an interesting movie and then Nic Cage got a hold of it. The IMDB synopsis almost sounds like a plot right out of the old Night Stalker series with Darren McGavin or an X File episode. I can see where that premise might run thin if it is stretched to a full length feature.

    1. I haven’t seen the Nic Cage remake but I hear it’s just terrible haha. Yeah, it was somewhat entertaining but not nearly original enough to old my interest for too long.

      1. Yes, God love Nic but he peaked at Leaving Las Vegas & since then is struggling. Sacrifice seems like a good idea….like so many Hollywood movies. I would LOVE to be in their pitch meetings.
