This action extravaganza has been playing huge at genre festivals and it's been earning rave reviews from everyone who has experienced it so far.

‘Apostle’ Review: Netflix Thriller With Dan Stevens Is Ludicrous, Bloody Mayhem from ‘The Raid’ Director — Fantastic Fest

‘Apostle’ Review: Netflix Thriller With Dan Stevens Is Ludicrous, Bloody Mayhem from ‘The Raid’ Director — Fantastic Fest
Anyone familiar with the brutal martial showdowns of Indonesian thriller “The Raid: Redemption” and its sequel will go into “Apostle” expecting the wrong movie. In this gnarly occult thriller set on an island full of devious people in 1902, writer-director Gareth EvansNetflix thriller trades the intensity of hand-to-hand combat for a ludicrous mishmash of gore, espionage, estranged family dynamics, and half-formed supernatural conceits. At over two hours, Evans demonstrates a formidable commitment to seeing this unseemly formula through, with the sort of mixed results of a visionary filmmaker launching into unwieldy terrain. The visceral intensity is there, delivered in shocking bursts of sudden twists not unlike the jarring fisticuffs that dominated “The Raid,” but it tends to dangle with a grotesque emptiness at odds with the material.

At first, “Apostle” sets the stage for a daring rescue mission. Thomas Richardson, the estranged son of a wealthy British family, gets recruited

Apostle Review [Fantastic Fest 2018]

Gareth Evans’ Apostle is a slow-burn detour around the director’s bruiser action sensibilities (The Raid franchise). More a feature reimagining of “Safe Haven,” that wicked cultist V/H/S/2 segment Evans co-directed with Indonesia’s Timo Tjahjanto, with a heavy emphasis on “slow-burn.” At 129 minutes, Evans explores a secluded hideaway settled by escaped “traitors” and overseen by a female goddess. Themes toy with sacrifice, blood donation, and a mother’s nurturing strength. It’s at times terrifying, at times plodding, but altogether a chill-worthy tale of revenge, discovery, and blind devotion to steadfast faith (that I wish Netflix would release in theaters because wow does the cinematography impress).

Dan Stevens stars as Thomas Richardson, an ex-priest and brother who must invade a naturalist cult to save his kidnapped sister. All Prophet Malcolm (Michael Sheen) wants is a ransom payday from Thomas’ father, but the furious son is not there to pay off ill deeds.

First Trailer for Gareth Evans' Cult Horror 'Apostle' with Dan Stevens

"Your eyes... they've seen things. Who are you...?" Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for Gareth Evans' new film Apostle, his follow-up and latest film since making The Raid and The Raid 2, and the V/H/S/2 segment. Apostle is set to premiere at Fantastic Fest, then the Sitges Film Festival over the next month before arriving on Netflix. Set in 1905, the film is about a man who travels to a remote island to rescue his sister after she’s kidnapped by a mysterious religious cult demanding a ransom for her safe return. It soon becomes clear that the cult will rue the day it baited this man, as he digs deeper and deeper into the secrets and lies upon which the commune is built. Starring Dan Stevens, Lucy Boynton, Mark Lewis Jones, Michael Sheen, Kristine Froseth, Bill Milner, Elen Rhys, and Annes Elwy. This looks super creepy and twisted, extra intense and ultra violent,

Fantastic Fest Announces First Wave of Lineup, Including Lee Chang-dong’s Cannes Favorite ‘Burning’
Entering its 14th year as one of the country’s leading genre festivals, Fantastic Fest announced its first round of titles, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. The Austin-based festival will host the world premieres of World War II horror-thriller “Overlord,” produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot, as well as “The Raid” director Gareth Evans’ gothic horror “Apostle,” starring Dan Stevens and Michael Sheen. Another alum from “The Raid,” Iko Uwais, leads “The Night Comes for Us,” a thrilling bone-cruncher from “V/H/S/2” scribe Timo Tjahjanto.

After a highly successful premiere at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Lee Chang-dong’s “Burning” will play the festival ahead of its theatrical release later this year. Fantastic Fest will also shine a light on two rarely-screened South Korean films; “Ban Geum-ryeon,” from one of Park Chan-Wook’s directing idols Kim Ki-Young, and Park Nou-Sik’s “Quit Your Life.”

SXSW 2013 Midnight Movies Lineup

Less than a week ago we brought you the complete list of Narrative Features that will be spotlighted at this year's 2013 SXSW Film Festival taking place in Austin, TX from March 8-16. Today, SXSW made the additional announcement that many, including myself, have been waiting for; The Midnighters.

One of my favorite parts of the SXSW Film Festival is the Midnight Movies. The SXSW compiles the latest in Horror, Cult, and the absolutely insane and shows a different one each night at the South Lamar Drafthouse. Getting to watch these types of films late at night surrounded by fellow genre fans in one of the finest theatrical settings the Earth has ever known is literally every bit as awesome as it sounds.

Of the 9 announced Midnight feature films, the one I am most excited about is Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem. SXSW will be the movie's Us premiere, a

Do you have fond memories of renting films from old-school video stores (after, of course, you forked over 7 different types of identification and a $75 deposit)? Then the new documentary Rewind This!, which premieres at next month’s SXSW Film Festival, may well be up your alley.

SXSW 2013: you're Next, The Rambler, & (Renamed) V/H/S/2 Lead Midnight and Shorts Announcements

It's been a bit of a wait, but Adam Wingard's home invasion hoedown You're Next (our review) is finally being resuscitated. Although it was purchased after Tiff 2011, the film got caught in Lionsgate-Summit merger purgatory. It's now dated for August 2013, but the exciting news is that the film will make its triumphant return to the public eye with a midnight slot at SXSW 2013. Joining it will V/H/S/2 (somewhat disappointingly renamed from the clever S-vhs that premiered a few weeks ago at Sundance - our review), the world premiere of Vincenzo Natali's Splice follow-up, Haunter, and the reteaming of Pat Healy and Sara Paxton in E.L. Katz's Cheap Thrills. The Sundance premiering The Rambler (our review) and Tiff premiering Lords of Salem (our review) also...

'You're Next' Duo Moves from Horror to New 'The Guest' Action Thriller

You might recognize director Adam Wingard's name from his work helming segments of horror anthologies like The ABCs of Death or VHS and S-vhs, because only a lucky few have seen his genre-busting thriller You're Next, which premiered back at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011 (read Jeremy's review from Fantastic Fest). That movie is finally set to be released in August of 2013, but Variety reports that Wingard and writer Simon Barrett have a new film in the works called The Guest, and it takes the duo away from pure horror and into a different kind of genre than they've done before. Read on! The Guest is being pegged as an action thriller about a soldier who is brought into the home of a fallen ally, but when dangerous secrets about his past are discovered, he becomes a threat to everyone around him.
