Trick 'r Treat: The Awesome Fest presents a free screening of The Sacrament at The Philadelphia Film Festival with Ti West in attendance!

Official Seal

It's Halloween Season, one of our favorite times of the year, and while most Trick 'r Treaters expect free candy, we prefer to deliver free movies!

In partnership with the 22nd Philadelphia Film Festival (October 17th-27th), The Awesome Fest is giving away EVERY DAMN SEAT in the theater for the Philadelphia Premiere of THE SACRAMENT, on Monday, October 21st, 9:00pm at The Ritz East. Even more awesome, Director Ti West (House Of The Devil, The Innkeepers) will be in attendance!

The rules are simple: Show up, get in line, and upon entry say "Trick 'r Treat".

To further all this horrorween awesomeness, we have cast a spell to make ALL tickets for any film in the GRAVEYARD SHIFT program, $6.66. That's nearly half the regular admission price! Price drops will occur at noon, on Thursday, via the festival website,

These titles include:

BIG BAD WOLVES (Quentin Tarantino's favorite film of the year)

About THE SACRAMENT, per The Philadelphia Film Festival Guide:

This chilling fictional examination of the final days of a religious cult by writer/director Ti West is an unnerving reflection on the history of Jonestown and similar tragedies.

When Patrick receives a letter from his estranged sister explaining how she has found peace within the gates of an agrarian commune in a remote foreign land, he sets off with two colleagues, both correspondents from Vice magazine, to find her and document her new lifestyle. Cameras in hand and skepticism barely in check, the three men travel to the small village, where they find people of all types and ages living in harmony, guided by the spiritual leadership of a man they all call Father. “We’ve built Heaven here on Earth,” a young woman explains. As day turns to night, however, the darkness that lies behind the whitewashed walls of the cloistered community reveals itself, threatening to overwhelm everyone — believer and non-believer alike — in an unspeakable act of delusional devotion. West is one of the leading voices in contemporary independent genre cinema, but while The Sacrament is undeniably horrific, it is not a horror film. Rather, it’s an unflinching portrait of corrupted idealism and unchecked fanaticism that will not be easily forgotten.
