Apostle (2018): Drama / Fantasy / Horror

Apostle.jpg

Brutal. Gory. Bloody. Savage. Relentless. “Apostle”… “The Witch” meets “The Wicker Man” – the 1973 one #justsaying.

Dan Stevens delivers an amazing performance being tough as nails and broken at the same time. Michael Sheen (who speaks in his Welsh accent – rare) on the other hand, nails it as a false prophet, ostensibly stalwart leader but torn deep down, bearing the consequences of his (im)moral choices. Last but not least, writer/editor/director Gareth Evans uses the lens as he only knows how to, and brings to life a H. P. Lovecraft-esque mysticism and fantastical horror world for us to get lost in it.

Welcome to the island…
