Indie director/producer Jenn Wexler made her mark with her 2018 debut, THE RANGER, a horror crime caper with punk rock rebels terrorized by a deranged park ranger. We’ve waited patiently for her next feature, and now fans can applaud her return with THE SACRIFICE GAME. In a girl’s Catholic school in the ’70s, a couple of lonely misfit girls, Samantha (Madison Baines) and Clara (Georgia Acken), must spend their Christmas break in their near-deserted school with a young teacher named Rose (Chloë Levine). As they hunker down for quiet times and turkey, a group of marauding killers set on unleashing supernatural evil find themselves at the school’s gates. They force their way in, bringing mayhem, madness, and gore as they torment the innocent girls and remaining staff, but little do they know there are other forces at play, and the nastiness they inflict is just the tip of the iceberg.

Shooting in Quebec with a mostly Canadian cast and crew, Wexler, along with her co-writer and partner Sean Redlitz, penned what’s sure to be another breakout career film. As the horror escalates, Baines and Acken’s performances prove they’re tougher than they look. They go toe-to-toe with ruthless, Manson-esque villains headed by Mena Massoud, who does a 180 from his role as the lead in Disney’s ALADDIN to become the sinister, egotistical Jude, and the FEAR STREET trilogy’s Olivia Scott Welch as the alluring but brutal Maisie. We love that THE RANGER’s star Levine is back too, and look for the familiar face of AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s Gus Kenworthy as another devilish baddie. This is a true labour of love, with Massoud and Welch on the producer’s list, along with the unforgettable Heather Buckley. So strap in and place your bloody bets on the unwitting players of THE SACRIFICE GAME! – Carolyn Mauricette
