Genre director Ti West serves up a bloody good time in his latest film "The Sacrament," only now he's doing it through the lens of found footage horror. Watch the Red Band trailer below.

Starring indie faves Amy Seimetz and Joe Swanberg -- who appeared together last year in the horror film "You're Next," also starring West -- and Kate Lyn Sheil, the film revolves around a pack of Vice documentary filmmakers who head to Eden Parish, a remote, hush-hush religious sect helmed by a charismatic leader and involved in a very dark, murderous underbelly.

Creepy icon worshippers are all the rage these days in the horror realm, from HBO's "True Detective" to the standout short in the mumble-horror compilation "V/H/S 2." Though the found footage genre has been tilled, tried and true, West ought to breathe new life into this dilapidated set of films that includes the ghastly "Paranormal Activity" franchise and January's ugh-inducing "Devil's Due." 

West brilliantly directed "House of the Devil," "The Innkeepers" and a segment in "The ABCs of Death" -- here's hoping he saves the day for horror fans. "The Sacrament" hits theaters May 1.
