CULT KILLERS ARRIVE AT THE DOORSTEP OF A BOARDING SCHOOL DURING THE HOLIDAYS
With nowhere to go for winter break, Samantha and Clara must spend the season at their snowy boarding school. Unbeknownst to them, the building is the endpoint of a series of demonic sacrifices, and the two students are the only ones left to put a stop to the summoning ceremony before it’s too late.
With a little bit of HOME ALONE, a little bit of teen angst, and a lot of grisly murder, THE SACRIFICE GAME examines 1970s disillusionment as a feminist coming-of-age tale with plenty of haunts and kills along the way. As the ritual creeps closer, the girls must confront the dangerous cult and the numerous ways their guardians and institutions have failed to protect them from patriarchal control. – Austin King
