The Sect ★★★½

This bizarre and nightmarish third feature from Italian director Michele Soavi may lack originality, but it has enough style, atmosphere, and intensity to make up for this tenfold. With a script co-written by Dario Argento, Soavi takes the visual artistry of an Argento film and adds his own distinct touches to the affair with masterful direction and unforgettable visuals. It lacks some exposition and character development, but The Sect is one hell of a stunning and creepy film that deserves a much larger audience.
