From acclaimed writer/director Ti West (The Innkeepers, The House of the Devil) and producer Eli Roth (Hostel) comes the story of two Vice Media correspondents on an adventure to document their friend’s journey to reunite with his estranged sister (Amy Seimetz, Upstream Color). They track her to an undisclosed location where they are welcomed into the remote world of “Eden Parish,” a self-sustained rural utopia composed of nearly two hundred members and overseen by a mysterious leader known only as “Father”. While they are initially inspired by the community, it soon becomes evident that something is rotten in paradise. As their one night in the parish turns to day, the visitors realize that Eden Parish harbors a twisted secret. What started as just another documentary shoot soon becomes a fight for escape and survival.
