One of these days, someone will make a full Cthulu movie. In the meantime, we’ll settle for stories that are similar to the cults of Cthulu on the horror screen.
In Sacrifice, the movie blends the elements of Lovecraft and The Wicker Man into one terrifying story of a couple being haunted by a dream creature and a cult in town.
The film stars Barbara Crampton, Dag Soflie, Erik Lundin, Jack Kristiansen, Johanna Adde Dahl, Ludovic Hughes, Lukas Loughran, and Sophie Stevens. Andy Collier and Tor Mian directed the film based on Paul Kane’s short story “Men of The Cloth.”
Here’s the official short synopsis:
New Yorker Isaac and his pregnant wife return to a remote Norwegian village of his birth to claim an unexpected inheritance. Here they find themselves caught in a nightmare as an ancient evil awakens to claim a birthright of its own.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta chatted with directors Andy Collier and Tor Mian. We talked about filming in Norway, The Wicker Man influences, filming in the water, tentacles, and why we can’t get a proper Cthulu movie.
The directing team of Andy Collier and Tor Mian started with horror mystery Charismata in 2017. Sacrifice is their sophomore film together. They are re-teaming up again for the action film Perpetual. Collier had a couple of short films under his belt with The Seventeenth Kind (Mian as the writer), and Fairytale. For Mian, other films he directed included The Milky Way, The Sky in Bloom, and the short film Helena.
Sacrifice opens in select theaters tomorrow, February 5, then available On Demand on February 9, and released on Blu-ray on February 23.
