New Trailer and Stateside Release Date for Jon Knautz’s The Shrine

I’m curious about Jon Knautz’s 2010 horror flick “The Shrine”, his follow-up to 2007’s surprisingly entertaining splatter/horror comedy “Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer”. The film stars Cindy Sampson of “Supernatural” fame, so that’s a plus. IFC Midnight has the film set to debut on demand via Comcast, Cox, Cablevision, Time Warner, and Bright House starting July 15th. Take a gander at the new trailer and a poster below.

After a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote village in Poland. They travel there hoping to get the story, but as they unravel the secrets behind this mysterious village, they are suddenly pursued by hostile locals. Unable to escape, they soon become the next victims of ritualistic human sacrifice. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalists will discover that this village hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine.

Starring Aaron Ashmore, Cindy Sampson, Meghan Heffern, and Trevor Matthews.
