Apostle -- October 12

Gareth Evans is best known to audiences as the filmmaker behind The Raid and The Raid 2, but with his latest movie he has taken a big turn genre-wise. After turning the world on to Indonesian action flicks, he's now ready to terrify crowds with some cult-centric horror. Dan Stevens plays the brother of a young woman being held for ransom by a violent religious faction, and sneaks on to their isolated island in hopes of rescuing her. What he discovers while he's there, however, is that what's being worshiped is definitely not the Christian god, and far more disturbing.

Apostle had its premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas last month, and it's definitely a gripping ride. There are a number of standout, heart-stopping sequences, and the cast including Dan Stevens, Michael Sheen, and Lucy Boynton are fantastic. You won't be able to catch this one in theaters, but instead will only be able to watch if you are a Netflix subscriber . Do yourself a favor and make the room as dark as possible and turn the audio all the way up. Oh, and definitely don't watch with any children around, because there are some moments that will guarantee nightmares.
