Here’s an oddball movie among the filmography of Gareth Evans (The Raid, Gangs of London, etc.). Instead of the action he’s known for, this is full-on horror. Apostle has been rightly compared to the original The Wicker Man (no, not the Nicholas Cage one), but the difference here is that the end of the movie is violent and gory as all hell. The one flaw is that it takes some investment of patience to get to the bloody conclusion (Evans does like to make complicated plots). I say it’s 100% worth the effort. Since this movie is streaming, there’s no need to watch it in one viewing. I did, but you don’t have to.
Not available on Blu-ray.
