Director Jon Knautz (Robert Englund cult fave Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer) returns with a blood-curdling tale of sacrificial cults, demonic possession and ancient evil. After a young American backpacker vanishes in Europe, three journalists trace his disappearance to a mysterious Polish village. They travel there hoping to get the story, but instead find a grotesque, fog-shrouded shrine—and hostile locals hell-bent on serving up their next ritualistic human sacrifice. Praised by such prestigious fan sites as Dread Central, Bloody Disgusting and FearNet, The Shrine features rising stars Aaron Ashmore (TV’s Smallville), Meghan Heffern (The Fog) and Cindy Sampson (TV’s Supernatural).
