Cop Tony's (Franco Steeves) life seems to be falling apart of late after he's suspended from duty on police brutality accusations (it was self defense, but a video uploaded onto the internet suggests otherwise), his daughter Carla (Yocelyn Grin) hates him because he has prevented her from running away from California with her boyfriend (Matthew Garry) ... and then his Indian wife Sheila (Elizabeth Abraham) brings back her two small nephews (Armaan Bajpai, Aditya Krukeja) from her latest trip to India, who behave very weirdly and for most of the time pretend to not speak English ... and then Tony and Sheila learn the boys' father has been killed back in India.

Things though really get out of hand when one of the Indian boys is attacked, and later the attacker as well as Carla's boyfriends are found brutally slaughtered, obviously be the same perpetrator, and apparently this had to do with Sheila's last trip to India - and it seems that Sheila knows a lot more about what's going on than she would have her husband let on ... like that the boys are pursued by a demon (Lady India), and that demon is pretty much unstoppable. But while Tony learns this at the local police station, his children's and nephews' nanny (Jennifer Lenius) has already been possessed by the demon, and his partner (Victoria Flees) who has been left with them for protection, hasn't got the first idea what she's up against. So it's really a race against time to save the children ...


The Sacrifice is an enjoyably effective horror thriller with plenty of elements of action cinema thrown in just for good measure, all carried by a very engaging storyline that twists and turns enough to keep you guessing throughout, to then culminate in an explosive finale. And that the whole thing's decently paced with all the suspense and shocks in all the right places doesn't hurt one bit either, nor does a very decent cast.

Great genre entertainment!
