The promise of the divine is but an illusion. From Gareth Evans, writer and director of THE RAID franchise, comes APOSTLE, a Netflix film starring Dan Stevens as drifter on a dangerous mission to rescue his kidnapped sister who tangles with a sinister religious cult on an isolated island.
London, 1905. Prodigal son Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) has returned home, only to learn that his sister is being held for ransom by a religious cult. Determined to get her back at any cost, Thomas travels to the idyllic island where the cult lives under the leadership of the charismatic Prophet Malcolm (Michael Sheen). As Thomas infiltrates the island’s community, he learns that the corruption of mainland society that they claim to reject has infested the cult’s ranks nonetheless – and uncovers a secret far more evil than he could have imagined. Written and directed by Gareth Evans (‘The Raid’), APOSTLE is a harrowing occult fable where the only thing more horrifying than madness is the sinister reality behind it.
APOSTLE premieres exclusively on Netflix on October 12th.
