The Acolyte

Acolyte 1

Screens before the feature film All My Friends Hate Me.

A new recruit clashes with a clan of cultists determined to set off the apocalypse. Inspired equally by the Marx Brothers and H.P. Lovecraft, The Acolyte aims to depict a victory of the optimist over the cynic – the battle we each wage in real life.
