A young woman realizes that her life in a secluded cult could be more of a restricted hell than a freeing existence in Malgorzata Szumowska's The Other Lamb. With the film coming out this April from IFC Films, we've been provided with a new clip in which cult leader Shepherd (Michiel Huisman) speaks of sacrifice to his many wives before leading them in a bloody prayer.

Directed by Malgorzata Szumowska from a screenplay by C.S. McMullen, The Other Lamb stars Michiel Huisman, Raffey Cassidy, Denise Gough, Kelly Campbell, Eve Connolly, and Isabelle Connolly.

You can watch the new clip below (which originally premiered on Bloody  Disgusting), and keep an eye out for The Other Lamb when it's released in select cinemas (this could be subject to change due to the coronavirus), VOD, and digital platforms on April 3rd via IFC Films.

Synopsis: "For her entire life, the cult she was born into has been all that teenage Selah (Raffey Cassidy) has known. Along with a band of similarly cloistered young women she lives seemingly unstuck in time, cut off from modern society in a remote forest commune presided over by a man called Shepherd (Michiel Huisman), a controlling, messiah-like figure with a frightening dark side. But when her insular world is rocked by a series of nightmarish visions and disturbing revelations, Selah begins to question everything about her existence—including her allegiance to the increasingly dangerous Shepherd. Awash in images of primal, dreamlike dread, this provocative fable is a haunting vision of adolescent awakening and revolt."
