From the looks of it, thou shalt not miss this religious psychothriller.

Brainstorm Media will release THE SINNERS, the debut feature from director Courtney Paige, on VOD February 19. Previously titled THE COLOR ROSE and winner of several festival awards, the film was scripted by Paige, Erin Hazlehurst and Madison Smith and stars Kaitlyn Bernard, Brenna Coates, Brenna Llewellyn, Keilani Elizabeth Rose, Jasmine Randhawa, Carly Fawcett, Natalie Malaika, Aleks Paunovic (TV’s SNOWPIERCER and VAN HELSING), Lochlyn Munro (FREDDY VS. JASON, SCARY MOVIE), Michael Eklund (THE CALL, THE DIVIDE) and Tahmoh Penikett. The synopsis: “Seven girls from a religious high school decide to rebel by starting a cult where they embody the seven deadly sins. Grace Carver, the pastor’s daughter and most popular girl in school, discovers her friend is about to air out all of their dirty little secrets. Action must be taken. As a scare tactic, the girls kidnap Aubrey, but in the heat of an argument, she goes missing. As their friend group begins to dwindle one by one, Grace and the remaining cult members realize there’s a much darker secret behind their small town.”
