Apostle is being released by XYZ Films, the same company responsible for The Raid, and on their website there is a synopsis for the film:

The year is 1905. Thomas Richardson travels to a remote island to rescue his sister after she’s kidnapped by a mysterious religious cult demanding a ransom for her safe return. It soon becomes clear that the cult will regret the day it baited this man, as he digs deeper and deeper into the secrets and lies upon which the commune is built.

The Apostle was recently picked up by Netflix and is should be released some time in 2018.
