SHORT SUMMARY

A notorious cult kidnaps a young girl, and sacrifice themselves by the light of the locust moon. The next morning the girl awakes, caked in dried blood and surrounded by corpses...but safe - or so she thinks. Years later, the locust moon is about to rise again and the girl is captured once more by a surviving member of the cult. She is taken to a remote cabin where she learns that a demon has been growing inside of her all these years, and before the dawn it will rise.

FULL DESCRIPTION

Black Fawn Films have been leading the pack of hard-hitting Canadian indie horror for years, and their latest film THE HERETICS is without a doubt one of their best yet -- terrifying, tender, and traumatic all at the same time.

Director Chad Archibald and screenwriter Jayme Laforest (BITE) weave a tale of satanic abduction, crazy cults, cabins in the woods, and demonic possession that is at once familiar for horror fans and something fresh and new. Anchored by top notch performances by Ry Barrett (THE DROWNSMAN) and Nina Kiri (HULU's The Handmaid's Tale), The Heretics elevates the indie horror genre with eerie cinematography, sensational set design, a haunting score, and visceral special effects all produced by local talent to deliver a surprise shocker that's creepy and contemplative with bursts of blood and guts. (Aaron Allen)
