Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment, the people behind Bite (2016) and Bed of the Dead (2016), have announced their latest film offering, The Heretics. The film is directed by Bite director/co-writer Chad Archibald, written by Bite co-writer Jayme Laforest, and lensed by Jeff Maher, director/co-writer of Bed of the Dead.
The premise sounds pretty promising:
The Heretics features a young girl who is abducted by a man, after he claims that a cult is hunting her. His goal is to protect her until sunrise but while restrained, the young girl falls deathly ill. While her friends and family search for her, the source of her illness becomes more and more apparent. She’s not sick…she’s changing.
The Heretics sounds like it could be a fun mashup of an evil cult film with a psychological thriller. There are even some possible hints of a creature feature/body horror aspect being involved.
We’ve reviewed a couple of Black Fawn Films’ recent pictures on the site previously. The Black Saint was a little underwhelmed by their body horror film Bite (2016), but Doc Rotten enjoyed their killer bed movie Bed of the Dead (2016) a bit more.
