From the director of
Hannah Arterton (Netflix’s Safe), Michael Ironside (Turbo Kid, Total Recall, Starship Troopers, Scanners), Clare Higgins (Hellraiser I&II, Ready Player One)
“The film is blessed with the perfect setting for a horror film. A large brooding stone building, lit only with candles to provide plenty of dark corners and menacing shadows. It’s almost a character in its own right at times. Needless to say, this allows for some excellent jump scares as well as suspense. Especially in the final act when all hell starts to break loose.”
VOICES FROM THE BALCONY
"An impressively original idea, loaded with the kind of historical accuracy that makes it a frightening prospect regardless of supernatural leanings, it’s enlivened by a strong central performance and plenty of frights."
"There is a super effective jump scare and the atmosphere is suitably broody and it is refreshing to watch a film that is not afraid to be nothing more than an entertaining romp.
Heretiks is a bloody period possession drama that will delight fans of both extreme nun on nun violence and habitual eyeball harvesting."
