Breakthrough Entertainment and Black Fawn Films’ Newest Feature, ‘The Heretics’, Launch Official Trailer

The official trailer for The Heretics is here; starring Nina Kiri (TV’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Let Her Out), Ry Barrett (The Drownsman, Neverlost, and The Demolisher) and, with a breakout performance from Australian new comer Jorja Cadence. The Heretics was produced by Cody Calahan, Chad Archibald and Christopher Giroux with cinematography by “Bed of the Dead” director Jeff Maher.

Director Chad Archibald said, “This film has been a journey and we’re excited to finally be sharing it with audiences across the world. This trailer kicks off a slew of exciting announcements that will be coming in the next few weeks.”

Following the success of BITE, Chad Archibald returns with writer Jayme LaForest to create a film that’s a mixture of cult possession and body-horror. The Heretics follows a young girl, Gloria who is abducted by a man, after he claims that a cult is hunting her. As Gloria begins falling ill and undergoing frightening transformations, we realize that the cult isn’t the only thing that she, or her captor needs to fear.

After a successful industry screening at the 2017 European Film Market and sold out World Premiere at The Canadian Film Fest in March, The Heretics is currently on its worldwide festival tour with a number of festivals being announced in the coming weeks. The Heretics is Black Fawn’s eighth film in the initial series of films with Breakthrough, following a recent renewed commitment for more films that will feature increased budgets and a more aggressive casting strategy. Pre-production for Archibald’s next feature entitled “I’ll Take Your Dead” has already started.

Owen Kelly, International Sales & Acquisitions Executive – Feature Films at Breakthrough Entertainment said, “After two packed screenings in Berlin and Toronto, it is exciting that the full trailer is now ready for release to mass audiences. Horror fans were treated with a teaser in March but we can build the anticipation for the film even further with this bone chilling trailer.”

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Directed By: Savannah Bloch
Starring: Tania Nolan, Rachel Crowl, Mary Holland, Karan Soni, John Kassir, and Anne Gee Byrd

Alyssa (Nolan) wakes up to find her home pillaged and her husband missing. The burglars have taken everything, down to the photos of her husband. The police offer little help so she turns to a friend of the family Eve (Crowl) for assistance. The film is less of a "who done it" and more of a "what happened."

The prolonged second act of the film focuses on the relationship between Eve and Alyssa. The suspense of the film lingers in the background while their relationship grows. In fact, clues of what is to come are clearly laid out in a way that allows the viewer to see where the film is headed before it gets there. I'm not sure if this is by design but the effect of having the stories trajectory clearly laid out gives the audience permission to accept this blossoming relationship.

Nolan and Crowl both give stunning performances that anc…


SWEET PARENTS review 2017
Directed By: David Bly
Starring: David Bly and Leah Rudick
Written By: David Bly and Leah Rudick

Moving to New York City with ambitions of making it as an artist is an uphill battle. Hell, moving to New York with ambitions of breaking into fast food is an uphill battle. Exorbitant rent makes it difficult if not impossible to get a temp job while you audition, paint, write, or sculpt. And paying $28 for an artisan PB&J not only has a heavy tax on your pocketbook, over time it can carry a greater burden on your soul. Spending tons of money to only feel like you are barely keeping your head above water is a crushing way to exist.

SWEET PARENTS is the story of a young couple who have been living the artists struggle in NYC for close to 8 years. Will has dreams of making it as a Chef and Gabby wants to become a professional sculptor. Both start side relationships, as last ditch efforts to support their careers, in what becomes a choice between ambition and lo…
