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.

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
