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.”

Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …

SONG OF SOLOMON Review

Exorcism films do not begin and end with William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST. With entries as varied as BEETLEJUICE, CONSTANTINE, and THE RITE, the exorcism sub-genre of horror films is far more diverse than many immediately recognize.  

With THE SONG OF SOLOMON director Stephen Brio has added a unique take on the possession movie. In his film, the Catholic church attempts to save the soul of Mary (Jessica Cameron) who appears to have been possessed after witnessing her father's brutal suicide.

Mary is off camera while her father takes his own life. In a scene that could play as a confessional or an accusation, the family's patriarch lists off the reasons why he is being forced to use his knife on Mary and himself. He details how they were a good, loving family and he can't understand why she is accusing him of abuse. Using demonic control as a metaphor for trauma survival is something so natural, I can't believe it's not woven into every film of this kind.
