OWA has just locked our final Orbiter Screening of the year and in honor of the October date, its terrifying. From Black Fawn Films, the Canadian madness machine behind BITE, ANTISOCIAL, and last year’s fest hit BED OF THE DEAD comes the US Premiere (!!!) THE HERETICS, tense horror film involving kidnaping, cults and questionable romance.
In the film, A notorious cult kidnaps a young girl and sacrifices themselves by the light of the locust moon. The next morning the girl awakes, caked in dried blood and surrounded by corpses but safe – or so she thinks.
Years later, the locust moon is about to rise again, and the girl is captured once more by a surviving member of the cult. She is taken to a remote cabin, where she learns that a demon has been growing inside of her all these years, and before the dawn it will rise.
Her only hope for survial might be her girlfriend, a woman desperately searching for her with a ferocity that makes any sane person question her motivations.
THE HERETICS director Chad Archibald will be in attendance at the October 18th screening with Producer Cody Callahan, both principals in Black Fawn Films, a company fast on the rise int he horror world.
