From director Paul Hyett (Howl) comes Heretiks and it looks like another immensely satisfying thrill ride! The film will have its World Premiere at FrightFest in London on August 25th. I highly recommend that you give the trailer below a watch!
“In the early 17th century, innocent young Persephone is falsely accused and put on trial for her life. Her fate seems sealed except for the timely intervention of the mysterious Reverend Mother offering her not just sanctuary, but hope. For the Reverend Mother is the self-appointed leader of a small religious retreat, a secluded Priory, where her fellow Sisters devote their lives to the Lord and seek atonement for their pasts. But upon arrival, Persephone is plagued with terrifying visions and soon realizes that it’s not salvation that awaits but a battle for her very soul itself.”
Hyett co-wrote the script with Conal Palmer. Heretiks stars Michael Ironside (Total Recall), Clare Higgins (Hellraiser) and Hannah Arterton (Walking On Sunshine).
