THE HERETICS ARE COMING HOME!
A71 Entertainment & Black Fawn Distribution Set to Release The Heretics This Fall
“The Heretics, has perfected the multi-sub-genre model and delivers one hell of a fun time while doing it”
– Kelly McNeely, iHorror.com
“…a film that not only deserves your time – it demands it.”

Black Fawn Distribution and A71 Entertainment are set to bring the cult-horror film THE HERETICS to Canadian home video on Tuesday, September 18th, 2018.
THE HERETICS tells the pagan tale of Gloria, a young girl who is abducted by a troubled man who claims that a cult is hunting her down. His goal is to protect her until sunrise but, while restrained, Gloria falls deathly ill. While her friends and family desperately search for her, the source of her illness becomes more apparent. She’s not sick… she’s changing.
THE HERETICS is produced by Black Fawn Films & Breakthrough Entertainment, the team behind breakaway genre hits such as LET HER OUT, BITE, THE DROWNSMAN and ANTISOCIAL. THE HERETICS took the festival circuit by storm with its world premiere at Toronto’s Canadian Film Fest before screening at SITGES (Spain), Hardline Film Festival (Germany), South African HorrorFest (South Africa), Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (South Korea) and Lund International Fantastic Film Festival (Sweden). Part body-horror and part cabin-in-the-woods thriller, THE HERETICS adds to Archibald’s legacy of well crafted horror films featuring tightly wound tension and practical special effects.
“We travelled to festivals all over the world with “The Heretics” and we couldn’t be more excited to bring this film home this September,” states director Chad Archibald. “We’ve got a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack locked and loaded with special features specially designed by the creative teams at Black Fawn Distribution and A71.”
The Blu-Ray/DVD release will feature Director and Producer commentary, Behind the Scenes Featurette, an inside look at THE HERETICS’ European Festival Tour and more. As part of the home video release, Black Fawn Distribution will also be offering an exclusive THE HERETICS BLACKLIST PACKAGE which will include signed copies of THE HERETICS on Blu- Ray/DVD, mini lobby cards, on screen props from the film, cast autographs, a “Summon Your Own Demon” kit and more.
