THE HERETICS, the latest chiller from prolific Canadian fright factory Black Fawn Films, is headed for U.S. release later this year. Read on for the info and an exclusive first look at the new trailer and poster.

Uncork’d Entertainment releases THE HERETICS on VOD November 6 and DVD January 5. Directed by Black Fawn co-founder Chad Archibald from a script by Jayme Laforest (who also penned Archibald’s previous BITE), it stars Nina Kiri, Ry Barrett, Jorja Cadence, Will King and Nina Richmond. The synopsis: “A young woman [Kiri] is abducted by a strange man [Barrett] who claims that a cult is hunting her. His goal is to protect her until sunrise but while restrained, she falls deathly ill. As her friends and family search for her, the source of her illness becomes more and more apparent. She’s not sick…she’s changing.”
