Mod Scientists Ltd. today proudly release the first teaser trailers for their horror movie, Heretic.
Shot for just £18,000, using locally-sourced cast and crew, Heretic is destined for cinema screens despite its incredibly low budget. From inception Heretic was created to compete with big-budget Hollywood movies at the box office, and prove that money does not matter in the creation of thrilling, financially successful cinema.
Heretic is the chilling tale of Father James Pallister, a Priest who fails to accept responsibility for the death of a teenage girl in his Parish and is subsequently trapped and tormented by those he should have saved. Rather than relying on the violence and gore present in recent horror films, Heretic modernises the scares and visuals of classic horrors of the 1960s. Using the same technique these films employed, the true horror in Heretic is either masked in shadow or takes place off-screen, making it all the more terrifying for an audience who draw on their own worse fears to fill in the blanks. This allows the film to be low budget, contemporary and stomach-clenchingly tense.
