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.Movies about weird cults are a favourite horror genre niche of mine. I think it's the gamer in me always looking for inspiration on the back of a lifetime of Lovecraft reading, so The Heretics certainly ticks that box for me.
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.
This is one I'll be keeping an eye for, possibly as a candidate for a DVD night with my fellow horror fan, Paul.
