Heretics (Feature - 1hr 27 min)
A notorious cult kidnaps a young girl, and sacrifice 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. 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.

Scraps (short film)
Directed by Christopher Giroux (Dead All Night) a prominent producer in the independent horror film scene (Bite, Bed of the Dead and Let Her Out), SCRAPS echoes the mid-90s VHS era of horror movie making; when films such as The Faculty, I Know What You Did Last Summer and Distributing Behaviour were released. A time when youth had secrets that lead to murderous outcomes.
