Heretic was created with a very simple philosophy: to produce and complete a disturbing, cinematic ghost story for just £30,000.

We wanted to craft an entertaining and thought-provoking work of art that, at a fraction of the cost of many other productions, would lower the financial risk, allow us to work independently and allow us to make a profit quickly from the movie.

Fast forward two years and has this been achieved?

Well, there has literally been blood, sweat and tears but the simple answer is….yes.

Heretic was completed at the end of October and had its world premiere at the Leeds International Film Festival to a sell-out crowd and an overwhelmingly positive response..

So now we are on the final steps of our Heretic journey – agreeing a distribution deal and releasing the movie to the world at large. It has been a long and sometimes arduous journey but one that has ultimately been massively fulfilling for us and everyone involved in the production. To produce, film, edit and complete a movie in under two years for under £30,000 is a nigh on impossible task. But to have done so and also produced a film of the standard and quality of Heretic is nothing short of a miracle and there can only be bigger and better things to come for both the movie and Mod Scientists.
