1.0 out of 5 stars True heresy committed to film, 20 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Heretic (DVD)
Normally, I try to find something positive to say about a film. Plus, I like to give ‘home-grown’ (British) films a chance. They don’t often have the budgets or stars that their Hollywood counterparts often do. But, if the quality of a film was based on its budget, then Michael Bay would have won every Oscar ever.

Unfortunately, ‘Heretic’ is basically only slightly better than your average student film. It was made for a mere (in film terms) £30,000 and it shows.

I watch a lot of horror films and I don’t expect Oscar-worthy performances, but the acting here is terrible. No, it’s worse than terrible. It really is some of the worst performances ever committed to film. It’s like no one here is an actor and everyone is just a friend who offered to ‘help out’ by ‘starring’ in this low budget flick.

Basically, if it was simply not scary that would be one thing. However, seeing as it’s not scary AND pathetically acted then you really want to steer well clear of this abomination. There really isn’t anything good to say about it. If you read any ‘Five star’ reviews then I’ll put money on them being written by friends of the film-makers.
