The Convent aka Heretiks, is a new film from Director Paul Hyett. In a darker age, superstition overrules common sense and faith tested to its limit. Amid such darkness, the currency is fear and suspicion. At the heart of our story is a young woman, Persephone. Her past is a mystery that we feel compelled to discover. Her present, in contrast, cannot be clearer as we find Persephone accused of the murder of her master and mistress; her apparently devoted employers and protectors. Surely only supernatural forces in this age of extreme darkness could have created such a desperately sad scene.
