The final entry in the H E R E T I C mythos and final H E R E T I C show ever. October 2019
CREATOR ADRIAN MARCATO: "This is a very strange show that I have written and one that blends all of the shows reality and fictions into one odd encounter. Unlike the THE END this will still be one person at a time to enter I am not doing a group show. The concept starts with many different story lines colliding at the same time in one night. A man has captured a woman that is possessed by something, Actors turn their passion into a horror movie only to discover they will turn on one another during filming making it become very real, A special FX artist creates a horror experience that turns into a real person, a murdered girl comes back to life possessing a young woman, There will be horror elements including some unique ways of incorporating genre tropes such as zombies and creatures.
These are just some of the 50 different mini story lines that all collide with guests in this show. The best description I have is a very dark fucked up Robert Altman movie. There is no spoiler..everyone dies but it's what happens after that will leave guests stunned."
A Very limited amount of tickets will be available as usual with a H E R E T I C show but this time you can nominate a friend to attend with you as a character in the show.

H E R E T I C ARCHIVE
D E V I L OCTOBER 2017
As you walk into my darkness I am with you guiding you into a long hallway with bursts of light almost blinding you. The mask is a window it allows you to see things like I do. A man and a disfigured thing (male or female is unknown) walk out into the bursts of light. The man sharply dressed in a suit stands there as that thing moves around him. He seems not to notice his eyes are covered by glasses but he is staring at us. In the next instant the thing attacks dragging him into a cold dark room. A few seconds pass and the cold white light goes out and changes to a slow pace darkness is interrupted by nano seconds of light. I can see that thing coming towards us slowly then it charges and slams into you now pulling you into that room.
THE ROOM WE WORSHIP IN -
You are forced to your knees as the man who was in the hallway is quietly watching from the dark his face a black blur. This is the story of a father and his daughter. He told her about the Devil at first to scare her, then he placed a mask on her just like you. She attacked him violently mauled him torturing and killing him. Now you in his place are laid down dragged under a swinging light as it sways painting the room in a ghastly glow. The pig man behind me talks about asking his father to meet the Devil and his father taking him to the woods and leaving him alone at night to find the Devil. That thing is now hurting you but you are told "THIS IS WORSHIP" we worship those we admire and this is how they show admiration. The pain is hard and fast the father watches over his daughter then helps her as the narrator a pig masked deviant tells you "We will not kill you but show what lives inside you".
After time passes the pig guide picks up your limp body and moves you to the bright light in bursts again. You strain to listen but he says " I wanted to find others that worshiped like I did and had admired as I have. So one night in a dirty movie theater I came across a group that were just as tormented as myself."
THE THEATER OF FLESH -
You sit down in what seems like a movie theater seat surrounded by other seats. A soft low flashing light shows you a man in a hat and the others that sit around you. The pig man is watching from the window. In this place of prayer the preacher talks about soft flesh. The things in this theater surround you taking off their clothes, sweat and body heat suffocate you as they proceed to gratify themselves through your discomfort.
The pig man comes for you again, this time it is the final encounter.
AGGRESSIVE REVENGE -
The possessed woman in this room wants to tenderize your flesh make you her punching bag and devour you. The room is blue sometimes you can see other times you cannot. There are people watching there is something watching. This is where you THE DEVIL have to be pulled out for your safety. To be cleansed and purged.
