Very dull story of an unscrupulous art dealer
12 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

HERETIC is a very dull and uneventful story from season three of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE, a story that seems to have been hastily written with a historical basis that doesn't really integrate the history with the actual narrative.

In it, an unscrupulous art dealer finds himself on trial for fencing a stolen 16th century painting. His life is literally at stake and he must fight to survive in a court where the odds are stacked against him. Again this has an annoyingly jokey feel to it, and some decidedly poor acting which limits the viewer's enjoyment. It's a definite step down from previous stories.
