Its always nice when a horror film comes out of nowhere and threatens to become one of the scariest rides of the year and RELIC is whispered to be the next big thing.
The feature debut by writer and director Natalie Erika James, is already gaining massive critical acclaim and horror fans are eagerly awaiting its release on July 10th, in which it will be available in selected cinemas and on VOD.
Here is the synopsis and teaser trailer:
When elderly mother Edna (Robyn Nevin) inexplicably vanishes, her daughter Kay (Emily Mortimer) and granddaughter Sam (Bella Heathcote) rush to their family’s decaying country home, finding clues of her increasing dementia scattered around the house in her absence. After Edna returns just as mysteriously as she disappeared, Kay’s concern that her mother seems unwilling or unable to say where she’s been clashes with Sam’s unabashed enthusiasm to have her grandma back. As Edna’s behavior turns increasingly volatile, both begin to sense that an insidious presence in the house might be taking control of her. All three generations of women are brought together through trauma and a powerful sense of strength and loyalty to face the ultimate fear together.
