“MY FAVORITE HORROR MOVIE OF THIS YEAR’S SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL . . . TERRIFYING . . . a stylish, eerie project that turns the haunted house story on its head.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

Here is your first look at RELIC, writer/director Natalie Erika James’ unforgettable and auspicious feature debut. In theaters and on demand July 10th. 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. 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. RELIC had its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival to critical acclaim, praising the film as a fresh and terrifying twist on the notorious haunted-house tale.
