It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

“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

Chillingly effective . . . Strong central performances from Emily Mortimer, Robyn Nevin and Bella Heathcote.” – Wendy Ide, Screen International

“A remarkable feat . . . unnerves, shocks, and emotionally devastates with bone-chilling ease.” – Meagan Navarro, Bloody-Disgusting

IFC Midnight invites you to preview RELIC, writer/director Natalie Erika James’ unforgettable and auspicious feature debut. 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.  RELIC had its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2019 to critical acclaim, praising the film as a fresh and terrifying twist on the notorious haunted-house tale.
