{Trailer} The ‘Relic’ Offers Something Old Something New

IFC Midnight has a long history of nabbing fantastic, edgy, and smart independent horror. The latest from IFC Midnight is Sundance darling Relic. It promises to be in the same vein of the subtext laden Hereditary, The Lodge, or Midsommar. I didn’t love The Lodge, but I trust IFC Midnight. Add this to our list of things to get excited about it. The Full Plot Synopsis is below. Relic hits VOD July 10th (and hopefully some REAL theatres as well).

Synopsis: 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.
