Signature Entertainment To Release Psychological Horror RELIC in January 2021





A deeply unsettling psychological horror, Relic is the unforgettable debut feature from writer and director Natalie Erika James who brings a fresh and profoundly human twist to the genre.

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 behaviour turns increasingly volatile, both begin to sense that an insidious presence in the house might be taking control of her…

Following its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Relic screened to wide acclaim at BFI London Film Festival 2020. Directed by Natalie Erika James, the film features unforgettable performances from Emily Mortimer (Mary Poppins the Returns, The Party & Shutter Island), Robyn Nevin (The Matrix, Top of the Lake), and Bella Heathcote (The Neon Demon, Dark Shadows).

RELIC releases in the UK on digital HD on 8th January 2021 followed by DVD and Blu-Ray on 18th January 2021.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Dead Island, Yakuza Zero and Payday 2.
