First look at the acclaimed horror, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival.


Every year it seems like there's a horror movie that receives rave reviews on its debut at the Sundance Film Festival, and this year the genre movie that caught critics' attention was director Natalie Erika James' Australian chiller Relic.

The film stars Emily Mortimer and Bella Heathcote as a mother and daughter who find themselves coming to the realisation that sinister forces may be at play in the home of their mother/grandmother (Robyn Nevin).

Relic is in US cinemas and on on VOD July 10th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the first trailer, poster and official synopsis below.

The official synopsis reads:

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.
