Your Saviour is coming, finally a UK Trailer for Saint Maud. Rose Glass directorial feature debut is nearly upon us. Studiocanal‘s promo unearth the unholy terror ahead of the film’s latest Festival appearances.
Religion and psychological horror clash as Morfydd Clark stars as Nurse Maud. She assigned to work with a frail, ill famous dancer Amanda (Jennifer Ehle). Becoming obsessed with her patient, to a point thinking she maybe possessed.
In the states the film is released by A24, which gave us The VVitch, Hereditary, Midsommar. One can only be excited especially when you’re a genre fan. Take a big slice of The Exorcist, a dash of Repulsion and a pinch of Arthouse sensibilities, you get this…
Live-in nurse Maud (Morfydd Clark) arrives at the home of Amanda (Jennifer Ehle), a famous dancer now frail from illness and trapped in her grand, isolated house. At first Amanda is intrigued by this religious young woman, who provides distraction from her failing health. Maud, in turn, is bewitched by her new patient. But Maud is not all that she seems. She is tormented by a violent secret from her past and by ecstatic messages she believes are directly from God. She becomes convinced she has been sent to Amanda not simply as a nurse, but to serve a divine purpose. As her grip on reality slides out of control, Maud’s care turns into a deadly mission to save Amanda’s soul, by any means necessary.
Rising star Morfydd Clark and BAFTA and Tony Award-winner Jennifer Ehle come together in this electrifying psychological horror from debut writer/director and Screen ‘Star of Tomorrow’ Rose Glass.
The film will also stars Lilly Frazer, Lily Knight, Marcus Hutton, Turlough Convery, and Rosie Sansom.
Saint Maud is set for an UK &Irish Cinema release on 1st May. However the film will make it’s Irish premiere at Dublin Film Festival tonight 2nd March. On Friday 7th March you can see the film at Glasgow Film Festival on the FrightFest Strand.
