Directed by Natalie Erika James

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

When elderly mother Edna, inexplicably vanishes, her daughter Kay and granddaughter Sam rush to her decaying country home to find clues of her dementia scattered 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, they begin to sense that an insidious presence in the house might be taking control of her.
