Amulet Trailer: Have faith in fear
Magnet Releasing has unveiled the first official trailer for the upcoming horror film Amulet from debuting writer/director Romola Garai centered on a former soldier who goes to help take care of a sinister old woman. The trailer can be viewed in the player below!
Written and directed by Garai, the story centers on former soldier Tomaz who, following an accident that leaves him homeless in London, is brought to the rotting home of Magda, a lonely woman in desperate need of help as she looks after her dying mother. Though at first resistant, Magda eventually welcomes him into their lives and allows him to help her care for them. But as he worms his way into their routine and begins to fall for Magda, Tomaz starts to notice strange, unexplainable, and ugly phenomena. Something seems very wrong with the mysterious old woman who never leaves the top floor, and Magda may in fact be enslaved to do her otherworldly bidding.
The cast for the film is made up of Carla Juri (Blade Runner 2049), Alec Secareanu (God’s Own Country), Imelda Staunton (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil) and Angeliki Papoulia (The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea).
Having garnered strong reviews at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the film is set to hit select theaters and VOD on July 24.
