"Relic" is the feel-dread movie of the year.

February 16, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The debut feature from writer-director Natalie Erika James functions as both an allegory and a nightmarish descent into this year's creepiest movie home.

February 16, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The more grotesque its imagery, the more tender its twists.

November 18, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's that slow creep that lies at the heart of Natalie Erika James's debut film. Co-written with author Christian White, her debut is the richest, most satisfying brand of chiller there is.

November 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/5

It helps that the cast are on especially sharp form, never once patronise the material as a pulp genre piece.

November 1, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I'd wager that this spine-tingling, heartbreaking tale of a woman with Alzheimer's becoming lost in the labyrinthine corridors of her mind, and her home, has a universal power that will resonate with anyone, regardless of personal experience.
