Saint Maud (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Warning… Saint Maud isn’t a film for the feint of heart.  Across its sub 90 minute run time, this unsettling horror is a unique look at mental health and belief that stays with you long after the credits role.  It’s shocking and a breath of fresh air for the British horror genre.  Morfydd Clark is fantastic in the titular role and Rose Glass, in her feature directorial debut, marks herself out as a filmmaker to watch. Saint Maud  is one of 2020’s best films.

Best Bit: The ending.  Shocking.

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream (its great but I can’t imagine watching it again!)

If You Liked this Try: His House, The Girl with All the Gifts, Swallow
