Movie Info

Following an accident that leaves him homeless in London, former soldier Tomaz 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.

  • Smart and stylish, with fun detours into lurid excess.

    June 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Unafraid to turn into a true phantasmagoria, Garai's filmmaking hints at a director whose tastes skew away from your typical horror movie construction.

    January 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • More adventurous types will grok the distinctive vision on display in this split-level narrative of terrors bred by both war and more unearthly evils.

  • It's an impressive first feature, and while fans of zippy midnight movies might balk at its slow-burn opening act, the film eventually builds to some nutso body horror and a strong sense of mythology that announces Garai's arrival as a filmmaker to watch.

  • I absolutely loved just how wickedly weird things get in Amulet once the story gets fully amped up, and I think Garai shows a lot of promise here as a director who isn't interested in just giving us the same ol' horror-centric song and dance.

    March 2, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Actress turned writer-director Romola Garai has visual flair and an impeccable taste in European actors, but the screenplay of her feature debut, Amulet, leaves much to be desired.
