With a trailer coming in a few hours, Magnet Releasing shared this awesome eye-catching poster for Amulet, which gives homage to the Amulet of Pazuzu used as the catalyst in William Friedkin’s The Exorcist.
The film world premiered to critical and audience acclaim in the Midnight section at Sundance. Meagan Navarro reviewed Amulet, writing that the film “sleepwalks through philosophical horror until (an) audacious finale.”
“Amulet follows Tomaz (Alec Secareanu), a former soldier who is left homeless after an accident and takes refuge in the decaying home of Magda (Carla Juri), a lonely young woman in desperate need of help as she cares for her ailing mother. At first hesitant, Magda soon welcomes Tomaz into their lives. But as he gets closer to and begins to fall for Magda, Tomaz notices strange and unexplainable phenomena. Something seems very wrong with the mysterious old woman who never leaves the top floor, and Tomaz begins to suspect that Magda may in fact be a prisoner to her otherworldly bidding.”
The feature directorial debut of actress-turned-filmmaker Romola Garai is set for release in theaters and on demand July 24.
