After acquiring the film out of Sundance, Magnet Releasing has unleashed the official trailer for actress-turned-filmmaker Romola Garai's Amulet, which will be released in theaters and on demand July 24th, 2020.
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.
Imelda Staunton (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Harry Potter franchise) and Angeliki Papoulia (The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea) also star.
Written and directed by Garai, who makes her feature debut, Amulet looks like a perfect companion to two other possession/supernatural films releasing over the next month, Natalie Erika James' Relic and Rose Glass' Saint Maud.
