Dir. Romola Garai. 2020, 99 mins. With Carla Juri, Alec Secareanu, Imelda Staunton, Angeliki Papoulia. In her feature directorial debut, actor Romola Garai fashions an original ghost story of claustrophobic horror. Tomaz (Secareanu), a former soldier left homeless after an accident, takes refuge in the decaying home of Magda (Juri), a lonely young woman in desperate need of help as she cares for her ailing mother. Hesitant at first, Magda soon welcomes Tomaz into their lives. But as he gets closer to Magda and begins to fall for her, Tomaz notices strange, unexplainable phenomena, and begins to suspect that Magda may be a prisoner to the otherworldly bidding of the mysterious old woman upstairs. A Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing release. View trailer.
“Powerful, attaining the strength of ancient folklore about vengeance and justice, but doing so in a way that feels cinematically modern.” —Brian Tallerico, Rogerebert.com
