Magnet Releasing has issued a new preview for its supernatural chiller that promises a truly unnerving experience.
AMULET, written and directed by actress-turned-filmmaker Romola Garai (THE LAST DAYS ON MARS, BORN TO KILL), will hit theaters and VOD July 24. Carla Juri, Alec Secareanu, Imelda Staunton and Angeliki Papoulia star; the synopsis: “Following an accident that leaves him homeless in London, former soldier Tomaz [Secareanu] is brought to the rotting home of Magda [Juri], 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.”
