When elderly mother Edna inexplicably vanishes, her daughter Kay and granddaughter Sam rush to their family's decaying country home, finding clues of her increasing dementia scattered around the house in her absence. After Edna returns just as mysteriously as she disappeared, Kay's concern that her mother seems unwilling or unable to say where she's been clashes with Sam's unabashed enthusiasm to have her grandma back. As Edna's behavior turns increasingly volatile, both begin to sense that an insidious presence in the house might be taking control of her. With RELIC, first-time writer/director Natalie Erika James crafts an unforgettable new spin on the haunted-house movie.Written by

On my list forever, disappointed. Not horror, family drama
So my problem with this film isn't the film itself. But the fact that this is labeled and marketed as a full blown horror movie, this is more of a family drama. This was on my watchlist for a little while. It was hyped as one of the best horror movies of the year!!! I'm thinking wow, just like they said about Hereditary. I saw that at the very beginning of the buzz and absolutely loved it. Critics were right about that movie! I thought this would be the next Hereditary with the familial and horror connections. But the horror elements were symbolic only. Which is fine for some but in my opinion, not enough to be classified as a full blown horror movie. I needed more direct horror and jump scares, story, etc. All of the actors are great! Love Emily Mortimer. Just not what I hoped for!
