After a successful premiere at Sundance, Magnolia Pictures is set to release first time feature director Romola Garai’s possession horror Amulet this month, and we’ve got a new poster and trailer for the film which stars Carla Juri, Alec Secareanu, Imelda Staunton, and Angeliki Papoulia.
Following an accident that leaves him homeless in London, former soldier Tomaz is brought to the rotting home of Magda, 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.
Amulet is set for release on July 24th.
