Horror fans are likely to appreciate A24 these days. The company had brought is a plethora of fantastic movies in the last decade: The Lighthouse, Midsommar, Hereditary, It Comes At Night, A Ghost Story, The Witch, In Fabric, Ex Machina, Green Room - even Tusk and Life After Beth.
That's a hell of a resume. Their newest horror offering, Saint Maud, opens April 1st and to prepare audiences, special screenings of horror classics with female leads will be held each Friday before, starting this Friday the 13th at select AMC theaters.
There are your Friday night plans for the rest of the month. Easy!
About the movie: Maud is a reclusive young nurse whose impressionable demeanor causes her to pursue a pious path of Christian devotion after an obscure trauma. Now charged with the hospice care of Amanda, a retired dancer ravaged by cancer, Maud's fervent faith quickly inspires an obsessive conviction that she must save her ward's soul from eternal damnation, whatever the cost.
Saint Maud already has a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Here are just a few reviews:
"Saint Maud is a strange, gorgeous, and deeply disturbing chiller which mixes psychological, religious, and body horror to form something that feels utterly original." - Den of Geek
"Saint Maud, like Ari Aster's Midsommar, is a law unto itself." - London Evening Standard
"There was a moment where the theater collectively gasped - you"ll know it when you see it - and that kind of terror is all too rare." - Brightest Young Things
