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.




  • Ambiguous nightmare fuel!

    By JacobDude
    I haven’t had a nightmare for many years and this film gave me hardcore nightmares. The film itself feels very nightmarish, feels real but unreal, it isn’t too over the top and leaves you wondering what it was you just saw. I love it!
  • Slow and doesn’t make sense

    By bilzarkz
    I wasted 99cents and 1.5 hours on this. It may have been worth it for 25cents. The only good thing was seeing Jake Gyllenhaal’s picture on my tv screen as a producer on the “cast & crew” option.
  • Huh?

    By palangibrad
    I’m glad the rental on this was only.99c+tax... NOT a horror movie...
  • Instead of “Relic” title should be “Really Ick”

    By Amazin'Spiderfan
    so??? Was this movie made for those who require slow plots?? Or possibly “NO” plots??? I thought when I saw “Paranormal WASTE OF Activity”, that it was one of the SLOWEST, WORST, ??Horror???(can this or it truly be called Horror when the ONLY SCARY part is the fact that you’re “STILL WATCHING IT an Hour and a Half LATER?!?!?!?!?!?!’....... *Yaaaaaaawwwwnnnnnn... THIS IS TERRIBLE!!!!! ONLY WATCH IF SCARY MOVIES “REALLY” FRIGHTEN YOU BECAUSE AFTER YOU’VE FINISHED WATCHING “Relic”, YOU CAN NOW TELL EVERYONE YOU’VE WATCHED A “?SCARY?” MOVIE.......... The only saving grace is that at least all 3 women were at least attractive enough to tolerate.... OH...... ONE FINAL QUESTION... The Daughter puts Mom in the Tub after she urinates on the floor, and she couldn’t see all the black gunk all over her chest, breasts, shoulders, etc...????? *TRUST ME WHEN I TELL YOU THIS...... *”RUN!!!!!!!”. AAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!

    Looking for a scary movie in October? This isn’t the movie. Looking to jump and generally be scared? This isn’t the movie. Want to flush 7 dollars down the came to the right place.
  • Horrible progression

    By Devil2357
    The story progresses to places that don’t make any sense. It starts off good then goes down hill half way though and then doesn’t explain anything.
  • The Relic

    I thought with Emily Mortimer in it , that it would be worth watching.... nope!
  • Just awful...

    By Jaokguy
    This film is lacking the most important ingredient in any great movie...a story. From the start to it's ambiguous and meaningless ending you feel that absolutely nothing has happened. Some of the poorest writing and directing I've ever seen. Although it all starts with the story. A director can only do so much with such an awful script. And I'm reading that this film had some sort of hype at first. That's more laughable than the film itself. Somebody was comparing it to Hereditary, which is impossible, Those two films aren't even in the same league. One immense stink bomb...

    This movie was a huge disappointment!
  • Surreal

    By Amaguq
    Those that have a one star review only have one brain cell. This movie is poignant and had me bawling my eyes out by the end. The gran actually has Alzheimer's and it accelerates as the movie progresses and by the end she is essentially dying from this disease. This is the debut film of the director Natalie Erika James who's own grandmother had Alzheimer's.
