Psychological horror Saint Maud is already looking like one of the must-see films of the year – and it’s now heading our way in October.

Off the back of its festival appearances, acclaim for the movie Saint Maud is already sky-high. The movie is the directorial debut of Rose Glass, and her film is now on its way to UK cinemas this autumn. The movie had originally been set for the spring, but for fairly obvious reasons that wasn’t possible. But credit to StudioCanal – it’s held firm on a cinema release for this one. The movie will now get its UK release on October 23rd.

It stars Morfydd Clark and Jennifer Ehle, in a story that was also penned by Glass. And here’s the trailer for the movie that was release in March. Take a look at that, and we’ll meet you the other side for the film’s synopsis…

And the synopsis reads as follows…

Live-in nurse Maud (Morfydd Clark) arrives at the home of Amanda (Jennifer Ehle), a famous dancer now frail from illness and trapped in her grand, isolated house. At first Amanda is intrigued by this religious young woman, who provides distraction from her failing health. Maud, in turn, is bewitched by her new patient. But Maud is not all that she seems. She is tormented by a violent secret from her past and by ecstatic messages she believes are directly from God. She becomes convinced she has been sent to Amanda not simply as a nurse, but to serve a divine purpose. As her grip on reality slides out of control, Maud’s care turns into a deadly mission to save Amanda’s soul, by any means necessary.

From what we hear – we’ve not seen it ourselves yet – this one’s pretty much unmissable…
