In an exclusive revealed by Deadline, it was announced that A24 will be doing a limited theatrical release of SAINT MAUD on January 29th.
It has also been reported that the film will be released On-Demand via Epix on February 12th. So, if you are unable to catch it theatrically, you will get the chance to view it on VOD a couple weeks later!
Originally, the film was set to be released in April 2020 before COVID-19 rapidly impacted the film industry worldwide. It was initially rescheduled to be released July 17, 2020, but the virus hadn’t abated at that point and so, the film was pulled off schedule until today.
The unholy possession thriller is the first feature from writer/director Rose Glass — a stunning horror debut in the vein of Hereditary and The Witch that critics are hailing “a mesmerizing horror masterpiece” and “the next great horror film”!
The debut film from writer-director Rose Glass, SAINT MAUD is a chilling and boldly original vision of faith, madness, and salvation in a fallen world. Maud, a newly devout hospice nurse, becomes obsessed with saving her dying patient’s soul — but sinister forces, and her own sinful past, threaten to put an end to her holy calling.
The film stars Morfydd Clark (Crawl, Love & Friendship), Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty, The King’s Speech), Lily Frazer (“Sex Education”, “Ladhood”), Lily Knight (The Purge: Anarchy, Secretary), Marcus Hutton (Cycle, I’m Here), Turlough Convery (Doing Money, “Sanditon”), and Rosie Sansom (Love Bite, “The Rook”).
The film was written and directed by Rose Glass (Room 55, The Silken Strand) in what serves to be her debut film.
