Saint Maud ★★★½

obsession and possession are two sides of the same coin. illness manifests physically and mentally. how much can one suffer without losing their faith, their sanity? 

rose glass’s debut feature (!) expertly builds suspense and tension — it all leads up to an unforgettably shocking ending that burns itself into your memory, a stigmata for the hippocampus. i got irrationally scared in my bathroom when i returned home from the drive-in, which is an indisputable trademark of high-grade horror!
