Amulet15

Directed by Romola Garai | UK | 2020 | 1h 39m | Starring Alec Secareanu, Carla Juri, Imelda Staunton, Angeliki Papoulia

A homeless ex-soldier is offered shelter by a nun, inviting him to live in a dilapidated home shared by a young woman and her mother. While earning his keep by fixing up the house, he begins to notice strange noises emanating from locked rooms and sinister goings on. The spectre of war and its effect on women haunts Romola Garai’s unnerving British horror debut.

Reviews

‘A moody, brooding chiller that goes from slow-boil creaks to rapturous, hallucinogenic madness.’
★★★★
Mark Kermode, The Observer

‘It’s an evocative, confident debut, recalling the metaphorical horror of Jennifer Kent’s “The Babadook” or Babak Anvari’s “Under The Shadow,” even as it announces the arrival of a singular new voice.’
★★★★
Toussaint Egan, The AV Club

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
