“Saint Maud” is the first feature film from British writer-director Rose Glass, whose previous work includes the short “Room 55.” It next makes its U.S. premiere at Fantastic Fest on Sept. 19. No release date has yet been set. It will also be playing next month in competition at the BFI London Film Festival.
“Saint Maud” follows a pious but unstable nurse, Maud, who becomes convinced that she must save the soul of her dying employer, Amanda, as signs of eternal damnation begin to present themselves in their isolated seaside town. The film nods to other religious horror films, most notably “The Exorcist,” among others.
