Actress turned writer-director Romola Garai has visual flair and an impeccable taste in European actors, but the screenplay of her feature debut, Amulet, leaves much to be desired. Full Review
This elevated neo-gothic is executed with a firm hand and a beguiling imagination, its mysteries rooted in war, sexual violence and ancient evil.
3 stars out of 5 -- You get the sense that you’re being guided along by someone with a vision, as well as facility for marshaling her collaborators around that vision.
Actress Romola Garai makes a distinctive feature directorial debut with AMULET....She hasn’t just created a stylish potboiler, but a densely textured piece that makes for a truly arresting viewing experience to a point.
Rating: 0.5/5 -- Juri and Secareanu also try to make their budding relationship a kind of possession which threatens to engulf one or both of them, but Garai, who also wrote, just doesn't give them enough of a foundation to truly evoke much of a reaction. Full Review
Their Own League
Rating: 3/5 -- I absolutely loved just how wickedly weird things get in Amulet once the story gets fully amped up, and I think Garai shows a lot of promise here as a director who isn't interested in just giving us the same ol' horror-centric song and dance. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- A dull and severe slow-burn where the audacious payoff doesn't quite make the preceding two-thirds of the film feel worth the wait. Full Review
Writer-director Romola Garai's debut horror film stars Imelda Staunton, Carla Juri, Alec Secareanu, and Angeliki Papoulia. A strange English young woman and her abusive, terminally ill mother take in a PTSD-afflicted European war refugee after his makeshift home is burnt down. As he helps them to repair their decaying and dilapidated mansion, he begins to suspect that dark and mysterious forces are at work there.
