A love letter to body horror. Beautifully shot and equally beautifully scored. Agathe Rousselle delivered one hell of a powerhouse performance. Can’t wait to check out Raw as I anxiously await Julia Ducournau‘s next film.
Should have been 90 minutes shorter. We wanted Oceans Eleven meets Dawn of the Dead but instead we got a video game filmed with an iPhone on portrait mode. Lots of holes in the storyline and useless, overly dramatic side plots.
Tig was by far the best part and wasn’t featured nearly enough. Loved the fitting use of The Cranberries in the final scene.
Slightly underwhelmed but honestly that’s my fault for overhyping the trailer I first saw over a year ago. Religious horrors are my sweet spot!
I wish Saint Maud maintained the pacing and storyline intensity from the last half hour throughout the entire film. Really wanted to love this one but I found it to be a bit slow, difficult to see during the dimly-lit scenes, and frankly, I wasn’t invested in either of the main characters.
While parts of Saint Maud may have missed the mark, I still thought the final scene was hauntingly memorable and very well done. What a beautiful day at the beach!
