Cheap Thrills: Relic

Horror has never been more alive than it is right now and a lot of that stems from the understated indie gems that come out each and every month. They’re cheap, they’re thrilling, and they’re often some of the best films the genre has to offer. Cheap Thrills aims at highlighting the upcoming indie horror films (and some other interesting movies that come our way) that should be on your radar.

What has quietly become one of the genre’s most anticipated films of the year has dropped its first trailer and it looks like a phenomenal take on haunted houses. Directed by Natalie Erika James, Relic appears to be living up to the hype here with an extremely creepy first look. I’ve always been a big fan of the haunted house subgenre (shoutout to Crimson Peak), because it takes the one place we feel safest and turns it into nightmare fuel. This looks fantastic.

When Edna, the elderly and widowed matriarch of the family, goes missing, her daughter Kay and granddaughter Sam travel to their remote family home to find her. Soon after her return, they start to discover a sinister presence haunting the house and taking control of Edna.

Relic is out on VOD this July 10th. So while you wait, feast on more Cheap Thrills here.

  1. I love cheap thrills and always look forward to find out about new horror movies. But wow, this trailer spoils everything! Its a shame because the movie looks promising.

  2. I like what you said about the haunted house film turning home (a safe place) into a nightmare. I never thought about it that way before, but I agree that’s what makes it so successful.
