5.0 out of 5 starsI waited all of 2020 for this
Verified purchase
Saint Maud follows similar themes to previous A24 films The Witch and First Reformed. I was so happy to finally see this film after 6 months of arbitrary waiting, followed by the annoyance of starting an Epic trial just to view the movie. However it was well worth it as the leading actress' stellar performance easily lands it in a spot next to The Witch.
TW: Possibly triggering sex scene midway through the film

1.0 out of 5 starsBoring, uneventful
Verified purchase
I sat through more than 40 minutes of this plodding snooze fest & turned it off. I’d have rather spent those 40 mins watching paint dry, but In fairness, I gave it another shot today, picking up where I left off because with all the glowing media reviews. I thought maybe I was missing something. I’m not. Waiting for some big reveal or exciting, interesting action, but nope, nothing. Typical possession flick, no tension or scares to be found. Not one likeable or intriguing character in the movie, and just slowly paced & boring. Really don’t understand the media hype, this movie was just too slow & obvious.

Insensitive to people who have mental health issues and insults peoples faith and values.

3.0 out of 5 starsTonally impressive, narratively a bummer
Verified purchase
I waited a year to stream this and am disappointed. Spoiler alert: mental illness is the boogeyman.

It'd be cool if modern horror could stop doing the mental-illness-scary trope + oh wow immolation at the end (looking at you Aster). This movie could've been so much better if it leaned into the supernatural. OK, OK, as a character study of a lonely, mentally-ill woman, it's haunting and effective. A begrudging 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 starsSaint Maud is a dazzling look at the fury of religious ecstasy
Verified purchase
Around a year after the rest of the world, Saint Maud has finally had its U.S. release. Genuinely frightening and entirely engrossing, the film features a devout, anti-social nurse hell-bent on saving her patient's soul. A bloody beginning is followed by an hour and a half of pure pathos as we're immersed in Maud's perspective through the use of close-ups and ultra-close-ups and dizzying hand-held shaky camera movements that mirror Maud's probable-psychosis. First-time director Rose Glass masterfully documents the young nurse's descent into Catholic apocrypha as she experiences the brutality and bliss of immersive, psychotic faith. 9/10 very good.

4.0 out of 5 starsUnique, Surprising, Entertaining, Haunting
Verified purchase
This was so refreshing. Because it actually stayed with me. I found the idea to be unique and solid within the genre. I like this film maker and look forward to what else she has in store for us!!! Something actually happens. Unexpected things happen. It jerks your senses back and forth and just when you feel like you've settled in, and get it you go, Yikes WTF!!! I actually want to view again. It'll haunt you.

1.0 out of 5 starsGreat Premise...but no delivery, minimal horror, just Christianity re-digested yet again.
Verified purchase
This movie isn't horror, it's a drama with maybe 3 scenes of horror sprinkled through the run time. I anticipated this movie and do not think it lived up to it's hype. If you want to see mutilation for God just go watch Martyrs (the French one, 2008 I believe), or Passion of the Christ.
