The best horror film A24 has produced since Hereditary (yes, this is way better than Midsommar). Ari Aster now has fierce and horrific competition in the slow burning horror section. With only two jump scares, Saint Maud still manages to punish it's audience with the story of Maud. A lonely and depressed young adult nurse who's main source of joy is the feeling she gets when He is near her. Morfydd Clark's performance as Maud really sells the script, which serves as an unnerving meditation on religious fanatics and the dark side of undying faith. The second best thing about this film is it's dark and moody atmosphere well developed by it's top notch cinematography. The tension is palpable even with it's short runtime. Rose Glass really impresses with her first feature film and I hope to see her return with more confidence. Saint Maud may not reach the heights of Hereditary, but director Glass is someone to keep an eye on.
