A24 has a new horror film on the way and this one wants promises to save your soul... or does it? From the studio behind a handful of notable genre titles such as Midsommer, The Witch, Hereditary, and The Lighthouse comes Saint Maud, a dark tale of devout salvation gone very wrong.

The story follows the devoted Maud, who becomes convinced that she must save the soul of her dying employer, the nonreligious Amanda, as signs of eternal damnation begin to descend upon their isolated seaside town. As you would come to expect, this situation quickly takes a horrifying turn for the worse.

Written and directed by newcomer Rose Glass, Saint Maud stars Morfydd Clark (Crawl, Netflix/BBC's Dracula), Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty), Lily Knight, Lily Frazer, Turlough Convery, Rosie Sansom, Marcus Hutton, Carl Prekopp, and Noa Bodner. The film is set to be released this spring.

Given the success of A24's recent efforts, this is one definitely worth keeping an eye on as its debut approaches. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for more news and updates ahead.
