    • Excerpt: There are echoes of many great films and filmmakers in Glass’s work – Polanski’s ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ and ‘Repulsion,’ Stanley Kubrick, ‘The Exorcist’ and even Lars von Trier. And yet her film never feels derivative.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: A compelling study of a woman undone by religious mania.

    • Excerpt: The whole therefore becomes like one of the tornadoes spinning in Maud’s view. It tightens and tightens before touching down to wreak its havoc.

    • Excerpt: Expertly building suspense and tension – and popping that bubble perfectly with some of the most effective jump scares of recent memory – ‘Saint Maud’ has all the markings of a horror great, with a killer ending to boot.

    • Excerpt: Rose Glass’ debut feature film, as both writer and director, dives into trauma, obsession, isolation, and a searing look at religious fanaticism.
