Studiocanal has dropped the UK trailer for upcoming religious psychological horror ‘Saint Maud’.

The film follows live-in nurse Maud who arrives at the home of Amanda, a famous dancer now frail from illness and trapped in her grand, isolated house. At first, Amanda is intrigued by this religious young woman, who provides a distraction from her failing health. Maud, in turn, is bewitched by her new patient. But Maud is not all that she seems. She is tormented by a violent secret from her past and by ecstatic messages she believes are directly from God. She becomes convinced she has been sent to Amanda not simply as a nurse, but to serve a divine purpose.

As her grip on reality slides out of control, Maud’s care turns into a deadly mission to save Amanda’s soul, by any means necessary.

Written and directed by Rose Glass who makes her directorial debut, the film stars Morfydd Clark and Jennifer Ehle.
