    Relic is definitely the type of horror movie that appeals more to the critics than to gore-thirsty genre enthusiasts. Its slow pace in the first half seriously robbed it of its momentum and it's much more so a drama than it is a horror movie, but it undeniably succeeds as this creepy and very tragic film about approaching death of a loved one and the deterioration of the human mind. The performances are uniformly terrific and the final sequence is so amazing in its unsettling imagery and powerful emotion.

    4 kids. Electric out. So mad I wasted my charged laptop for this. Worst movie I have ever seen. Ever. Horrible. Makes no sense. Answers no questions. Awful

    Great movie that spreads a message about cherishing your loved ones before they can't cherish you. Great ending as well!

    Suspenseful and original horror with dramatic elements that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster. Some poignant moments dealing with family and especially dementia in the elderly. Definitely worth watching!

    When I first watched it I was kind of annoyed at the ending but then I researched the directors meaning behind the ending and it became all too crystal clear, to the point I teared up. If youve ever had the misfortune of having to watch a loved one go through this dreaded disease you will "get" this film. If you have been fortunate to not "get" this film, consider yourself lucky. The film basically says that you help your loved one strip away their old self and accept the new person they've become and love them unconditionally until that dreaded disease takes their life eventually. As someone who has gone through this, I felt a lot of pain watching this movie. Remember... do not get frustrated with your parent or grandparents loss of memory, or change in personality, just live in their fantasy world and play along, accept where they are at that moment, and redirect them when they are having an outburst. And yes living through this can be a horror story if you don't seek help on how to care for someone with dementia. God Bless

    Classic case of the audience wanting a Nightmare on Elm Street film. If you’re a casual horror fan, you’ll hate this movie. This is an actual film, not child’s play.

    It was interesting and slightly suspenseful but didn't have much of an understanding. Honestly this was a bad movie. They could have filled in more parts of the movie.

    Slowburn anxiety film, but when it hit me what the movie was actually about... it was kind of heart breaking. A mother and daughter search for the missing grandmother. When the grandmother is found she's not quite the same... creepy and sad film but definitely worth my time.

    Sometimes a good end to a boring movie can make,the insignificant moments powerful as it brings everything together into a stunning revelation. This movie does quite the opposite. The end made the boring moments even more boring and meaningless.

    Strikes a perfect ambiguity between dark fantasy and stark reality.
