Amulet is a 2020 British horror film written and directed by Romola Garai (in her directorial debut) and starring Carla Juri, Imelda Staunton and Alec Secareanu.
David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter called the film “smart and stylish” and wrote: “Garai steadily builds suspense while keeping her intentions enigmatic until quite late in the action. She eventually folds together mysteries of the past with terrors of the present in an out-there final act that goes full-throttle Dario Argento, mixing digital and hand-made effects in a sea of garish reds and bizarre pagan visions.” (wiki)
