Relic (2020)

For the first time in my life I am writing a review that isn’t positive. If you do not like this, that is fine. I’ll see you in the next one.

The story

A daughter, mother and grandmother are haunted by a manifestation of dementia that consumes their family’s home. I found this information here.

The trailer

My thoughts

Personally I believe that if you have to look up what the plot of the movie means two things could have happend. It went right over your head or it wasn’t really good. Now I will take the chances of it being the former but I simply didn’t enjoy it. The first hour nothing really happend. The story kept flopping between it being alzheimer’s disease or an evil entity. I would have enjoyed both these stories separately. Or maybe even an evil entity that is taking over the mother but it looks like it’s alzheimer’s to everyone else. Now that might be a story. In the last 5 minutes the mum has a complete character change which is really weird and didn’t make sense. You might enjoy this story but for me it took too long and the ending was just weird. It wasn’t scary (apart from the ending but skin peeling is gross in my opinion). Also alzheimer’s disease isn’t as genetic as the movie made it out to be which is just making people fearful which is dangerous for people’s mental health. Also the part of the ‘extra house’ was frustrating as it wasn’t explained and it didn’t make sense, where in other films it can work well. I personally wouldn’t recommend this movie to other people as I have seen films I enjoyed more. If you did enjoy this film, let me know. You might change my mind.

Lots of love, Melissa
