‘Relic’: Meet Emily Mortimer and the rest of the cast of this spine-chilling indie horror

Published

on

A single look at the trailer for Natalie Erika James’s debut feature horror will send a chill down the spine of anybody who has witnessed ‘The Taking of Deborah Logan’, or more recently, Netflix’s ‘The Haunting of Hill House’. Psychological thrillers have always been more terrifying than actual supernatural elements of horror, but it doesn’t hurt to mingle both of them together every now and then to weave a masterpiece like James’s soon-to-be-arriving saga. 



 

 

The synopsis reveals that ‘Relic’ is a tale is about “A daughter, mother and grandmother are haunted by a manifestation of dementia that consumes their family’s home.” Edna, whose memory is rapidly evaporating, goes missing, thus drawing her distant daughter Kay and warm granddaughter Sam to her country home on the hunt for the family matriarch. She returns soon, but she’s not the same. Neither is the house she has lived in for ages now as her grappling mental health manifests in the form of a possessed house with labyrinthine layers. What makes the story more chilling is its stellar cast. But for all those puzzled about where you know them from, we’ve got you covered with the who’s who.

The 77-year-old former head of the Sydney Theatre Company has been married to Nicholas Hammond for 33 years. She has one daughter, called Emily Russell.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
