Director Natalie Erika James told Insider in a new interview that she had to change a part of her new film "Relic" after watching Ari Aster's "Hereditary" in 2018. 

Speaking to Insider, James explained that she and co-writer Christian White (who were already working on "Relic") had given their character Edna (Robyn Nevin) a hobby of making dollhouse furniture. However, after they saw Aster's movie — in which Annie (Toni Collette) is an avid miniaturist — the writers changed Edna's hobby to candlemaking.
