A Dark Song (2016)

Psychological horror. Catherine Walker and Steve Oram star in writer-director Liam Gavin's debut feature. After taking a year's tenancy on a secluded rural mansion, Sophia Howard picks up Joseph Solomon from the nearest station. She's as refined as he's rough around the edges. She tells the self-professed occultist she wants to be guided to her guardian angel via the ancient Abramelin Procedure. She's been purifying herself according to its code, abstaining from alcohol and sex and following a prescribed diet, for many weeks. But she's initially dishonest about her motive, which angers him; he says it's vital she tells the truth as they're 'playing with' real angels and real demons. After revealing that she really wants to speak to her dead son, they shut themselves in the house for the months-long Procedure, which includes days without sleep, fasting, back-breaking rites and ritual sex, and which cannot be abandoned safely before its completion.
