One of the buzziest titles out of this year’s Sundance was writer/director Andrew Semans‘s Resurrection, a shocking horror thriller with a powerhouse performance by Rebecca Hall.
The brand new trailer below teases just how intense things will get for Hall’s character. It oozes with claustrophobic dread and paranoia.
In Resurrection, “Margaret (Hall) leads a successful and orderly life, perfectly balancing the demands of her busy career and single parenthood to her fiercely independent daughter Abbie. Everything is under control. But that careful balance is upended when an unwelcome shadow from her past, David (Tim Roth), returns, carrying with him the horrors of Margaret’s past.
“Battling her rising fear, Margaret must confront the monster she’s evaded for two decades who has come to conclude their unfinished business. Writer-director Andrew Semans delivers pure havoc one moment and feelings of deep familiarity the next, creating a film that promises a gripping emotional journey fused with a grand guignol style living nightmare.”
The film also stars Grace Kaufman and Michael Esper.
Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films, previously said in a press release, “Rebecca Hall and Tim Roth give career-defining performances in Andrew Semans’ revelatory and diabolically entertaining Resurrection. We are so thrilled to partner with Andrew and the amazing producing team to bring a film to audiences that will completely defy expectation.”
My review out of Sundance calls Resurrection a showcase for Hall. It highlights the horror: “Because Semans infused horror into this psychological thriller, Resurrection captivatingly goes to some dark, grisly places. Early on, a grotesque nightmare scene gives only a tiny hint of where Margaret’s journey will end.”
You can glimpse some of that grotesque nightmare in the trailer.
Resurrection will be released by IFC Films in theaters and on-demand on August 5, with Shudder exclusively taking the first streaming window.
