Rebecca Hall psychological thriller is coming to theatres and VOD in August


A few months ago, we heard that IFC Films will be handling the theatrical and VOD release of the psychological thriller Resurrection, while the Shudder service will be the home of its first streaming window. Now it has been announced that Resurrection‘s theatrical and VOD release is scheduled for August 5th – and with that announcement, a teaser trailer for the film has arrived online. Check it out in the embed above!

Resurrection will stream on Shudder starting in November.

Written and directed by Andrew Semans, Resurrection is said to have “generated buzz at Sundance for its shocking and terrifying themes involving abusive relationships blended with more naturalistic horror elements in the French grand guignol legacy.” Our own Chris Bumbray had the chance to watch the film when it premiered as part of the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and you can read his 9/10 review at THIS LINK.

Rebecca Hall (The Night House) stars in the film as

Margaret, who 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 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.

Hall, who Bumbray said gives an award-worthy performance, is joined in the cast by Grace Kaufman (Man with a Plan) and Michael Esper (Ray Donovan), with Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs) as David.

The trailer makes Resurrection look very interesting to me. After seeing that and reading Bumbray’s review, I’m guaranteed to be watching this movie when it’s released later this year. Are you looking forward to Resurrection? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
