‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ sequel reunites ‘The Guest’ star Dan Stevens with director Adam Wingard

One of the hottest titles at this year’s Sundance was Writer/Director Andreas Semans‘s resurrectiona shocking horror thriller with a powerful performance of Rebecca Hall.

The brand new trailer below teases just how intense things are getting for Hall’s character. It oozes with claustrophobic anxiety and paranoia.

In resurrection, “Margaret (Hall) leads a successful and orderly life, perfectly balancing the demands of her busy career and single parenthood for her fiercely independent daughter Abbie. Everything under control. But that careful balance is turned on its head when an unwelcome shadow from her past, David (Timo Roth), returns, carrying with her the horrors of Margaret’s past.

“As Margaret battles her growing fear, she must confront the monster she has avoided for two decades, who has come to close her unfinished business. Delivering pure mayhem one moment and a sense of deep familiarity the next, writer-director Andrew Semans creates a film that promises a compelling emotional journey fused with a living nightmare in the vein of a great Guignol.”

The film also has stars Grace Kaufman and Michael Esper.

Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films, previously said in a press release, “Rebecca Hall and Tim Roth make career-defining performances in Andrew Semans’ insightful and devilishly entertaining film resurrection. We are very excited to be working with Andrew and the amazing production team to bring audiences a film that will exceed all expectations.”

My review from Sundance Calls resurrection a showcase for Halle. It highlights the horror: “Because Semans incorporated horror into this psychological thriller, resurrection goes captivating to dark, grisly places. Early on, a grotesque nightmare scene gives only the tiniest hint of where Margaret’s journey will end.”

You can see part of this grotesque nightmare in the trailer.

resurrection will be released in theaters and on-demand by IFC Films on 5.8where Shudder only handles the first streaming window.
