Any attempt to describe this film would in too much detail might spoil it: Creepy photographs, bizarre found films, mysterious caves, possibly supernatural forces at work, and too many twists and turns to mention. If you like watching unique films unlike any you’ve seen before, then look no further than RESOLUTION, a one-of-a-kind horror movie that took the Tribeca Film Festival this year by storm. Just come see it and be equally blown away!
“A smart and subversive take on some of the most recognizable themes and ideas found in horror cinema” - Fearnet
“Quality indie horror….full of creeptastic and intense moments that will get your mind racing…..it will stay with you long after watching.” - Bloody-Disgusting
“Resolution is a horror movie of ideas; a twisted semiotic pretzel which is an ode to our collective addiction to scary movies.” – Twitch
Official Selection - 5 International Film Festivals including Tribeca, Fantasia
Just as CABIN IN THE WOODS shook up the horror world with its slick satirizing of the tried and true trope of its titular namesake, RESOLUTION similarly conjures a deftly meta excursion into the genre in a fashion that feels original, absorbing and damn creepy. In a cabin by the woods, a junkie is visited by his estranged best friend in a desperate bid to rehabilitate him. As they rekindle their friendship in the dilapidated abode, they soon find themselves accosted by increasingly sinister neighboring forces, while stumbling upon a series of interconnected media (from diaries to VHS tapes) that surreally begin to embroil them in a supernatural plot that pervades both the cabin and its surroundings.
In contrast to the underlying dread present throughout, RESOLUTION is also frequently hilarious; its charismatic leads feel like real people, rather than archetypal genre fodder, and you’ll find yourself genuinely worried about whether they’ll make it to the end of the final reel as the tension tightens.
