In an abandoned cabin on the edge of an Indian reservation, Mike (Peter Cilella) stages a risky intervention to force his friend Chris (Vinny Curran) off meth and into rehab. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend’s life takes an unexpected turn when ominous threats start appearing around the house – and they realize that Chris’s addictions are the least of their worries. One of the most talked-about discoveries of last year’s festival circuit, Resolution is genre-bending horror at its most bone-chilling.

“This combination of shrewd self-awareness, experimentation, boundary-less creepiness, and popcorn instincts is a work that recalls David Lynch, Adam Wingard, and the scariest parts of BLAIR WITCH. Oh, and maybe I’d throw Monte Hellman in there, too.” – Twitch Film
“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
“A smart and subversive take on some of the most recognizable themes and ideas found in horror cinema” – Icons of Fright
RESOLUTION is one of the best horror movies of the past couple of years. It is creepy, scary, smart and funny. Like CABIN IN THE WOODS, RESOLUTION plays with all the tropes of the standard cabin in the woods horror movie but in this programmer’s opinion does it in a much smarter and much more interesting way. Yes, there is the crazy guy in the woods, yes there may be an Indian burial ground nearby and yes things will go bad for Michael and his drug addicted buddy Chris when Michael decides to handcuff him to a wall. Who or what is watching, and recording them and will they survive when their surroundings turn against them. RESOLUTION is one of those movies which will leave you thinking about what was truly going on long after seeing it and you will want to revisit it to see how all the pieces fit together. – John Allison
