Following last month’s teaser trailer of writer-director Andrew Semans‘ (Nancy, Please) sophomore feature Resurrection, IFC Films has today unleashed the first official full trailer for the Sundance smash hit bone-chilling shocker starring Rebecca Hall (The Night House, The Gift, The Awakening).
Hall has hit a high mark in the horror genre of late, and Resurrection looks set to repeat the runaway success of last year’s The Night House, promising a rousing emotional journey fused with a Grand Guignol living nightmare, introducing audiences to Margaret (Hall), a woman living a perfectly successful and organized life, perfectly balancing her busy career with the demands of being a single mother to her fiercely independent daughter, Abbie. But despite having managed to balance everything until now, Margaret’s meticulous balancing act gets thrown completely out of whack when an unwelcome ghost from her past, David (Tim Roth – Funny Games, Pulp Fiction), suddenly resurfaces, dragging the horrors of Margaret’s past with him. Grappling with a spiraling fear, Margaret musters the courage to stand up to face the monster she’s spent the last two decades hiding from, who has come to settle their unfinished business.
Resurrection promises to provoke sensations of chaos one minute and the deepest sense of familiarity the next when it releases through IFC Films in theaters and on-demand on August 5 before heading exclusively to Shudder in November 2022.
In the hopes of keeping your expectations high as we impatiently await the release date, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned first full trailer below.
