Resurrection (2022) is a psychological horror film that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2022. It stars Rebecca Hall (from The Prestige and The Gift) as Margaret and Tim Roth as David.
Tim Roth is eerie as the deranged David and if you happen to have seen the TV series Lie To Me, there is another layer of creepiness added. The protagonist of that series, Dr. Cal Lightman, also played by Tim Roth, has a sweet teenage daughter named Emily, and Abbie (Grace Kaufman) reminded me of her.
Gore and violence are used sparingly, with the majority of the horror coming from things that are only described and happened off-screen. Everything really hinges on Rebecca Hall's performance, as she is in every scene, and she absolutely nails it.
Resurrection is an intense, disturbing psychological horror film that is strictly for horror fans.
Resurrection will release digitally in Australia from 30 November
