New In The USA: RESOLUTION
Aaron Moorehead and Justin Benson got a lot of coverage in these pages as they took their very meta (more so than even The Cabin in the Woods) horror film across the genre festival circuit to rave reviews, awards and a limited theatrical release. If you never managed to catch it there, it has finally arrived here.
A friend helps his meth-addled pal detox in an isolated cabin, on an Indian burial ground, near a mental hospital, with religious crazies wandering about. Strange multimedia objects keep landing in their lap to suggest that they are being watched, recorded, and possibly more nefarious plots. Humour and horror (and drama) are all mixed together into a twisted semiotic pretzel which is an ode to our collective addiction to scary movies.
