IFC Films releases first trailer for ‘Resurrection,’ praised by Sundance

IFC Films has released the first trailer for its upcoming psychological thriller Resurrection and the film looks like another solid entry in the so-called “elevated” horror category that is redefining the genre that was once fueled by pulp and gore. The film garnered much praise from audiences at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and looks poised to become another successful blend of horror and art house.

Resurrection features Godzilla vs Kong actor Rebecca Hall in a performance that has already garnered critical acclaim. Hall plays Margaret, a woman leading a highly organized existence, her life as a single mother to her daughter Abbie and his busy career perfectly compartmentalized, until a shadow of her past emerges from her to turn life of her in chaos.

The mysterious David, played by Tim Roth, returns to Margaret’s life, “carrying the horrors of Margaret’s past. Confronting her growing fear, Margaret must confront the monster she has evaded for two decades and which has come to wrap up her unfinished business,” according to the IFC press release.

Resurrection is written and directed by Andrew Semans. The film was developed from a script by Semans that appeared on the 2019 “Blacklist” of popular unproduced scripts by new screenwriters. Square Peg’s Lars Knudsen, Secret Engine’s Alex Scharfman and Drew Houpt, and Rosetory’s Tory Lenosky will produce. In addition to Hall and Roth, the film will star Grace Kaufman and Michael Esper.

The film will open in theaters on August 5. The film will also be available as video on demand and will later be available for streaming on Shudder.
