movie poster Resolution (2012)Slow-burn horror at its twisty unexpected best.

Synopsis: “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.” (source)

My thoughts: After watching (and loving!) SPRING, I had to check out the directors’ other work. RESOLUTION is one of those movies where you can’t say a whole lot about its plot without spoiling what makes it such a thrill ride. I went into the movie expecting a story about two old friends reuniting so the friend addicted to drugs could kick the habit. Then weird stuff happens. Then it gets bizarre. Trippy, even. I had the most fun NOT knowing what was going to happen next.

Highly recommended if you enjoyed movies like FETCHING CODY or MINE GAMES.
