Sunday Streaming:: Eve Tushnet on Resolution (2012)

December 15th, 2013 by unkle lancifer · 1 Comment

Hello! Most of my favorite “underrated” horror movies either aren’t that underrated (“Spider Baby,” “The Face of Another“) or you’ve already featured them (“I Start Counting“)…

But the 2012 indie film “Resolution” (Currently available on Netflix Streaming) really moved me. The basic idea is that a man receives a disturbing video from his meth-addicted former best friend, and he heads out to the friend’s remote hideout with a terrible, terrible plan to rescue him from addiction.

It’s a fun genre mash-up with an implied attack on the audience, like “Cabin in the Woods“; it’s got a good shift of balance as you start to wonder which friend is really crazier; the friendship is palpable, the dialogue is really funny, and the ending is a good sharp twist. Definitely more eerie or thought-provokingly disturbing than straight-up scary, but I loved it.

I wrote a somewhat longer review HERE.

All best–love KT & have found lots of great movies through you all,

Eve Tushnet

    Yay Eve! Thanks for allowing me to use your email recommendation as a Sunday Streaming post! I love it!

    And I’ve never seen ” A Face of Another” so that helps too!

    I watched Resolution last night. Thanks for giving me that extra push.

    It’s slow getting started but once the puzzle pieces start fitting together (or falling apart really) it gets super creepy.

    And it’s creepy in an unusual way. And I’m just the type of paranoid person that had no problem going there.

    It made me think of Session 9 and Pontypool.

    And for some reason right when the shit was hitting the fan my Streaming on my TV went out- which didn’t help. I fittingly had to finish watching on my computer!

    Thanks again! I’m still thinking about it now…
