Two friends are in an isolated cabin. One of them is a junkie forced to go cold turkey.
They must fight mysterious forces while combating their own personal demons. Infused with dark humor, "Resolution" is "genre-bending horror filmmaking that'll make your head explode," promise the filmmakers.
Co-directors Justin Benson (who also wrote the script) and Aaron S. Moorhead united with their stars Peter Cilella and Vinny Curran and resolved to make this film while the four of them were working together on a beer commercial.
The cast also includes: Emily Montague, Zahn McClarnon, Bill Oberst Jr., Kurt Anderson, Skyler Meacham, Josh Higgins and Carmel Benson.
Justin Benson is a graduate of UCLA. He has previously directed shorts and commercials. This is his first feature-length film.
Aaron S. Moorhead has worked on 39 films, mostly as a cinematographer.
"Resolution" won the Mad Movies Award at the Neuchatel International Fantasy Films Festival. It was an official selection at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival, Fantasia International Film Festival, Toronto After Dark Film Festival, and Screamfest Horror Film Festival.
