Movie Info

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.

Resolution makes its own creative crisis the star, trying to make something original out of elements so hackneyed, the filmmakers can't bear to reproduce them.

Ambiguity enlivens the smart, knotty Resolution, which routinely nods to its own artificiality while positing storytelling as a constantly evolving beast apt to save your life one moment and consume you the next.

"Resolution" is a notch above your average low-budget horror flick. It has the usual gore and scares and head-scratching events. But, the story is what locked me in.

Honest about the impulses of addiction, but could stand to have its core interpersonal conflict sharpened up some without sacrificing any of its overall narrative ambiguity.

Audience Reviews for Resolution

Even if the plot drags in the first two acts, eliminating the tension and making the mystery feel bland and not engaging, this is an interesting effort that finds a curious balance between humor and horror, with a smart meta-twist in the third act that justifies all that came before.

A nicely thought concept, executed with a lot of attention to detail that suffers from it's ubber small budget that give away dead moments and humor that is just not funny and doesn't work to keep the mistery alive. The "twist" was decent even if heavy handed, when the rest of the picture was subtle on exploring it's mysteries and concepts.
