SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE: Resurrection (2022)

Directed and written by Andrew Semans, Resurrection is the story of Margaret (Rebecca Hall), a single mother and successful businesswoman. Her life is changing, as her daughter Abbie (Grace Kaufman) is leaving for college and she’s having an affair with Peter (Michael Esper), a married co-worker. Then things get weird.

Abbie finds a tooth in her wallet, a tooth that may belong to the smile of David (Tim Roth), a man from her mother’s past. He once had a child with her named Benjamin, a child he claimed to have consumed, leaving two fingers behind. Now, he claims that the child is still in him and begins abusing her all over again.

Resurrection is not an easy watch, a film dominated by Roth who makes its protagonists engage in what he calls kindnesses to prove his love to her. As you can see, that love is anything but typical and filled with violence, cruelty and torture. If you’re ready to endure this darkness, it’s also a rewarding film.
