Sinopsis: 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. One of the most talked-about discoveries of last year’s festival circuit, “Resolution” is genre-bending horror at its most bone-chilling.
Bio: Justin Benson grew up in San Diego where he barely graduated high school, but excelled in junior college when he discovered filmmaking. Since graduating from UCLA Justin has written, directed, and worked just about every odd job across the spectrum of the film industry. Most of the budget for Resolution was raised from these gigs. He has previously directed several short films and commercials, and Resolution is his first feature. Aaron S. Moorhead grew up in Tarpon Springs, Florida. As a precocious child he made films on VHS, and directed his first feature at only 19 years old. He has a deep love of nearly any film that takes a risk. Since graduating from FSU Film School, he has worked in the visual side of filmmaking as a cinematographer, director, VFX artist, and colorist. He has shot several indie features, as well as numerous shorts and commercials.
