While the capital region is a promising hotspot for major Hollywood productions, some go more unnoticed than others. Not all productions want the same glitz and publicity as HBO’s “Gilded Age.” Some prefer to remain secret until the appropriate time.
Now, a thriller that hovered silently around Albany in the summer of 2021 is USA Today’s craziest horror movie of 2022. I will be seeing a lot of Albany while this is happening.
“Hey, that sounds familiar”
From the Empire State Plaza to the South Troy Diner, the Capital Region shines in Resurrection; a new thriller set in Albany. The film stars Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The night house, The city) and Tim Roth (reservoir dogs, pulp Fiction‘She-Hulk: Lawyer’).
“Margaret’s life is in order. She is capable, disciplined and successful. Soon her teenage daughter, whom Margaret raised alone, will go to a fine college, just as Margaret had planned. Everything is under control. That is, until David returns, taking with him the horrors of Margaret’s past. – Resurrection Plot synopsis via Rotten Tomatoes
In an interview with The Times-Union after the film’s release, director Andrew Semans said he chose the Capital Region because it’s a “visually appealing urban setting” that has a very different feel to it. a usual place like New York. Semans said his only regret about filming here was that they “weren’t able to get more of the city into the film.”
where to watch
Resurrection premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to positive reviews, and IFC Films picked up North American theatrical and video-on-demand rights. Ironically, Albany wasn’t on the list of cities to get a theatrical release.
Resurrection is currently “Certified Fresh” on 81% Rotten Tomatoes. If you watch the film, beware: the film is said to contain some particularly disturbing scenes for parents, and be sure to hurry. It’s currently available to rent on Amazon, Apple TV, and Google Play, but is heading exclusively to horror streamer Shudder on October 28.
