‘Resurrection’ Interview: Director Andrew Semans On His Twisted Thriller With Rebecca Hall And Tim Roth

This weekend is the release of Andrew Semans’ sophomore effort, Resurrection. The psychological thriller was one of the most buzzed-about films at Sundance earlier this year, and I’m unashamed to say it MESSED ME UP! Semans goes to some dark and twisted places with the film, which stars Rebecca Hall as Margaret, a mother whose seemingly-perfect life is toppled with the arrival Tim Roth’s David, an abusive figure from her past.

This movie is not for the faint of heart, and I couldn’t wait to ask Semans where the inspiration for it came from. The answer might surprise you.

Check out my interview with Andrew Semans below! Resurrection opens on July 29th.
