In March, Hammer’s The Resident will be released straight to DVD in the US. After the really quite disappointing box office performance of Let Me In, I can only have doubts about the rejuvenated horror label’s future in the US.
In the UK, however, where the very notion of Hammer Horror carries more cultural weight and Hilary Swank comes with less baggage, The Resident is getting a theatrical release. No official trailer or poster have been released yet, but 24FPS did dig up this piece of teaser art. Christopher Lee. A door. Ajar.
And here’s a trailer for the film from YouTube. A filmed-from-the-TV version did the rounds last spring, but this high-quality copy seems to have pretty much evaded mainstream attention since it was posted the summer.
