Like 'In Bruges' & 'Sexy Beast'? Watch an Exclusive Clip from Arthouse Crime Pic 'Resurrection of a Bastard'

An bona fide bastard, Ronnie is a heartless, violent debt collector who, after getting a taste of his own medicine during a near-death experience, begins to question the meaning of his life—all while retaining his blood-thirst for revenge.

“The Resurrection of a Bastard” world-premiered way back in 2013 at the Rotterdam Film Festival before touring Fantasia Fest and Fantastic Fest, where Yorick van Wageningen (who starred in Fincher’s “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) picked up the Best Actor prize. The film was well-reviewed on the festival circuit, with THR writing: “Reminiscent in theme of such Euro-sourced art house hits as ‘Sexy Beast’ and ‘In Bruges,’ this debut trades their showy virtuosity for introspection.”

Now, the film is finally in theaters from Syndicado and hits VOD on Tuesday, April 7. Check out an enticing exclusive clip (and the trailer) below, in which Ronnie’s employer, a mystery man named James Joyce, tells a twisted story.
