The Resort is about an up-and-coming writer named Lex (Bianca Haase) who prefers to draw inspiration for her stories from morbid places and supernatural phenomena. In this regard, the birthday present from her friends Chris (Brock O’Hurn), Bree (Michelle Randolph) and Sam (Michael Vlamis) seems almost perfect.
The four fly by helicopter to a small Hawaiian island where there is a holiday resort that was abandoned years ago and is slowly starting to fall into disrepair. According to a legend that persists to this day, the reason for the failure shortly after the opening of the facility was a female ghost who was up to mischief here.
The young people begin to look around the empty walls and look for the “girl with half a face” who is said to be haunting there. In one of the rooms, they actually make some spooky discoveries. Pursuing them, they stupidly miss the last boat back to the mainland and have to spend the night at the resort…
In North America, The Resort debuted in cinemas on April 30, 2021, while the thriller was made available as video-on-demand in the UK on the same day. In our latitudes, the film will now be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 22, 2022 with FSK 16 approval. Both formats can already be pre-ordered from online providers such as Amazon.
