Storyline

In Middletown high school, the outcast Eli is bullied by the braggart Brandon and his friends. They are held in detention by the principal Addison to be interviewed by the psychologist Jessie, who is engaged to Deputy Travis the son of the local priest. Jessie and Addison realize that the mentally disturbed Eli misses his big brother Devon, who was murdered in a hit-and-runner. When Eli finally talks to Jessie, he tells that Devon was killed by Brandon. Further, Eli tells that he found the body of his brother and a witch has put an evil spirit in his body. Now he needs six souls to live again and he will seek revenge against Brandon and his friends. The skeptic and atheist Jessie does not believe in his words.

Quotes

Jessie: You're an amazing artist, Eli. Are you self-taught?
[Eli stays silent]
Jessie: I was sorry to hear about your brother. I really was. I didn't know him, but I hear he was well liked. I know what's it's like to lose a sibling. I lost my sister to cancer five years ago. What is it between you and those others? They're very frightened. You know, these pictures depict some very violent things. You know, sometimes we use art to express the pain we're feeling inside. Some people eat too much. That's what I do....

Retro Psycho Thriller Flick
25 March 2013 | by joeknappSee all my reviews

I enjoyed watching A Resurrection. Unlike the dumbed-down horror flicks offered today, this movie recalls the era when thrillers like this actually had a great story behind them. I saw the end coming from a mile away. But, when the end finally came, it wasn't at all what I expected. That was a welcome surprise. At first I thought that too many people had been killed. After all, only six souls had to be taken, according to the Bruja's spell. But, after thinking back on it, I realized that some of the departed were not victims of the dead brother. They were killed by others instead. When is the last time a horror movie made you think? It's been a while. If you're fairly young, you may not have ever experienced an intelligent horror flick. Go rent Psycho. The camera work and editing are top quality and often quite creative. The acting is varied, but excellent in the most important characters. Eli is an example of casting perfection. I took my girlfriend to see this movie and she jumped and screamed at all the required scare points. That's a whole lot better than looking over at your girlfriend to find she's fallen asleep! It's also refreshing to walk out of the theater talking over the story. Too often these days I walk out, sometimes before the movie ends, wondering why I wasted so much money and thinking about asking for a refund. Go see A Resurrection. It's easily worth twice the price of admission.
