Charles Dexter Ward's wife enlists the help of a private detective to find out what her husband is up to in a remote cabin owned by his family for centuries. The husband is a chemical engineer, and the smells from his experiments (and the delivery of what appear to be human remains at all hours) are beginning to arouse the attention of neighbors and local law enforcement officials. When the detective and wife find a diary of the husband's ancestor from 1771, and reports of gruesome murders in the area begin to surface, they begin to suspect that some very unnatural experiments are being conducted in the old house. Based on an H.P. Lovecraft story. Written by

When Claire Ward first visits John March, she sits in his office, and we can see Holly the receptionist's desk behind Claire through the glass wall. The first time we see this shot, there is someone who is not Holly behind the desk. The next time we see the shot, Holly is at her desk, but talking to someone, although as far as we know, no one else is there. See more »
Great horror film very loosely based on Lovecraft.
"The Resurrected" is very loosely based on H.P Lovecraft's "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward".Basically it tells the story of chemical engineer Charles Dexter Ward who gets mixed up in the supernatural when he inherits some books and papers from his dead relative.His wife begins noticing changes in him,so she hires a detective to find out what he has been up to."The Resurrected",whilst far from being perfect,is a surprisingly creepy little horror flick.Dan O'Bannon who made excellent "The Return of the Living Dead" delivers plenty of gore and grotesque special effects.The characters are uncomplicated and well defined and there is enough creepiness to satisfy fans of Lovecraft's macabre tales.Overall,"The Resurrected" is a creepy and bloody horror flick that packs a healthy dose of suspense and surprises.Give it a look.9 out of 10.
