Great horror film very loosely based on Lovecraft., 26 April 2006
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland

"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.
