Storyline

Detective John Prudhomme, a Cajun transplanted to Chicago, is assigned to investigate the savage murder of a man who has bled to death from a severed arm. A message, "He Is Coming", written in blood on the victim's window is a dark, forboding clue of his task. After two more victims with missing body parts are discovered, Prudhomme realizes he is on the trail of a serial killer who is using the missing body parts to reconstruct the body of Christ...just in time for Easter. As Prudhomme struggles to catch the zealot-murderer, he is haunted by the death of his son, his continued estrangement from his wife, and his wavering faith in God.

Trivia

Actor Christopher Lambert, writer Brad Mirman and director Russell Mulcahy were having a meeting at an LA hotel to discuss another project that they were working on, but the trio couldn't stop talking about "Resurrection" and how much they liked the idea. The three soon abandoned the other film, and quickly decided to make this film. See more »

Goofs

Takes place in Chicago, but the train station has many signs in French as well as English, giving away the actual Toronto location. You can also see the Canadian flag hanging in the main concourse of the train station in one of the scenes. See more »

Quotes

John Prudhomme: Do you have any idea how difficult it is to get away with murder? There are fifty ways to fuck up a crime and if you can think of twenty of them, you're a genius. So far, this guy is batting a thousand.

A very interesting movie
12 February 2000 | by (Sacramento) – See all my reviews

This is the type that is made for people who love to see blood and gore.

Similar to "Seven", this film takes place in Chicago as John Prudhomme is on the trail of a serial killer along with his partner, Andy Hollingsworth, who is killing men for their body parts.

I enjoyed the way that the story was told. For example, the killer is killing to resurrect the body of Christ, which I found very interesting because I have not seen it done in film before.

I am not a huge fan of Christopher Lambert; however, this film has proven that I should take a look at more of his movies because he can be a dramatic actor as well as an action star.

I'm glad I saw this movie
