Storyline

If Detective Mark Ryan ever wanted to see someone executed, then serial killer William Charles Lee, who killed Ryan's wife, but even that doesn't satisfy him. After five years of complaints against Ryan, the bitchy Community Relations official gets him banished as 'liaison' to the prestigious college's campus police. Luckily his partner, Chris Thomson, admires a real cop who isn't afraid to use his gun. When professor Arkin has all funds cut to continue ten years of nanotechnology research inserting DNA to revive cells in a dead body, he and his foxy female assistant go ahead 'privately' using a prison-supplied corps; Ryan interrupts them at the crucial phase, but not in time to stop it, and soon suspects correctly the resurrected man is Lee, whose murderous drive immediately strikes again, and more then once...

Evil Never Dies (2003)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Made for TV take on the Frankenstein story has an early performance by Katherine Heigl from Knocked Up fame and this is the only reason I watched this but the movie turned out to be pretty good. Thomas Gibson plays a cop who has his life turned upside down after a serial killer murders his wife. The killer dies via lethal injection but a nutty scientist steals his body and eventually brings him back to life. Once alive, the killer goes after the cop who has now befriended a woman (Heigl) who helped in the scientist's experiment. I wasn't expecting too much out of this film but some tight direction really picks this up and makes this better than most of your made for TV films out there. The opening sequence with the cop's wife getting murdered contains some nice suspense and the director does a great job at building the scene. The movie goes by at a very fast pace and Gibson makes for a good leading character. Heigl adds nice support as well. The film's biggest problem are some incredibly stupid plot holes that take place to make the cop look crazy. These scenes come off pretty badly and are just downright stupid but outside of this the film works on many levels.
