Six months before his wedding, Shawn is suddenly filled with doubt. Maybe it was the family wedding, maybe it was his friends, maybe all it took was the beautiful girl in white. Before he knows it, casual glances turn into something more. His fiancé, Amy, knows things aren't right, but Shawn isn't talking, that is, until the girl in white hitches a ride. Now the glances and guilt become an argument, ending with the girl walking down the dark road again. The fight continues and when Amy gets suspicious, she forces Shawn to turn the car around to find the girl, but Shawn doesn't see her until she darts in front of the car. The accident leaves Amy in a coma, and Shawn bruised, with few answers and unable to separate the girl in white from facts and legend. When he returns to the ballroom, Wilkes, the owner, lets Shawn in on the decades old secret: Mary is in a dance with the devil. Now sins, sanity and Amy's salvation are at stake as Shawn searches for a way to bring her back, and Mary ... Written by
Although it had the smallest budget of any movie at the 7th Chicago Horror Film Festival, an international event with submissions from countries like Great Britain, Ireland, Japan, Canada, Austrailia and all across the US, "Resurrection Mary" walked away with the big awards of the event, winning "Best Feature Film" and the "Audience Choice Award."

Bottom-dweller David Lynch-wannabe co-starring Martin Sheen's brother...
While at a wedding reception for another couple, a self-doubting groom-to-be spies a platinum blonde in a white satin dress giving him the eye; intrigued, he follows her into the ladies room, but she vanishes. Later, out on the road with his fiancée, the young man apparently hits the girl with his car, only to learn that she's a ghost--the legendary jilted tramp from years gone by who perished with a doomed soul! What might have passed muster as a short-subject from a student filmmaker is elongated here to an excruciating length, filled with amateur performances, crass dialogue, flashy editing which serves no purpose except to confuse, T&A interludes, and bright red blood. Star Jason Ryan Lovett has the granite jaw and solemn manner of a misunderstood hero from a 1960s B-flick, but he isn't given the proper material to showcase a personality. Low-budget film isn't ghastly, though it shows no imagination, no style. Hopefully for Lovett, better projects are lying in wait. NO STARS from ****
