After stretching the truth on a deal with a spiritual guru, literary agent Jack McCall finds a Bodhi tree on his property. Its appearance holds a valuable lesson on the consequences of every word he speaks.
Sixteen-year-old Xtra Keys hopes to raise his son better than his boozy, razor-edged mother raised him, and he just might get his wish when he's thrust into an unorthodox alternative school full of underprivileged boys.

After botching a bank job, a pair of intrepid skinheads lay low in an isolated cabin. After several weeks, living on booze and chips, their relationship regresses into a vicious struggle to destroy each other.
In Middletown high school, the outcast Eli is bullied by the braggart Brandon and his friends. They are held in detention by the principal Addison to be interviewed by the psychologist Jessie, who is engaged to Deputy Travis the son of the local priest. Jessie and Addison realize that the mentally disturbed Eli misses his big brother Devon, who was murdered in a hit-and-runner. When Eli finally talks to Jessie, he tells that Devon was killed by Brandon. Further, Eli tells that he found the body of his brother and a witch has put an evil spirit in his body. Now he needs six souls to live again and he will seek revenge against Brandon and his friends. The skeptic and atheist Jessie does not believe in his words.Written by

I don't know why he would ask you to talk to me.
You don't know anything?
[Nick nods his head 'no']
He has fresh bodywork done to his truck.
I - I - I - I think he may have hit a deer or something.
How long ago?
One? No, er - two weeks ago?
Nick, someone you know was killed by a hit and run driver. That boy, no matter how screwed up you think he is, lost a brother. If you know something, you have a duty, a duty to say something.

A strange outcast kid who likes to draw has recently lost his brother in a mysterious hit and run accident. He claims his brother is returning from the dead with the help of a witch, becomes entangled with the brother's former rivals, and the school shrink attempts to intervene. Some really crazy and tragic stuff follows.
A RESURRECTION is decently acted and quite well-filmed: The winter scenery adds a great deal to the atmosphere. The first 20 minutes or so are very engrossing, but the storyline then progressively staggers, quickly degenerating into a pretty ho-hum slasher flick. A RESURRECTION may be worth seeing if you're a big supernatural horror (or Mischa Barton) fan; but then again, you've probably seen this movie many times before.
There's a lot more they could have done with this. More back-story on the brother's death and why it happened might have helped.
