The last thing I needed, in 1999, was a serial killer reminding me that the end was near. Four years prior, Se7en came out. It was much better and hit the same notes. It was also dark, rainy, depressing, but the camera wasn’t this hectic. For example, every time director Russell Mulcahy wants to put emphasis on something awful, he pivots around his subject dramatically.
Every time, my eyes rolled and scratched the depths of my skull. This is not a bad story, but it lives in the shadow of a better film. It’s not exciting enough on its own, and it got butchered in the cutting room for gravitas’ sake. Christopher Lambert whispers and squints his way thorough this horrific procedural, as he often does. He co-wrote and co-produced it, so he takes his role seriously.
This is a dark frigging movie, and it’s incredibly sad. On paper. If you like police investigations and serial killers, this is probably right up your alley. If, on top of that, you like ecclesiastical horror tales, you’re going to have the time of your life. Resurrection is not a novelty. It’s paint-by-numbers, but it fits in a small niche and if you’re that audience you should definitely see it.
