Movie propaganda

In 1999 our Lord will be resurrected in Chicago. He must be stopped.

Starring Christopher Lambert, Robert Joy, Leland Orser and Barbara Tyson. Story by Christopher Lambert and Brad Mirman. Directed by Russell Mulcahy.

I four films last week: two romantic comedies about straight guys pretending to be gay in order to do their job then falling in love with the woman they were deceiving (Three to tango and Happy, Texas) and two serial killer thrillers (The bone collector and Resurrection), both of which starred the same guy (once as a goodie and once as a baddie). Take this into account when I get confused.

Theatrical report

Killer thriller (you don't need to know the plot).

Resurrection takes the standard "Detective with a damaged heart/body but still brilliant mind versus serial killer with a damaged but brilliant mind" theme and adds a few icky, gruesome and clever twists. There is more gore in this film than Texas chainsaw nightmare the 13th.

What you also get is Christopher running around being damaged and emotional (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't), lots of police stuff (detectives answering phones, running around, talking in numbers) and lots of surprises. For once I won't spoil them for you (mostly because I've forgotten which surprises belong to which film).

This is a full-on, hard-core serial killer film (no punches pulled) that pokes its sticky finger into the hole in the body of Christ. You want suspense thriller, you got it.
