The Resurrected – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 7

The Resurrected

The Resurrected (also known as Shatterbrain for some inscrutable reason) is based on Lovecraft’s The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. The reputation of movies based on Lovecraft’s work being what it is, The Resurrected was a nice surprise. And by nice I mean quite disturbing. It’s been too long since I read the story for me to say how faithful the adaptation is, but regardless of that the movie captures the mood and style of a Lovecraft story quite well. The acting is a bit stiff in parts, but overall I was impressed. This movie is well worth resurrecting from its essential salts.

About Ted Dahlberg

I'm a stoic, a pessimist, a bookworm, a skeptic, and possibly other things which take more than one word to say.
