Resurrection Movies

Happy Easter everyone!

Last year I threw down some bunny-related type clips for Easter. This year I thought I’d do something different like let’s say….. resurrection movies! I think for the theme of Easter it’s pretty suiting so here goes it…

Pet Semetary and Pet Semetary II

It sucks to lose someone you love, but why not bury their dead body in an Indian burial ground then poof have them back in your life? Sounds like a pretty sweet ass deal but the only down side is, they’re still all icky from the way they died and also, they want nothing more than to kill your face. Resurrection is looking like a bad idea. 


Last night at an Easter dinner, a friend mentioned that Robocop seemingly comes on every year on Easter. Could it be because he’s the sci-fi version of Jesus? Mmm maybe? Ironically enough after coming home, I found my Tivo taping Robocop for me. Good times.

But anyway, on the mean streets of Detroit, a good cop is killed by a gang. Instead of being buried, he’s transformed to a super cool, robot cop! If you’re going to come back from the dead, it’s a bonus to be a suped up and kick ass. 

Child’s Play

What do you do if you’re a serial killer almost ready to die in a toy store? Well, if you’re lucky enough to know a little Voodoo 101, you can always possess a doll. Charles Lee Ray is re-born to Chucky the doll. He gets to ditch his shot up body and stroll around in his pint sized new digs. Not that Chucky has ever been successful in his attempts but his life’s goal is to take over a new body and start anew as a human. Never gonna happen though.

Jack Frost

Yet another serial killer conversion. A killer is genetic mutated into a killer snow man. Yeah, that’s right, if you haven’t seen this one, it’s as silly as it sounds and twice as awesome. It’s amazing that a killer can adapt to new physical changes and still manage to work a way to kill people.  

Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey

Bill and Ted die, they go to hell, they go to heaven and they play games with Death in between. They refuse to stay dead because they have princesses to save and evil thems to destroy, so death grants them life again. Bill and Ted return and save the world and win the Battle of the Bands. Rock! 

Bonus movies:

Halloween: Resurrection and Alien: Resurrection, Why? Mainly because they have the word “resurrection” in the title so that’s gotta count for something. Then of course, take any zombie movie out of your pile then bam, you have yourself a resurrection flick. You can thank me later.

I’m pretty sure there’s a bunch more I couldn’t think of at this spur of the moment post idea and I just woke up so that’s my excuse! Let me know if you have anything to add to the list.

Have a great Easter all!

  1. First of all, best Easter blog idea ever. Much better than the one I'm planning, which will likely include something about peeps :/

    Second, a few days ago I watched a movie called “Jolly Roger: Massacre at Cutter's Cove. Not only does it fit wonderfully in this list, but its something I think you'll enjoy.

    Just an Easter idea/present thing from me to you 🙂

    When I read the title “Resurrection Movies,” I thought you'd be recommending a lot of zombie flicks. =P My bad!

    About RoboCop: watching it a few years ago, I also noticed that Murphy was coming across as a Christ figure, and so I was pleased to learn that Paul Veerhoeven (sp?) was on the record for saying that the Christian symbolism in the film is indeed deliberate.

    My personal opinion is that Murphy's transformation from man to cyborg is a “mashup” of the Incarnation and the Resurrection, rather than being a clean presentation of either.

    Anyway, interesting set of recommendations as always, Nicki! =) I'll have to go through your archives to find last year's Horror bunnies, though, as I'll bet they're hysterical!

    Happy Easter!

  3. Softy- I just put in on my Netflix, I'll let you know when I watch it 🙂

    Enbrethiliel- If you click on the “bunny clips” in the post, it will take your right there!

    And Jaded, my eyes were completely opened on the Robocop thing
