- Resurrection of Evil review by porky
Title is really silly and should be changed really. it has nothing much to do with what goes on .
For years I have thought it strange no one had ever made a movie about one of Americas Original Serial Killers,H H Holmes, and his Intricately put together box of tricks ,built in sliding panels ,moving walls,trap doors and gas chambers,his self built Hotel of Death.
It seemed a story ripe for the picking. The Chicago version of Jack the Ripper from the late Victorian era. Killing many more than Jack ever did yet somehow forgotten to much of the world.Skeletons of his victims sat in medical schools all over the states .
Finally a movie ,but sadly not the Treasure it could have been . it only really skims the original story as back history and builds a modern nonsense upon it .but at least its finally made it to screen.
Could have been much ,much better and more unusual but sadly we are given a bog standard slasher style movie in an apartment block instead.
Entertaining none the less. Grizzly , Gorey and somewhat Suspenseful. well worth a watch or two.
