Just in time for the Fall, Scream Factory, our favorite resource for Horror and Cult Films, will be releasing The Resurrected (1991). Personally, I have never seen this film, but it has a great cast and that perfect mix of crazy horror and visuals that make it so appealing in this modern error of ghost stories and failed reboots.
