About the Movie
From Focus Features, the premiere global brand in original and daring cinema, comes Focus World. Charged with finding the most exciting new voices in international and independent film, Focus World is proud to bring you Resurrect Dead, the real-life thriller straight out of its award-winning debut at the Sundance Film Festival. For decades, mysterious messages in the form of colorful “tiles” have appeared, pasted on the streets of major cities up and down the western hemisphere. Containing the same bizarre, unsettling message, which seems to concern resurrecting the world’s dead, most people walk over them without a thought – until now. Justin Duerr, long obsessed with the tiles, has begun a quest to unearth both their origins and meaning. But as he digs deeper, and the truth starts to be revealed, he’ll discover a secret far more complex, surreal – and closer to home – than he ever imagined.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Though their quarry eventually appears to be a model of paranoia and prejudice, it's the thrill of the hunt that keeps "Resurrect Dead" compelling.
Fresh: Entertaining as a sleuthing expedition though amateurish as filmmaking.
Rotten: Doc about an urban art enigma strains to maintain suspense.
Fresh: Resurrect Dead works splendidly as a threadbare urban mystery, teasing out details and complications without withholding too much information.
Absolute Crap, 100% FakeUmentry
Devoid of any value or truth, shame on you Jonny! Ok Peace out, Obama2012!
as good as, if not more entertaining, than Exit Thru The Gift Shop'
if u love the urban legend-provoking genre of street art, u will thrill to this very well made and perfectly structured documentary. it is imbued with a poignant sincerity as it investigates the bizarre, genuine and very, very mysterious phenom of the 'toynbee idea' tiles. effing brilliant w extremely likable protagonists. caution- this is an utterly unique journey. here be monsters (& real-life suspense).
this is a story about authentic passion & and true compulsion, maybe even madness. wow
but what do i know. i've only been a director for twenty years. i'm still learning.
The real mystery is...
... how am I going to get my $3.99 back for renting this documentary. It is completely boring. I did in fact fall asleep while watching it, but soldiered through the rest of it before my rental period expired. Do not waste your time or money on this documentary. Royalties will just go toward fueling the heroin addication of the of the documentary maker. There is nothing supernatural or mysterious about the underlying Toynbee Tile "mystery." It is the pathetic attempts of a crazy person trying to spread a ridiculous message. Even if you could re-assemble the "dead molecules" of a descest person, you would create a body that will fail. Those assembled molecules could NOT sustain life, that's why the person died. The only poeple that could be resurrected would have to have died from anything other than poor health. I'm just saying. Ugh, I've wasted enough time on this documentary as is. You dont know me, but take my word, this documentary is crap.
