Resurrection represents the ability of a deceased individual to return to life. This process may occur through either scientific means or through occult ritualism, but may also occur as a result of unexplained phenomena. In some cases, the individual is restored fully, in others, they are resurrected as some undead entity. This phenomena occurs mostly in media involving supernatural or paranormal forces. Zombie fiction is the most basic example of seeing the dead brought back to life.
