Product Description

Present day. Arizona. Megan and Abby Graves are inseparable sisters. Megan is a self-assured ass kicker. Abby is a caustic, Hot Topic Goth afraid of her own shadow. They couldn t be less alike, but they share a life-long obsession with comics, pop culture and rock n roll. Simply put, they are beautiful geeks. In a few days, Megan will start a new job in New York. To send her off in style, the sisters go on a trip to uncharted Arizona in search of kitchy roadside attractions. Instead, they re lured to Skull City Mine, an abandoned mine town. But Skull City is anything but abandoned - and there s no way out. The sisters are now prey, forced to unleash their most primitive instincts in a desperate fight for survival against unspeakable horrors - both human and supernatural: Caleb aka Pig Man (Bill Moseley) the twisted, wife-seeking serial killer, Reverend Abraham Stockton (Tony Todd), the insane leader of The Church of Devout Ascension, Deacon Luke (D. Randall Blythe), the church s enforcer who is quite possibly a cannibal, Darlene Atwood (Amanda Wyss), the seemingly friendly waitress at Screamer s diner who delivers tourists to their doom, Jonah Lee Atwood (Shane Stevens) - the ruthlessly efficient, reluctant killer and Mama Heinbecker (Barbara Glover) - the cold-hearted ticket taker who s handy with knitting needles. When Megan suffers a mortal wound, Abby must save her sister, but to do so, she must confront her fears and unlock the mystery of Skull City alone. Can Abby survive Skull City s threats? Can she rescue Megan or are the Graves doomed to a fate much worse than death? Legendary independent comic book creator, Brian Pulido (Lady Death, Evil Ernie) makes his feature debut with an intense, action-packed, mind-bender of a horror flick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, entertaining and lots of shocks 3 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
Nothing new in the storyline but I enjoyed this as the charcters were all cool and the story has lots of twists. Just when I thought it had finished it continued to make a great finish, something most films are unable to achieve. Lots of gaps, unexplained happenings but overall this film had me interested to the end. Never a boring minute.Its fun, entertaining and I liked it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Send you to an early Grave 7 April 2010
Format:DVD
Bill Moseley and Tony Todd were enough to get my attention here, never mind the talents of Clare Grant and Jillian Murray as the Graves sisters. Brian Pulido has pulled together quite a cast, but it seems he didn't have a plan once he'd got them. A basic plot of cat n mouse set in the Arizona desert sees the two sister hunted by the crazy religious hicks.

Has it all been done before, and have we anything original here? Hills have Eyes, Texas Chainsaw. What's the real point here? OK, so there is a supernatural element thrown in for good measure, but for me, this didn't really work. The religious emphasis is what carries this film, although it takes a good hour to really get to the point at which stage Tony Todd steals the show, with the help of a swarm of flies and a gas which turns people into crazy things, demonically possessed.
Moseley is brilliant, but it doesn't seem like he's getting any kind of direction. He's read the script, wind him up and let him go, and he's excellent. I can't say as much to Grant and Murray who fall at the first hurdle. I'm not blaming the girls as they show real presence, but without the encouragement, we have a stage school performance from the pair. Actions and reactions from the Graves are crazy at times but mostly unrealistic. This is a problem with plot, and direction more than their ability which is misguided.

Misguided is a word which not only sums up the direction towards the actors, but also the plot as a whole. It's all over the place. It could have been quite an interesting piece if kept a little simpler, more along the lines of Wickerman meets Chainsaw with Christianity. But, take Todd and Moseley out of this film and you have even less. Never mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Average horror but still entertaining 23 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
No one plays unhinged quite like Bill Moseley. He absolutely steals the film and makes it his own. His character is very close to his Otis character from House of 1000 corpses and Devils rejects. He has all the best lines, scenes and to be forthright saves this from becoming just another b-movie. Clare Grant and Jillian Murray play a pair of sisters on a road trip; all is well until they visit the Skull City abandoned mine tourist attraction. But the mine and the folks of Skull City harbour terrible, worrisome secret. Will the girls get out alive? I can't really decide if the film wants to be a ghost film or straight up hillbilly slasher? I enjoyed the old school stalk and slash but not so much the reason why the crazy religious locals were killing outsiders. I don't want to give away too much, let's just say a demon God is involved. There are some conspicuous plot holes but the plot is thin to start with so I guess you can over look it. Though this is an average played by numbers horror. I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Some nice gory deaths and half decent special effects for a film on a small budget. Look out for Tony Todd in one of his latest cameos.
