Editorial Reviews

On their last weekend together, Megan and Abby Graves are lost in a remote part of the Arizona desert where they are lured to Skull City Mine, an abandoned mine town. But they soon learn 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, all-out battle for survival against unspeakable horrors – both human and supernatural. Can they unlock the terrifying secrets of Skull City in time to save themselves, or will they become the latest in a long line of victims?

Format: DVD
The Graves is one of those movies that decided it's already a success before it was written, produced, or filmed. It has the air of shameless promotion about it, like when the Graves sisters (gorgeous Clare Grant as Megan and cute younger sister Abby played by Jillian Murray) fawn over comic books and then lean over the counter in low-cut shirts. Nobody's looking at the comic books for long.

If you're wondering what the heck is going on - and it will take you awhile if you're not a fan of Brian Pulido - this is the author's first film. He's actually the creator of such comic books as Evil Ernie and Lady Death. Which explains the cleavage, but little else.

Hotter sister Megan is moving on to a big career in New York City and the girls are out for one last fling before they are separated by distance and success. So after lounging around comic book shops in tight clothes, they visit a tourist trap at the abandoned Skull City Mine. There's nothing believable about these two: not their relationship, hobbies, or acting.

The sisters stumble across a cult dedicated to what seems like a fundamentalist cult, complete with hand-waving Reverend Abraham Stockton (Tony Todd). Todd is at a loss as how to emulate a fire-and-brimstone preacher - he comes off awkwardly stilted even in his "divinely inspired" moments. Of course, the entire cult he leads is actually following some demonic force. I think. It's hard to tell.

There are some interesting special effects. Every time someone dies, there's an awful racket of screams and wails. There's really no explanation for this (the souls are all going to hell, I guess), and not much of a reaction from the characters. You begin to wonder if they can hear what the audience is hearing...

There's no conceivable way "The Graves" could have been made well, so you might as well enjoy it for how bad it is. There isn't a brain a work in any of its eighty-eight minutes, but it goes through them so cheerfully that I actually found myself enjoying the experience. I shouldn't be recommending it, but unfortunately, I have a terrible tendency to like movies that clearly aren't any good (I may be the only person to have given a passing grade to "10,000 B.C."). Scoff all you want - the cast and crew were obviously having fun while making this movie. And why not? It gave them license to indulge not only in silliness, but also in cheap gimmicks, not the least of which is a relentlessly contrived plot and that most reliable of horror movie clichés: A small town populated by religious fanatics.

It's called Unity, and it's located somewhere in the deserts of Arizona. This is where we find sisters and comic book fans Megan and Abby Graves (Clare Grant and Jillian Murray), who wanted nothing more than to spend their last weekend together (Megan is moving to New York to pursue a career in marketing). They stumble onto Skull City, now a roadside attraction but once a thriving gold mine; behind its tacky, ramshackle façade of wood and rock lies a secret, one that, the sisters soon discover, brings death and apparent damnation to unsuspecting tourists. Roaming the site is a blacksmith (Shane Stevens), who at one point actually tries to calm his victim: "I take no pleasure in this," he says while clutching a bloody hammer. "I answer to a higher power!"

The sisters then run into Caleb Atwood, who says that his friends call him Cookie. We know he can't possibly be sane. Why? Because he's played by Bill Moseley, the go-to guy for maniacal horror movie weirdoes.

To say this is a horrible movie would be too kind. No plot. Bad female lead "acting". Waste of Tony Todd and Bill Moseley. Pathetic editing. Worthless photography. "Production" value is nowhere. "Special Effects?" I love how the girl hacks Bill too death yet not a drop of blood gets on her. I love how these girls are in the Arizona heat and nowhere during the film do they perspire or even look like they were sweating.! There is a book on Amazon called, "Your Screenplay sucks!", Brian Pulido really needs to read it. And having that many "extras". Seriously? You want us all to see how much worthless "talent" it took to make this piece of garbage? Brian went to "film " school. He should've taken a writing or art class so he at least could've found out before that he can't write, direct or produce anything of value for movie watchers. The ONLY thing I can say this heap of a "movie" has any value for is that any professors in film schools should let their students see this as what "NOT" too do ,as far as film making goes. A student should be warned prior to viewing but also encouraged to see this is how you, "write", "produce", "direct", Edit" a truly, truly Worthless film. Brian Pulido needs to get a different career. Immediately!

(In the generous spirit of the Halloween season, this is more like 2.5 stars.) I don't know why, but I can sometimes be a real sucker for dumb movies and when I read the reviews for this one, I knew it would fit the bill and so I had no expectations whatsoever and it's probably for that reason that I actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It's still silly, of course, and any laughs seem mostly unintentional, especially toward the end. It's also fraught with the typical horror clichés, like the weird family and the casually strolling killer who somehow catches up to the victim, even though they've been running. Some things are never fully explained, either, like, um, the basic premise (history of the mine, the origin of the stinky demon force, why the main family is tasked with killing for it), but if you know going in you have to chuck sense out the window, as is the case with a lot of horror movies, you might be able to appreciate at least parts of it. Except for a couple of people toward the end, I didn't think the acting was as bad as some other reviewers do, either, and I enjoyed the performances of Bill Moseley and an over-the-top Tony Todd. The title sequence is also well done. ***SPOILER ALERT***: I think this would have been a far better movie if it had focused on the dynamic between who I thought was the most interesting character, Jonah, a man driven to kill but who gets no enjoyment out of it, and his brother, who takes great pleasure in it. Unfortunately, Jonah is killed too soon, and there is no interaction between the brothers.
