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?

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!

When I first heard about this film I heard nothing but bad. So I thought it would be good to watch it myself so I can come to a proper decision myself. Well me and a few friends got together and watched it one evening. The opening credits of the film were excellent (a true highlight), but as the film began I quickly realized I wasn't in Kansas anymore, and my hope of understanding this OZ was futile indeed.
The Graves is a fusion of branches in the Horror genre. It attempts to blend "Slasher" film aspects with "Paranormal" aspects, but falls short of creating a convincing story for either. It seems rather jumbled throughout, and the background to the story is left quite empty, this can be good sometimes but in this case you find yourself grasping at air to understand what's happening.
There seems to be a lack of suspense throughout the films entirety and this is on the director. He chose far away shots typically for chase scenes and that absolutely kills action. Imagine watching a golf cart drive from afar and then imagine being in one, it feels much different doesn't it? and these are the consequences of those decisions the director made. The suspense really was non-existent, and I felt bored even during scenes where the hammer wielding murderer is chasing his victim.
The continuity of the film also is ripe with problems and I won't go into details, but there are things I think could have been saved by a better editor; but it's also distinctly possible that the editor didn't have all the shots he needed, and that fault would fall on the director's footage and or the writer's story.
The acting in the film wasn't spectacular and I say that because there were some alright moments on everybody's part.
