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?

By Michael J. Tresca VINE VOICE on January 6, 2011

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.

I've seen this movie before & I didn't like it. I should've paid better attention to the synopsis or they should be written with a little more detail. This still doesn't negate the fact that this movie is a snoozer. The acting is horrible & I'm sure you can find better things on which to spend your hard earned money.

Worst of all the After Dark films - tolerable only because they were fortunate enough to cast Clare Grant, who is at least stunningly hot. The film itself is devoid of thrills and chills and scares, the plot is tedious and insufferably boring, and the acting is sub-par - and all of this can be laid at the feet of the director. How he managed to botch an otherwise successful franchise is beyond me, but I think he was just thrust into the director's chair a few films sets too early.

One of these days a horror movie screen-writer is gonna use a religion besides Christianity to feed the genre's need for counterculture fanatics and set the entire industry on its head (ya... and maybe I'll be crowned king of the gypsies ). "The Graves" is pretty bad (although it's no "Manos Hands of Fate") but In the midst of atrocious acting, amateurish CGI blood-fountains and fly-swarms looms a glimmer of talent like an island in a sea of cheese (i.e. Clare Grant) where if the show had been all about her fighting bizarre death cultists might have turned out not that bad. Speaking of cult, apparently director Brian Pulido thinks he's created something with potential in attaining that status but I think it's most likely destined for an edited run on Syfy channel and then the garbage heap (six of one...).
