an old friend's funeral from a car
accident, former school friends named
Harris McKay (Dominic Purcell), Kira
Hayden (Josie Maran) and Sid Vance
(Marcus Thomas) decides to break into a
cemetary after dark , and after Sid
reads a mysterious incantation he finds
on one of the nearby tombstones, they
dance on the graves. Soon, the three of
them find themselves haunted by three
different ghosts whose graves they
desecrated and have had criminal records
on their own during their lifetime.
They hear sounds from their homes and
evil spirits attacking as well. Then,
they run to a couple of paranormal
investigator's named Vincent Cochet
(Tchéky Karyo) and his assistant Frances
Culpepper (Megahn Perry) to try to help
them break the curse they imposed on
themselves before the next full moon when
they will be killed by the ghosts wrath.
However, they may be on their way on
their death bed when they try to put a
stop to this in which this angers the
spirits and will try to slay them one by
one or turn them into evil spirits as
Many good camera takes on Sid Vance standing on a tombstone

dead along with good camera angle shots

stairs and into the bedroom focusing on
both Allison and Harris sleeping

like along with a good shot on him

Bottom line is that I enjoy haunted house type
of films and had to tell you this one
really seems like a tribute to those old
school types like Poltergeist
but with killings and more jumps too. It had nice haunting effects to the story
ogf the film as that's what we need for a
type like this one. I enjoyed the
beginning of the film when someone reads
a poem of the dead which made me wonder
if the dead will rise or not which keeps
you glued to the set to see what happens. It's about time we had an original flick
like this than so many bloody remakes we
spot nowadays and if only more people had
creative ideas making films like this one
would really make horror films worth
checking out again. For anyone who enjoys hauntings but are
very fictional and more so than Poltergeist
as well as liking ghoulish make up on
evil spirits attacking then you
definetely want to check this one out in
which you won't be disappointed.
The acting is quite good as
lead actor Dominic Purcall (Harris McKay) showed
a great masculine attitude and looked
great with his big guy type of role and a
nice seriousness to his part and
expressing a nice calmness to what he
Josie Maran (Kira Hayden) brought a nice tense
attitude after encountering a haunting
and being put in a ward as well as
showing a good calmness when she helps
everyone try to put a stop to the
haunting in which she shows nice
versatality to her role. She was great
playing a haunting figure too acting
violent and aggressive.
Clare Kramer (Allison Mitchell) was another one who
does well acting aggressive and cries
well on set as well as getting physical
when she needed to. She showed a nice
adventureous part throughout the whole
story in which I give her a thumbs up to
her performance like the forst two I
mentioned. She does well screaming
in hysterics when an arm grabs her.
Marcus Thomas (Sid Vance) does his role well as
a goofball type who has an attitude when
he wants to as well as not taking stuff
seriously plus he had the right look for
Megahn Perry (Frances Culpepper) knows her stuff as a
paranormal investigator showing a perfect
seriousness to her part in the film
making her role very believeable too. She
does well crying on set when needed to
which is a plus with her performance.
There's a blanket over a
corpse with blood starting to flow from
We spot an open slit throat
An axe is impaled in someone's head
There's some good rumbling
music along with many banging sounds.
There's also nice low orchestral music
which sounded very strong and well done.
We hear the odd grumbling music with
sounds very terrorising like all done by Joseph
