Slave traders bring back an evil voodoo entity that is accidentally freed by the Confederate army during the Civil War. The entity possesses the bodies of the dead soldiers to create an army of its own bent on conquest, using the corpses of both the North and South. Written by
Surprisingly effective Civil War supernatural thriller.
I didn't expect all that much watching 'The Killing Box', but was surprised at just how involving and interesting this Civil War zombie tale turned out to be. Corbin Bernsen ('L.A. Law') and Adrian Pasdar ('Near Dark') co-star as former friends turned enemies who have to join together to hunt down a mysterious group of renegade soldiers. Ray Wise ('Twin Peaks') is fine as a hard-ass Colonel, and the supporting cast includes Martin Sheen, Billy Bob Thornton and a couple of Arquettes. The film is not without a few flaws, which presumably are from post-production editing (a director's cut under the title 'Ghost Brigade' is apparently available), but overall this is an effective and atmospheric thriller that is well worth tracking down.
