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
The version I saw of this film, was called "The Killing Box" and this film had a whole damn lot of potential, but sadly isn't as great as it could've been. A civil-war movie mixed with a supernatural theme and a most peculiar cast (Adrian Pasdar, Corbin Bernsen, Ray Wise, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Sheen, David Arquette, Matt LeBlanc,...). It really is a challenge spotting all of them. It's also hard to pinpoint where exactly the movie comes short. The flaws are there, I just can't really pinpoint them. Apparently a lot of the movie ended on the cutting room floor in post-production, so that could explain quite a bit. But there seems to be a director's cut with a much longer running time out there, under the name "Ghost Brigade". In this version the main characters have a lot more depth and should be more interesting. Even the unstoppable ghost brigade should have much more screen time and background-story in this longer version. So someone release this director's cut version on DVD, and I just might pick it up.
