When a sixteen year-old boy and his two young siblings set off on a quest to find their missing parents, their search leads them to a ghost town in the middle of the desert. They soon discover that this is no ordinary tourist spot. In fact, according to the maps, it doesn't exist at all! Finding their way into this mysterious place, the kids must confront the sinister force that dwells beneath it in order to rescue their parents - and save themselves.

bad
11 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

too predictable, the plot was very uninspired, the special effects look so bad, that even my friends and i had better zero dollar effects in our home movies, the ending was gross. i understand this movie may look innocent, but they had broke copyright laws, too, as in , the trailer features quiet riots "terrified" and the movies budget no money for the rights. yes, i did waste my time watching this movie, and i regretted it. now to be honest, for what it was, it wasn't the worst, i mean at least some the demonic voices are decent, but this movie has no place in history, period. now this is without a doubt benjamin carrs worst movie, not to say kraa wasn't bad, but at least that one was good enough to have a cult following, but anyways, this movie has nothing to offer, and im so gld its not on DVD!
