A graduate student preparing his thesis on mythology leads his friends on a research expedition to an old plantation estate on the outskirts of the Big Easy. The site is reputed to mysteriously cause madness and death to all who enter it.
The graduation student Mark is developing a monograph work about contemporary myths, and he interviews the psychiatrist Dr. Theodore Rosen, who was treating Carl Bryce, a deranged teenager that killed his parents twenty years ago. The body of Carl has never been found and there is an urban legend that the spot is a cursed place since slavery times, causing madness and death to those that trespass the area. Mark invites his friends Eric, Tyler, Kristy Goodman and Sharon to help him in his research in the old real estate. Once there, a mysterious killer starts to execute and chase the group, with the survivors trying to escape alive. Written by

I have seen so many horror films and while I was desperately trying to find something new that I had not seen, I came across this little gem. No spoilers here. All I want to comment on is the fact that this horror film is the first one of its kind in awhile to have not only good acting, but above average acting. I was extremely surprised to see how solid the acting was in this film. There are four people in particular who were really good in this. The two female leads and the two guys who play brother's in this film were just fantastic. The film as a whole just tells a good story and incorporates believable performances with solid film-making. It really is a solid film.
