The scientist Charles and Marissa receive some objects and a skull from an ancient Indian cemetery, and while cleaning a vase, they are attacked and murdered by a mysterious being, the Skeleton Man. Then, a military squad commanded by Captain Leary seeks out two groups of four soldiers each that vanished in the jungle. They face the Skeleton Man, shooting him while he kills each soldier. Then the Skeleton Man goes to a power plant, and Captain Leary explodes the facility destroying the supernatural being. Written by

In Germany, the movie is tagged as a comedy, and not as a horror film. The advertising slogan on the DVD package announces "Here lives the spirit of Ed Wood". See more »

Staff Sgt. Oberron:
Listen. No cars, no planes... no birds. That's what the first men heard. That's what the last men will hear... just the wind blowing through the trees, and the world turning.

The final credits have started to roll when suddenly they scroll back and a final shot of Skeleton Man on his horse is inserted. The credits then start over. See more »
This was so bad, I want God to give me an extra two hours of life having had to sit through it.
First off, the acting was uniformly bad. There was barely a plot, unless "Shaggy dog story with a guy in a rain poncho and skeleton mask instead of a dog" counts.
The editing was was all over the place, and the slow-mo shots of the "gore" (red corn syrup flying through the air--doubtless flung using a spoon) got irritating after the tenth time, and infuriating after the hundredth time.
I like Michael Rooker. He's done some good work. This was not good. This was less than good. And by that, I mean that it sucked. Hard.
For god's sake, don't watch this movie.
