Trivia

The junk yard seen in the movie is real. Several years prior to the film's production, a yard worker was crushed to death by a piece of heavy machinery which was being driven by another employee to move junk cars. Rumors soon arose that the junk yard was haunted by his ghost. Film production had already begun before anyone involved with the movie "learned" of this legend. As a "precautionary measure", a local priest was asked to perform a blessing on the filming location. In appreciation, the production company made a charitable donation to the priest's church. Nothing out of the ordinary happened at first, but it was soon reported that "unexplained lights" were seen floating around the empty set in the late evening and at night. Also several windows of junk cars mysteriously shattered for no apparent reason during the daytime while film crew members were nearby. The priest returned to perform blessings each morning at sunrise. He also went to the nearby cemetery where the yard worker was buried and anointed the stone entrance-way with holy oil (the act of "Holy Unction"). In the Orthodox Christian tradition of "Almsgiving", food and new clothing was purchased and subsequently donated to several local charities near the junk yard. Oddly, no other "unusual incidents" were reported during the production. See more »

Not bad for a Skiffy Movie
10 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A little better than average for a Sci-Fi channel movie.

Now, stop me if you heard this one before. A group of college friends decides to take a shortcut through the woods on the way to a Halloween party, whereupon their truck breaks down, and the inbred inhabitants of a small town set upon them. (Amazingly, the Skiffy Channel had to film this in Romania, because apparently they couldn't find one of the inbred redneck towns they seem to think dot the countryside of rural America.)

The discover that the Headless Horseman of legend must collect seven heads every Halloween, in order to preserve the town of accursed souls.

Now, this is pretty much the plot of every bad horror movie you've ever seen. What makes this one better than most? I think the characters were more interesting than they usually are in films like this, which is good. You had Richard Moll playing the proprietor of the general store, which added some comedy to the film.

Overuse of CGI for special effects, but the plot held together reasonably well. Or maybe I've seen so many bad ones that an okay one doesn't offend as much as they normally do.
