Storyline

In 1993, Solvay, NY Deputies responding to a missing persons report, found the body of missing James Connelly (18) and the body of Joe Gainard (60's). All evidence pointed to Joe as the killer of James, but before he could leave the scene, Joe died of natural causes. Almost as soon as the bodies were discovered, people began disappearing for no reason other than they were at the railroad tracks, between Railroad Markers 313-330. Ten years later, Michele Connelly, James's older sister and New York Journal Reporter returns from New York City to investigate what actually happened to her brother and the more than thirty people who have disappeared since. From the beginning, her questions and attempts to find the truth are road blocked by local Sheriff Pete Scoggins. His impression upon Michele is that what happened is in the past and it is time to move on. Michele instinctively knows he is hiding something, but what?

Quotes

Michele Connelly: There is no separate soul, or god. Man's action is merely a response to personal compulsions, not from a higher power. The truly rational will realise this while others will not. Death will not offer us a place to go, whether we're truly good or evil. Though the truly evil and disturbed individuals may find that the mystery of the cosmos bends in their favour, as rational is neither there nor here. There is no afterlife, only afterdeath. Life's energy will transform, and the being will exhaust ...

Great movie!
2 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got to see this movie last summer when it was screened in Syracuse, NY. My friend invited me to go as it was filmed in the area so I thought it would be fun as not much gets shot around here. I didn't know anything about the movie only that it starred the blonde chick from Wrong Turn 2.

The movie wasn't 100% completed but that didn't bother me much. The film follows a woman (Erica Leersen) when she travels back to her hometown to try and find out what happened to her brother and other people that have disappeared in the area.

The film opens with a great scene. Very exciting and really grabs you from the start! The acting is especially good! Kudos to Miss Leersen who was fantastic in her role of Michelle. There are some great stand out scenes in the film with her. I really liked the drama aspect to the film. There is some emotional scenes in the film such as the ones with Michelle and her Mom who is in a nursing home suffering from Alzeimers. Also very good in the film was Ben who plays Michelle's friend and the actor that played Joe was very creepy.

I really liked the cinematography which is really impressive towards the end of the movie. Speaking of the end of the movie - Wow! I really would like to talk about the ending but seeing as the films not been released yet I'm going to keep quiet. All I'm going to say is that the ending was AWESOME! I kinda got a bit bored 3/4 way into the movie but things quickly changed! So I highly recommend this film to everyone! Horror fans will really dig this but it will appeal to a lot of other people too. It has a great story and amazing ending! Erica fans will not want to miss this!
