Quotes

[first lines]
Mary Florescu: The dead have highways, running through the wasteland behind our lives, bearing an endless traffic of departed souls. They can be heard in the broken places of our world, through cracks made out of cruelty, violence, and depravity. They have sign posts, these highways, and crossroads and intersections. And it is at these intersections where the dead mingle, and sometimes spill over into our world.

Needs work but not bad as it is
4 March 2013 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Driven to arrive at a secluded mansion, a paranormal investigator and a psychic find that the house sits at a location where souls pass through to the afterlife and that the dead want their story told but require human skin in order to tell it to others.

This here had a lot of potential but ultimately it really let itself down big time with several really big flaws that shouldn't have been there. The biggest blunder comes in the first minutes of the film where it gives off the secret right away, so it's not exactly a surprise what happens within the film, building up to something that's fairly obvious. Also, the film's incredibly long running time leaves a lot to be desired, as this one has a lot of useless running time that could've been trimmed without losing anything of any importance, and there's several plot lines that could've benefited greatly from this due to the removal or trimming done. Still, the theme of what's going on, the outstanding, if limited, gore effects to realize them and a rather intense last half where it's confined to the large Gothic mansion really bring this one up a notch. Not too bad, but could use some minor work.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and frequent Male Nudity.
