Storyline

Present day. Arizona. Megan and Abby Graves are inseparable sisters that couldn't be less alike. Megan just graduated ASU with a marketing degree. She's a self-assured, naturally attractive rock chick with a black belt that she likes to use. Abby just barely graduated high school. She's a cute, Hot Topic Goth who's caustic and afraid of her own shadow. They share one thing: a life-long obsession with comics and pop culture. Simply put, they are beautiful geeks. In a few days, Megan will start a new job at in New York. To send her off in style, the sisters go on a wild, pop culture bender that includes a trip to uncharted Arizona in search of a kitchy roadside attraction. Instead, Megan and Abby happen on Skull City Mine, a weather-beaten, abandoned mine town converted into a self-guided tour. But Skull City harbors terrible, vexing secrets. It appears to be haunted. Its caretakers are murderous. Victims' souls are ripped from their bodies right before their eyes, and that's only the ... Written by Mischief Maker Studios, LLC.

Killers look around and around for a pair of shallow Graves.
28 May 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

It's always easy to spot a movie that's thinly-veiled wish-fulfilment on the part of the director and/or writer and The Graves would seem to fall into that category.

Here's the story: two highly attractive sisters (played by Clare Grant and Jillian Murray) enjoy comic books and going to see a goth horror band. One is about to leave for the big city so, before their separation, they take a trip into nowhereville and end up running from their lives from a bunch of people who are all plotting together to get them killed.

With a distinct lack of scares, tension, decent gore (one or two moments score points but they're too few and far between) and talent this movie ranks as one of the lamest modern horror movies I've watched recently. And that takes some doing, considering the dross I sit through.

There are a few faces here that will please horror fans. Amanda Wyss is okay in her small role and Bill Moseley is fun, despite all of his scenes overstaying their welcome by quite a margin, but it has to be said that Tony Todd (playing a twisted preacher) is just all kinds of godawful. Over the top, and not in a good way, he made me feel embarrassed for him every time he was on screen.

The two leading ladies are easy on the eye but nothing more, they certainly don't have much acting talent between them.

Writer-director Brian Pulido can only blame himself for taking a lame idea and making it even worse with every choice he made. The whole thing is just boring and that, to me, is often the worst thing for any movie to be.
