Storyline

After seeing his divorced mother being electrocuted in a freakish film-set accident, thirteen-year-old, Jeff Matthews, and his father, Chase, move to his hometown of Ludlow, Maine, to make a fresh start. However, as Jeff struggles to leave the bad memories behind him, his only friend, Drew Gilbert, tells him about the ancient Indian burial site with the otherworldly reanimating powers, eager to test it on his dog, Zowie. Indeed, the myth is true; nevertheless, what would happen if Jeff buried his beloved mother's dead body in the graveyard's stony soil? Can the dead truly return from the grave?

soundtrack?
1 December 2007 | by SpunkY_PunkSee all my reviews

OK this movie has some great music but why the hell not a soundtrack? i been trying for years to find songs i have found some like the song playing when the bullies take Jeff's cat and go on the bike chase the one right after I've got spies by drama Rama... and the song played at his moms funeral heres a list of songs i have gathered through out the years

fading away- Jan king ( going to Barrie Zowey) I've got spies- drama Rama ( at school) shitlist- L7 Reverence- Jesus and Mary chain ( the part where Gus is chasing Amanda and drew in the car) poison heart- the Ramones ( end credits) gush forth my tears- Miranda sex garden ( the end where his mom is burning up in the bed yelling dead is better)
