The two cuts differ in many ways: The director's cut ('Grey Night') is ten minutes longer. The two cuts have very different beginnings: 'Grey Night' begins with Civil War era photos and music, while 'The Killing Box' begins with a text intro explaining the military term "the killing box" and then a sepia-toned flashback of the first massacre at the creek.

Surprisingly effective Civil War supernatural thriller.
I didn't expect all that much watching 'The Killing Box', but was surprised at just how involving and interesting this Civil War zombie tale turned out to be. Corbin Bernsen ('L.A. Law') and Adrian Pasdar ('Near Dark') co-star as former friends turned enemies who have to join together to hunt down a mysterious group of renegade soldiers. Ray Wise ('Twin Peaks') is fine as a hard-ass Colonel, and the supporting cast includes Martin Sheen, Billy Bob Thornton and a couple of Arquettes. The film is not without a few flaws, which presumably are from post-production editing (a director's cut under the title 'Ghost Brigade' is apparently available), but overall this is an effective and atmospheric thriller that is well worth tracking down.
