Trivia

This film has been released under four different titles: "The Lost Brigade," "Ghost Brigade," "Grey. Knight" and "The Killing Box." See more »

Alternate Versions

In 'Grey Night', Harling (played by Adrian Pasdar) is a morphine addict and shoots up a few times. These scenes are shortened, but not absent in 'The Killing Box'. If you see him sitting alone by a tree, he's just used the needle. Many scenes and shots are shortened in 'The Killing Box' including reaction shots and anything that makes the members of the ghost brigade appear sympathetic. The ending of 'Grey Night' is much longer and shows the death of Billy Bob Thornton's character. See more »

Ghostly Horrors of the Civil War
20 March 2010 | by Vomitron_GSee all my reviews

The version I saw of this film, was called "The Killing Box" and this film had a whole damn lot of potential, but sadly isn't as great as it could've been. A civil-war movie mixed with a supernatural theme and a most peculiar cast (Adrian Pasdar, Corbin Bernsen, Ray Wise, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Sheen, David Arquette, Matt LeBlanc,...). It really is a challenge spotting all of them. It's also hard to pinpoint where exactly the movie comes short. The flaws are there, I just can't really pinpoint them. Apparently a lot of the movie ended on the cutting room floor in post-production, so that could explain quite a bit. But there seems to be a director's cut with a much longer running time out there, under the name "Ghost Brigade". In this version the main characters have a lot more depth and should be more interesting. Even the unstoppable ghost brigade should have much more screen time and background-story in this longer version. So someone release this director's cut version on DVD, and I just might pick it up.
