Alternate Versions

The movie was originally titled 'Grey Knight' and was screened at some festivals in 1993. Allegedly, after some previews (most notably one for USA network executives), the producer (Brad Krevoy) was led to believe the movie was "too artsy" and ordered it re-cut. The producer's cut was released as 'The Killing Box' in Europe and as 'Ghost Brigade' in America (though the laserdisc 'Ghost Brigade' is 'Grey Night' with only its title changed). The director's cut was released on DVD in 2005 under its original title 'Grey Knight'. See more »

Great civil war tale
24 May 2004 | by pumayeSee all my reviews

This is a rare gem, probably covered by dust on many video retailers shelves. It is a civil war tale mixed by supernatural tones (with a sort of demonic unit, made up by deceased Union and confederate soldiers possessed by a demonic entity that had reached America a couple of century before on a slaver ship), with a very good cast (Adrian Pasdar, Corbin Bernsen and even a cameo by Martin Sheen - that in the same year was General Lee in Turner Television masterpiece Gettysburg) and a script that is better than you may think for such a low budget production. Director Hickenlooper was able to get all the horrors of the real war (in particular during the first minutes of the movie, when you see the atrocity of the Union field hospital) and mix them with the demonic ones. All in all, a very good movie that is, as usual, mostly unknown to the masses of horror fans out there. search it and enjoy.
