Storyline

Kristof, an eccentric rich kid, tricks his high school friends into getting back together for a reunion of sorts, under the pretense of a funeral. The group of twenty-somethings is forced to spend the night in an old abandoned witches' prison. During a Ouija Board séance, the schoolmates accidentally unearth three dead executioners from their graves. A little confused, and quite a bit angry, the Crypt Keepers initiate a killing spree that will only end when everyone is dead. Fortunately, the schoolmates all wore black. Too bad it's for their own funerals... Written by ImortalKandy <imortalkandy@aol.com>

Worst Movie Ever
11 February 2001 | by Bizzy39See all my reviews

This is by far the worst movie I have ever seen. Bad cinematography, bad acting, bad make-up. Worst of all was the story line, that wasn't there! Maybe if the movie had more of a budget it may have been a success. It definitely needed to be re-written at least one more time to get a single story line that you could follow and understand. Go find it and see for yourself!
