Storyline

Present day. Arizona. Megan and Abby Graves are inseparable sisters that couldn't be less alike. Megan just graduated ASU with a marketing degree. She's a self-assured, naturally attractive rock chick with a black belt that she likes to use. Abby just barely graduated high school. She's a cute, Hot Topic Goth who's caustic and afraid of her own shadow. They share one thing: a life-long obsession with comics and pop culture. Simply put, they are beautiful geeks. In a few days, Megan will start a new job at in New York. To send her off in style, the sisters go on a wild, pop culture bender that includes a trip to uncharted Arizona in search of a kitchy roadside attraction. Instead, Megan and Abby happen on Skull City Mine, a weather-beaten, abandoned mine town converted into a self-guided tour. But Skull City harbors terrible, vexing secrets. It appears to be haunted. Its caretakers are murderous. Victims' souls are ripped from their bodies right before their eyes, and that's only the ... Written by Mischief Maker Studios, LLC.

The 80's called, they want this movie back.
14 February 2010 | by infomageSee all my reviews

Let's start at the beginning. After the beautiful co-stars endorse the director/writer's real life comic book, twice, we are treated to a screen hogging banner advertising a website. Needless to say, the credibility deficit was pretty humongous at this point. What follows is not only cliché hack and slash, it's old cliché. Let me guess: the writer/director has a mullet?

Seriously, if you can get around the obnoxious self promotion and style fax paux, you still won't find much of anything redeeming. The characters seem lumbersome and unmotivated, probably because they are, and the edit does little to take the edge off some seriously dry performances. Normally 'big character' actors like Todd and Mosely seem to waiting for direction through most of their scenes.
