Trivia

The church scene was filmed in Baker Memorial United Methodist Church, which is a few blocks from the Hotel Baker in downtown St. Charles. Both buildings were built by Col. Edward Baker, a prominent local citizen. Col. Baker also helped fund the construction of the St. Charles Municipal Center, the white-tower building that is prominently featured in the film.

One of the best low budget flicks in a long time.
8 October 2011 | by spent1See all my reviews

I had to see this movie since I live about 1 mile from munger road which is actually in Bartlett Illinois. The road and the myths and legends are known by many in the area. The scenery is very true to life and the acting is very good! Munger road, the railroad, and the St Charles scarecrow festival and surroundings all pretty realistic. I expected much less and was pleasantly surprised. It is spooky as is the road at times for some people. It's not a slice em up movie but it does really capture your attention and is pretty gripping at times. The camera work and sound was very well done for a low budget movie. The plot was well thought out as to leave a bit to the imagination as well as sequels. It's not that it does not have an ending so much as it has a future like a soap opera for creepy movies. I hope there is a sequel and I don't believe more money and bigger budget would even help a sequel. It was pretty cool with the realism minus all the Hollywood standard unrealistic girls falling down when chased, why didn't he shoot? kind of stuff. Kind of refreshing for once. I really liked it all in all. It was just a local director tired of the same old same old in my view. A really good job about the myths and legends as well as a plot of a returning criminal make it well worth the ticket.
