The Graves is a horror film due for release in 2010. Described as a "supernatural survival shocker," it is written and directed by veteran comic book creator Brian Pulido and produced by the Ronalds Brothers.[1]

Plot

The story centers on two sisters (Clare Grant and Jillian Murray) who visit the Skull City Mine roadside attraction in the desert. Their plight turns into a fight for survival against menaces both human and supernatural.[2]

On their last weekend together, Megan and Abby Graves become lost in a remote part of the Arizona desert where they are lured to Skull City, an abandoned mine town. But Skull City is anything but abandoned—and there’s no way out.

The sisters are now prey, forced to unleash their most primitive instincts in a desperate, fight for survival against unspeakable horrors—both human and supernatural:

Caleb aka "Pig Man" (Bill Moseley) the twisted, wife-seeking serial killer, Reverend Abraham Stockton (Tony Todd), the insane leader of The Church of Devout Ascension, Deacon Luke (D. Randall Blythe), the church’s enforcer who is quite possibly a cannibal, Darlene Atwood (Amanda Wyss), the seemingly friendly waitress at Screamer’s diner who delivers tourists to their doom, Jonah Lee Atwood (Shane Stevens) - the ruthlessly efficient, reluctant killer and “Mama” Heinbecker (Barbara Glover) – the cold-hearted ticket taker who’s “handy” with knitting needles.

Can Megan and Abby unlock the terrifying secrets of Skull City in time to save themselves or will they become the latest in a long line of victims?[3].
