Sometimes families have to move to make a better life for themselves. Whether it be to get away from their past or an opportunity to make a living. Money can be a huge factor in a family packing up and moving to a new place as the jobs that are offered in their current areas are less than desirable. Even writers have to move, not because they are broke, but they need a new inspiration for their next work.
Ellison Oswalt needs to find out more about the latest unsolved murder investigation location and is taking his family along for the ride. With his wife and two children, Oswalt thinks that moving into the home of the recently deceased will be the best thing to get his next True-Crime novel going. Doing his research has always come easier for him when he stays around the locations of past murders and he is in desperate need of the money from another best seller. His wife Tracy is wary of the move, but has faith in her husband to get his work done in a timely manner so they can return to living the high life.
While unpacking, Oswalt finds a box full of 8mm film and a projector in the attic and brings it down to his office for review. Looking like home movies, he does not think there will be anything out of the ordinary when viewing it but is gravely mistaken. Watching the first film, he sees the previous family of the house running around and having fun, but then the film cuts to show them all being hung from the tree in the back yard. Oswalt is disturbed by the images before him but has to watch it again with his digital video camera to record all of the images. With move movies in the box, Oswalt starts to watch them all and they all hold the same criteria of family time, followed by horrific deaths.
Not feeling comfortable discussing what he has found with the local authorities, Oswalt keeps the tapes to himself and works harder on finding out what the connection is between them all. Seeing a strange symbol on each one of the films, he gets into contact with a professor at the local university that is able to decipher the symbols as one of a Pagan deity named Bughoul, the eater of children. When all of the research is done on these murders, one of the children is always missing from the family and that adds up to the professor’s conclusion. Trying to come to a more down to earth solution to this, Oswalt finds that he is in for more than a bestselling novel, but a battle for his own survival.
Sinister follows True-Crime novelist Ellison Oswalt as he tries to uncover the truth behind some heinous acts that he has seen on film. Working with a local deputy, he finds that all of these families are connected in one way, their addresses. With some strange things going on around the house, his daughter drawing some disturbing images on the walls along with his son experiencing terrible night terrors, he is staring to figure out that there may be more to this than just the murders, he may be being plagued by ghosts. With a ghostly figure showing up in the films as well, Oswalt is starting to wonder if he is losing his own mind while he finds solace in sleeping with his baseball bat to protect him.
A fun, well-acted film that takes you down the road of murder, hauntings, and possession. With the father of the family trying to protect his own ideals, along with his family, it makes this story very disturbing. Seeing someone who thinks that they are losing their mind and no one else believing what is going on, it makes you wonder what reality is and what is in your mind, just playing tricks on you. When another member of the family is starting to see what he is seeing, that is when the movie takes a turn for the dark and will leave you watching in disbelief. Stay Scared.

Money can mean different things to different people. Some people find it as a way to enjoy life, going out for every meal, traveling to far away exotic places and sharing with their loved ones to make sure they are all take care of. Other people can find it as a burden, always being asked for loans or handouts from people they know or don’t know. Whichever way people chose to view their personal holdings is their own business and no one should ever tell them what to do with it, especially family.
Paul and Aubrey Davidson are getting ready for their anniversary in their vacation home, away from the city. Inviting all of their children to attend, the couple is very happy with their standings in life and being retired is the greatest thing that could have ever happened for them. Saving their money and spending it wisely has worked out well for the happy couple and they are more than happy with just being together all the time.
Chrispian Davidson and girlfriend Erin are making their trip up to the house to help celebrate with the rest of the siblings, but Erin seems to be very hung up with the fact the her boyfriend’s parents are very well off. She had never known anybody with money before and hopes that they will accept her into the little circle. Chrispian is not too worried about it, trying to put Erin at bay by saying that they are just normal people, but Erin is trying her hardest not to give off a bad impression. The other brothers and lone sister make it to the house as well and they pick right up where they left off last time they all saw each other…fighting.
With the family all together and some possible new additions at the table, something seems to be a little off in the evening. There seems to be someone lurking in the bushes outside of the dining room and when the daughter’s boyfriend goes to investigate, he is met with an arrow in the head. Dinner is over and the group is looking for safety and trying to figure out who and what they are up against. Without having any real weapons of their own, Erin takes charge and starts arming the family members with anything she can find, including knives and a meat tenderizer. Not knowing who they are up against and the exterior of the house having booby traps set up, the family is trapped inside and has to wait to find out who is hunting them, head on.
You’re Next is a terror movie that focuses around money and power. Following the Davidson family as they battle for their lives facing unknown attackers wearing animal masks. With everyone on edge, Erin takes control and allows her past to come into play as she grew up on a survivalist’s camp in Australia. Taking care of her boyfriend, along with his family proves to be a task for Erin, but she is capable of so much more. Finding out what is really happening is much worse than she expected as she does not know who to trust anymore and is faced with the ultimate decision.
A fantastic ‘Who Done It’ film with a terror twist. Not knowing who you can trust in a new environment can be scary enough, but having to battle an external threat as well will keep you on your toes. It is just great being able to see one person take control of the situation as everyone else is running around with their head cut off. With great build ups and some outrageous kills that you will need to see more than once, it is an enjoyable ride. When money is mentioned later on in the film, most everything seems to come together, with the exception of who is really pulling all of the strings. Stay Scared.

Few things are as unfunny as the end of the world. When it comes it will likely be a downright depressing and horrible event and with good reason, it's the end of the freaking world. Be it a zombiepocalypse or an asteroid crashing into our world, or both...there is no joy to be had on that fateful day.
Yet leave it to the comedic genius of a few writers in Hollywood and it turns out, you can make the end of the world pretty freaking hilarious, as we all learned with last year's awesome horror/comedy, This is the End.
The plot is well, extremely meta as since every actor in the motion picture plays...themselves and one night at a party at James Franco's house in the Hollywood hills, the unthinkable happens. The Biblical end of the world arrives first with the Rapture, followed by fire and brimstone. Now these actors left behind must figure out how to survive the apocalypse and maybe, just maybe make it into heaven before the monsters that roam the land claim them first.
This is another movie that I made the mistake of skipping in theaters but at first, I have to admit, I was skeptical of this one being funny through and through. I mean I loved the line up of actors, and the premise sounded intriguing enough but my worry was that we had seen the best parts of this film in the trailer.
Well, never have I been so wrong. This movie is flat out hilarious. I love the fact that pretty much every actor in this film plays a parody of themselves and I love the fact that I spent an hour and a half laughing until my sides hurt. There are so many hilarious moments in this movie that it would take a week's worth of articles to cover every last one of them.
But perhaps the best moments in mind are when the gang decide to go ahead and film Pineapple Express 2, the surprise cameo at the ending that I won't get into and quite frankly, every single scene that features Danny McBride. He's already one of my favorite comedic actors and his scenes this time around completely stole the show.
Either way, if you were skeptical like I was about this film, don't be. Watch it, enjoy the laughs and watch it again. I don't have this one in my collection, but I get the funny feeling it will be on my shelf before too long, it's that good of a comedy and one that I've already watched quite a few times on demand. Trust me, it's worth it and who knew that the end of everything, could be this hilarious.

Very few times can you ever find what you are looking for, if you are looking for it. Lose your keys, your wallet or matching socks, they are never there when you need them when you make a conscious effort to find them. They always turn up in the most unexpected places and appear out of nowhere when you have given up your search.
Dr. Montague is looking for something to expand his career, a legitimate haunted house. He has stayed in several homes that have had this claim attached to them, but none of them have ever produced anything concrete. Hearing the stories and reading the articles about Hill House, Dr. Montague is more than intrigued. Sending out many letters to find a group of people that would be as interested in possibilities of the paranormal, along with some kind of background dealing with the same thing, the Doctor received three letters back saying they would accompany him.
Arriving at Hill House, Eleanor Vance was excited but frightened at the same time. She had just stolen her sister’s car to go on this expedition and was going to have no regrets until she had seen how the house was looking at her. It was cold, dark and did not seem to appreciate her looking in its general direction, or it could have been the rude greeting she had received from Mr. Dudley manning the front gate. However she was feeling, she was still ready to enter the home and see what the legends could produce in her presence. Being joined by a second visitor, Theodora as she was getting settled, Eleanor finds that she may have a friend that she can depend on while in the spooky house.
The two ladies take a walk outside of the creepy old house and find that there is a brook nearby that they should go and visit during their stay. A picnic needs to be had, for it is beautiful outside of the old house and no daylight should be wasted while they are investigating. Looking back at the house, the two agree that it looks very eerie. Making their way back to the spooky location, they find that two more guests have made their way in. Luke Sanderson and Dr. Montague have arrived and are ready to get settled in as well. Mrs. Dudley, the caretaker in the old house is very strict in her ways and lets the group know her schedule and will not deviate from it one bit. Everyone agrees, Mrs. Dudley maybe a little out of whack, but find humor in her dedications to the schedule.
The group gets together to discuss their past and what they are going to be doing in Hill House. Dr. Montague wants everyone to write down what they find in this haunted house, but not to be worried, as ghosts cannot hurt the living. Everyone gives a laugh and retires for the evening. The first night goes well for everyone, nothing out of the ordinary happened and some felt that it was the best rest they had in ages. The second night is where things get a little different as Eleanor and Theodora hear a knocking sound coming down the hallway that stops at their room…and waits for them to acknowledge they are still in the room. The women get very upset, but when the good doctor returns to the room, they both seem to be strangely calm and go about their business, until they are not able to find the two men in the morning for breakfast.
The Haunting of Hill House is a spooky tale that follows a group of four individuals that have never met before, but have to depend on each other to keep their sanity. Dr. Montague is the leader of the group, trying to provide rational explanations about what is happening. Everyone feels safe within the house, including Eleanor who the house has its eyes set on as messages are scrolled upon the walls calling to her. Eleanor keeps her cool for the most part, but when it gets to be too much for her, she gives in and starts to succumb to the haunting. Trying to protect everyone, along with his inheritance, Luke seems to be the sanest, but he can only keep it together for so long before the strange happenings start to get to him as well. Hill House is looking for someone, or something to sooth its eighty year old rage and there may be just the right victim now inside of its walls.
In need of a classic haunted house book on your book shelves? The Haunting of Hill House is a great one to add to your collection. Shirley Jackson has written a great piece that continues to have people raving, years after it has hit the shelves. With the disturbing thought that someone in the afterlife could be stalking a living, breathing person and driving them a little crazy is one thing, but making sure that same person gets driven into madness without feeling bad about it is just scary. It may be a short novel, but it does not keep you wondering what anyone in the house, or the house wants in the long run as everyone gets their own brand of scares throughout the story. It is a fantastic read and something that should be added to any horror fan's collection. Stay Scared and Happy Reading.

Horror and comedy usually go together like ice cream and steamed rice. Sure, you can mix them in a bowl, but what you end up with is a soupy mess. It's either jokes after jokes with an attempt to add in a monster or a scare or it's terrifying and the jokes simply seem out of place.
That hasn't stopped filmmakers from trying this wild and volatile mixture, and it's safe to say the results are often mixed or disastrous. I won't start naming names here, but I'm sure at least one movie of this type came to the top of your mind. But when the mold is broken and the mixture is right, oh man, it's comedy and gory gold. Case in point, Zombieland.
A young man known only as Columbus is wandering the wasteland that was once our world. The Mad Cow disease mutated and jumped to human beings, turning a vast majority of the population into bloodthirsty and violent zombies that now rule the land. Columbus is searching for a safe haven and runs into a man known only as Tallahasse who invites Columbus along for a ride that will change their lives and the lives of two girls known only as Wichita and Little Rock forever as they traverse the wasteland known as Zombieland.
If that plot seems a little too simple, well, it really is that easy and that's one of the many reasons Zombieland is such an outstanding film. Rather than going grandiose with the horror aspect, it found the way to make the film funny...by focusing on quirky characters put into one hell of an extreme situation.
Jessie Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and Emma Stone all let their comedic genius shine here. From Tallahassee's love of Twinkies to Columbus' fear of clowns, it is the depth and dimension to these characters that instantly pull you into this film, and don't get me wrong, the zombie gore is awesome too. In fact, there are a few solid jump moments as we travel the remnants of our world, but the jokes are just fantastic, and there are plenty to leave you in tears.
But perhaps the moment that steals the show...is the Bill Murray cameo. The man is comedic gold and holy hell is he beyond hilarious in this film. But aside from that, Zombieland is exactly what it should be, fun with a hint of scary that is a completely and utterly enjoyable film. This is definitely one to own and if you haven't seen it...get to it.

The other day I got the chance to watch Zombieland on TV and this got me thinking; what have I learned from all these Zombie movies/shows? Growing up, I wasn't huge into Zombie culture. Frankly, they terrified me. While they still scare me today, I feel I'm more aptly prepared to face down a horde of hungry Zombies now that I've had plenty of media exposure.
First and foremost, Zombie Media has taught me that there are many types of Zombies that may exist. Some are fast, some are slow, but either way, they're blood thirsty for human flesh. If you're a human, you should run. Which is the first rule in Zombieland anyway. Cardio is key to surviving in a world over run by these monsters. (As soon as I can, I am hitting the gym and getting back on that treadmill!).
Next, ammunition is not unlimited and you should always shoot for the head! (I guess this counts as two things.) Aim is key to also surviving a zombie apocalypse, so make your shots counts. Thankfully, I have a military dad. Hoard and conserve all the ammunition you can, because the more you have, the more you have to shoot with. Then again, guns may not always be ideal. They are pretty loud and if The Walking Dead has taught me anything it's that Zombies are attracted by noise. Oddly, this is also okay because I do own a bow with some arrows and know how to shoot that too!
Make friends with the redneck/tough guy. Chances are he's got a heart of gold and might not slit your throat while you're sleeping. This also has prompted me to want to watch shows like Survivor Man. Knowing how to survive in a world without air conditioning and heat…and internet, sounds terrible. But hey, it may come in handy when you know which plants to eat and which to not touch. Also. bugs are gross and no amount of hunger will ever make me consider eating them.
And, lastly, Zombie media has taught me that making fun of those who have been preparing for these types of world ending things, is not cool. Given all the brain viruses out there already, a Zombie invasion may not be too far fetched of an actual end to humanity. Okay, that part I'm pretty sure I just made up. You never know though! Zombies could happen and preparedness is nothing to laugh at!

As some people have said, love can drive you to do things that you never knew were possible. Reading reports of mothers lifting cars off of their children along with the selfless acts of people saving the lives of their significant others just astounds me. With this kind of unbridled abilities, just imagine what could be done if this power could be harnessed at all times. The power of love can make some things that were never thought possible, possible.
Ian Stone was setting up for the final play during his hockey game when something went terribly wrong for him. Shooting the game winning goal with two seconds left on the clock, the referees called it off saying that time had expired. Knowing that something was not right, Ian had to listen to the griping of his team mates as he did not pass or win the game. Disappointed in himself, he falls back on his girlfriend for reassurance that he did nothing wrong. When driving Jenny home from the game, Ian has a feeling that something is not right about the day. After saying goodnight, he heads home to find a person lying in the middle of the street, but when he tries to help them, Ian is met with a strange creature that shoves a large claw straight through him.
Waking up in an office, Ian believes that this was just a dream. Looking around the office however, he notices that several of the people look familiar from what he had just experienced and he starts to wonder what is happening. Upon leaving his office job, Ian sees a man dying on the side of the street with a helper that seems to be relishing in the fact that this is happening. Ian moves quickly away and finds comfort in an alley, but is met by a man who tells Ian that he needs to remember. Ian thinks that the man is just crazy, but believes what the man is saying before he is taken through a storm drain. Trying to call for help, Ian’s cell phone does not work and when reaching a pay phone, he is only met with static on the other end. Returning home and talking with his girlfriend Medea, Ian finds himself in more trouble than he could possibly imagine.
When ‘They’ know that you are onto them, ‘They’ will come…and kill you. The strange man was correct as Ian meets his next death at Medea’s hands. Ian awakens again in a new life with only partial recollection of what had previously happened. When his memory comes back however, he is hunted again by these strange creatures that are foreign to him and he looks for any way to escape them. These shadowy, black creatures with a single claw are to be known as ‘Harvesters’ as Ian finds out from another encounter from the stranger. These Harvesters feed on the fear of man, and once they get their first taste, they will never have enough.
The Deaths of Ian Stone follows Ian as he tries to figure out what the Harvesters want with him. Being killed several times, but always waking up in a different scenario, Ian is bound and determined to get at least one other person to believe him and what he has been going through. The stranger told him that he needed to protect Jenny, his girlfriend at all costs. She is the reason why Ian is being chased, and if the Harvesters get their hands on her, they will do everything possible to hurt her and that could end Ian’s story. Ian believes this and does everything within his power to keep these hunters away from Jenny, but when he finds out what she really is, he will become more powerful than the Harvesters could imagine.
With what is happening on the screen, this is a movie you will need to watch from start to finish and actually pay attention. The Deaths of Ian Stone is by far my favorite movie that came out of the After Dark Horrorfest Collection of 2007. I used to be a passive movie watcher, but this one kept me intrigued to the little things that were happening behind the actors as you never know who is and who is not a Harvester. With a different story line that what most American audiences are used to, your lead actor dies and dies often until he is able to figure out what and why he is being targeted. Ian along with Jenny are great characters, especially when they both end up having the same memories from their alternate lives. And when Ian figures out his only reason for living, it is an epic change from where the movie starts out. Stay Scared!

Three weeks ago while working on a church’s renovation in Romania, two brothers discover ancient ruins in a hidden altar. The two believe that it could bring them fame and fortune, but the tomb had something much more in store for the two men. Cutting his hand on a skull, the brother has now been infected by an ancient evil that humans and vampires will fear the same. An undefeatable force could be unleashed on the world if a group of Hunters cannot stop the ancient evil from achieving full transformation.
Carrie is the most tenured Hunter on her team and is not afraid to tell the others in the crew what is needed. At this point in time, they need a new revenue stream to fund their operations, but the most recent vampire kills have left them with no money and a new artifact. The vampires they recently put down were wearing a black stake with a red V around their necks, nothing of monetary value, but a sign that the group has never seen before. Regardless of the new threat, the group still needs money and finds that a recent missing person case may be their ticket, with a rich brother that will pay to locate his kin.
Along the way, Carrie and her team are investigating a vampire den where everyone has been killed by some uncontrollable force. Fighting with the only survivor of the attack, the crew is able to subdue and interrogate the old vampire. Stanis, the old vampire, is chained to a table while Carrie and friends start to torture the old soul. Trying to convince the Hunters that he is not their enemy, Stanis gives them enough little tidbits of information to keep them from destroying himself, but time is running out as the second coming of a more dangerous creature is coming upon the world.
Later, Carrie and her client, Clayton are kidnapped by a band of vampires that are looking for the whereabouts of Clayton’s brother. Knowing more than the Hunters, the group of vampires are looking for the brother who has been bitten by the ancient evil of Vlad Kossei. Vlad Kossei has to do only one thing to become immortal once again, have all of his surviving bloodline killed. He cannot accomplish this himself, he needs someone else to carry out the deed. Carrie tries to escape and kill as many of the bloodsuckers as she can, but is being held by her ex-boyfriend who is trying to convince her who the real threat is before he is killed.
Brotherhood of Blood follows a group of vampire hunters that is trying to continue their quest to rid the world of the bloodsuckers. When most of the group is killed on their latest hunt, Carrie and two others have to trust the ramblings of their new prisoner, Stanis. Stanis explains what is in store for the hunters and his own race if nothing is done about the second coming of Vlad Kossei. Trying to prepare for their own survival, the vampires have taken to their hiding place, but somehow, the Vlad Kossei winds up at their front door. Can the humans and vampires come together to defeat the ancient evil or will they continue their life long battle and allow Vlad Kossei to live once again?
Not a classical vampire story as the Hunters have to rely on their lifelong enemies for survival. Having to put trust in ones enemy to survive and defeat the ultimate evil is something that has been left out of vampire stories for many years. Although Carrie is a very strong woman on her own, her history comes back to haunt her as she has to battle for her own survival, along with the new menace that even frightens the vampires. A fun vampire move that will have you pulling for the humans as they try to escape, but once the vampires are under attack by the ancient evil, you may turn your pity to them as well. Stay Scared.

Keeping a mistake secret certainly has its consequences, especially when it comes to mistakes in our jobs. We want our bosses to think highly of us but know that an incredible screw up could cost us more than we could ever imagine. While most people do their best to make sure that they pay great attention to detail in what they do, sometimes mistakes happen and we either have the choice of owning up to it and being good about open communication, or keeping it quiet and let everything get out of hand.
The Viking Lander arrives on earth from its mission on Mars, but no one expected it to return. A team of NASA scientists are called in to investigate the strange arrival and are left more baffled than before. The original Viking build consisted of six overall landers and only five have been accounted for since its inception. This was the craft that went missing and the team of scientists need to figure out if it was actually sent into space and by whom?
Doctor Case Montgomery and Doctor Gracia Scott are leading the investigation on the mysterious craft and trying to figure out if there is anything out of place on it. Being helped by Michael Perkett, a NASA tech, they find that there has been a modification made to the craft that was not part of the original build. A pod had been added to lander. It seemed sturdy enough that the team did not pay any additional attention to it as the craft started to snap pictures of its surroundings. Since the craft still appeared to be functional and the computer operational, the team decided to try to download flight files, but when plugged in, the craft tried to reverse the download and compromised NASA’s files.
Although the group did not see any real problems with this, the military was called in to take control of the project. When trying to keep the new threat out of the mainframe, the group saw that the new pod was starting to expand and contract as if giving birth. Before they could call for help, a creature emerges from the craft, ready to wreak havoc on the facility. Not knowing what was happening inside of the laboratory, the military cuts down the door to gain access to the lander, but finds that they have released the creature into the main building. Not knowing what they were looking for, both groups band together to find out what, if any threat they were up against.
Lifeform follows two scientists that are looking for the truth of what their newly arrived Viking Lander had brought them. When not willing to share what they had found with their higher ups, the military is called in to take control of the investigation. Not expecting anything out of the ordinary, the military group is faced with tracking down the E.T. that is running around the NASA facility. Facing an unknown foe, they find that this alien is going to be more than a problem as select items are rummaged from their fallen. With an Extra Terrestrial on the loose, both the scientist and military groups have to work together to locate the alien, along with find out what it is really on Earth to do.
A science fiction thriller that will keep you on your toes for sure with no ‘buts’ about it. Having a missing craft return to the planet after it had not been accounted for years before is just scary. If millions of dollars are put down to build a series of spacecraft and they are all in space is one thing, but having one go missing and then return from somewhere else can just make your skin crawl. Although this was a movie from the 80’s, it still speaks to what is going on today with all of the political controversy that is happening these days with the distrust between everyone, the lack of communication and well...simply owning up to the fact that somebody screwed up, which is surprising to find in a flick such as this. Some things never change and that might be the message that this film delivered, so many years ago. Stay Scared!

Taking a break before having a life changing event is great advice for everyone. Getting away from your troubles for a day, a week, a year could be an incredibly refreshing event. Keeping your mind off of everything that is important to you in the real world is really one of the best reasons to take a vacation and just get away. Most of the time, when you return, your batteries are recharged and you are ready to take on life once again.
Three friends are looking to get away before running back to college for their next semester. Thinking that anything goes down in Mexico, that is their next destination. Wanting to drink, smoke and not have any other care in the world, the three start their road trip and find exactly what they are looking for. Letting themselves go, they find that a local strip club has more to offer than expected, since two of the three find love.
Henry is disappointed in his friends for falling in love so quickly, but makes sure that it will not calm his vacation buzz. Taking his friends and two ladies out, the group settles in and takes some hallucinogens to enhance the nightly experience. Walking back to his new lady friend’s apartment, Phil is approached by a man just looking for a light for his cigarette. Seeing that Phil is still under the influence of something, he is kidnapped and taken to a powerful cartel members home.
Phil is missing and his friends are trying to find him, but are not able to speak Spanish fluently enough to get any answers. Working with Ed’s new squeeze, Valeria, to get answers, they find out that their friend has been taken by Santillan, a very powerful drug runner who will stop at nothing to accomplish his goals. Believing in the dark arts, Santillan believes that sacrifices have to be made to the gods to help protect his shipments up to the states. Finding that the latest sacrifices have not produced the desired effect, an American may be the only way to appease the gods for his benefit.
Borderland follows three friends as they try to unwind and get away from reality for a while by visiting Mexico. Being a perfect target for a Mexican cartel leader, one man is taken and has his friends try their best to find him, they find that the lack of laws they were looking for is no longer in their favor. When the name Santillan is mentioned to any of the local villagers, they all become quiet and hesitant to talk, but if they do open their mouths, they are met with vengeance from the cartel. Being told to go home and see if the American government would help them, the two friends join forces with a retired police officer that has a score to settle with Santillan.
Just a downright thriller that will keep you hoping that the poor Americans are able to escape the confines of Mexico and return home. With one of the strongest cartel leaders in the country against them, they are unable to know who to trust while their friend is scheduled to meet his untimely fate. Not being able to trust or even get help from the local authorities may be one of the scariest parts of this movie, along with Santillan, a well-spoken and extremely calm leader that believes that magic can protect his livelihood. This movie will make you think twice about where you chose to visit for a quick getaway. Stay Scared.
