Continuing from last year, this project is an attempt to help me get dvds that for one reason or another I’ve never seen off of my shelf and give them a watch. Today I’ve got The Graveyard.
IMDb: The Graveyard (Video 27 June 2006)
The friends Jack, Allie, Sarah, Charlie, Michelle and Eric go to the Placid Pines Cemetery to play hide and seek in the tombs. Meanwhile their friend Bobby dresses like a masked killer to play a prank with Eric. However, the scared Eric runs trying to escape and stumbles, dying impaled over sharp bars. Bobby takes the blame alone for the deadly accident and spends five year in prison. When he goes to his parole hearing, Michelle testifies and he gets his probation. Michelle drives with Bobby to a camp nearby the graveyard where the tragedy happened to reunite their friends and resolve their issues.
The ending of The Graveyard will surprise you… Because they wrote it wrong, but hey, a surprise is a surprise. The character that turns out to be the killer is accounted for during one of the kills, but whatever. Who cares? This is otherwise a middle-of-the-road cheap thriller. It has one of the dumbest horror movie cops ever which is an accomplishment. There’s a strong field of contenders in that category too. The only thing that I got out of this personally is the slang term Doughnut Bumper. I’ll most likely never get to use it, but it’s good to learn new things.
We’re entering the last leg of the month. I’ll keep pumping these out, so keep checking in. In the meantime, listen to Motion Picture Meltdown’s episode on Death Bed: The Bed That Eats and Death Spa for no particular reason.
