Three twentysomethings learn the hard way about how to behave in a cemetery in this independent horror story. Harris (Dominic Purcell), Sid (Marcus Thomas), and Kira (Josie Maran) are three longtime friends who are reunited under unfortunate circumstances when their pal Devin dies in an auto accident. After attending Devin's funeral, the three stage an impromptu wake at a nearby roadhouse, and after lots of drinking they return to his grave to pay their final respects. Sid finds a note on Devin's grave which contains what appear to be lyrics to a song; the revelers begin singing the song and dancing around the cemetery, trampling the nearby graves. It isn't long before Devin's friends discover they've made a serious mistake; the poem they sang was actually a magic spell, and by reciting it as they disrespect the dead they've awakened angry spirits, who begin terrorizing them in their homes. Worst of all, paranormal investigator Vincent (Tchéky Karyo) informs Harris that there's only one sure way to stop the ghosts from bothering them -- death. The Gravedancers received its world premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
I really liked this movie up until the end. There were some creepy parts and all but the ending was so cheesy that it ruined it all for me. It seemed like they spent their whole budget on the majority of the film but in the end switched back to old school graphics for the finale. Worth renting but not the 16 bucks for the theatre.
I saw this movie at the After Dark horror film festival and unlike most of the other flicks I saw there, this one was pretty entertaining. It had some cool concepts, and the ghosts looked very unique. I dug it. It was far from perfect though. it's not really scary, and the acting is pretty atrocious, but the dialoge can be witty, and the plot-line is pretty original. worth a rental.
The ghosts were very cool looking. Especially the old man with his Pumpkinhead'ish appearance. There were a few parts that were very creepy, but...that was about it.
Dominic Purcell did a good job but some of the other acting was horrible, as was most of the dialog. I kept sitting and waiting for more but as the movie got to the end, I only received less.
This was my first watch of the 8 fest movies, so I'm hoping the other 7 may live up to the hype.
