Our Score
In this low-budget but effectively atmospheric American Civil War-set horror, Henry Thomas and Patrick Fugit star as part of a motley outlaw band consisting of Confederate deserters, an escaped slave and an army nurse, on the run after a bungled robbery. They take refuge in a seemingly abandoned mansion, but the old house has a rather unsavoury past and a supernatural presence soon begins to manifest itself - in increasingly macabre ways - over the course of a long night. The South's racist legacy is an obvious allusion here, but the film also works well simply as a brooding shocker.


In Civil War America, a group of Confederate soldiers rob a bank and flee toward the Mexican border, leaving a trail of death behind them. As the night closes in, the fugitives take shelter in a seemingly abandoned house - only to be confronted by supernatural forces intent on revenge. Horror, starring Henry Thomas, Nicki Aycox, Isaiah Washington and Michael Shannon.
