In Civil War-era Alabama, a band of outlaws takes refuge at an abandoned plantation after robbing a bank that held a cache of Confederate gold. Led by William, the group includes Sam, Todd, Annabelle, Clyde and Joseph. They intend to flee to Mexico, but nightfall and a thunderstorm force the robbers to remain in place. As the night wears on, each member of the group begins to have visions of the atrocities that occurred within the house. As supernatural forces begin to manifest themselves, the six turn on one another.
Was this movie made for the Sci-Fi Channel? Because it really seemed like it was. This movie was the combo of a western and a horror movie. That makes sense, no it really does, not. What in the hell were they thinking? Has all of the walking dead/zombie fest kept spilling over, so that everyone thinks that they can create something profitable? Movie makers have become that desperate today to make a movie.
Bank robbers in a haunted house does not even sound like a good movie, especially if it takes place not long after the Civil War. People believed in ghosts and spirits hovering around more than they do now. They were more simple thinking, and they did believe what they saw. This movie was just not to par at all. The cast could not even save this movie. They were all just okay in the movie. It is like they knew the movie was bad.
This is a movie that needs to be forgotten. It is not worth watching at all. It is awful to sit though. I recommend this movie for a nap, since that is what happened the first time I tried watching it. I watched, so you don't have to.
