Some board games can cause much bigger problems than the customary Monopoly-fueled family punch up – as one group of friends soon discover in Open Graves, hitting DVD shelves in the UK on February 15th courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment.
The film drops in the US on February 23rd. The full synopsis for Open Graves (review here), starring Eliza Dushku and Mike Vogel, is as follows:
The macabre story unfolds when an international group of young carefree surfers come into possession of the ancient artifact mysteriously referred to as “Mamba” – an old board game made from the skin and bones of a witch executed during the Spanish Inquisition.
Young American expatriate Jason (Mike Vogel) spends his carefree days surfing the beaches of northwestern Spain. The surf community is international, exotic, and beautiful, particularly the enigmatic and sexy Erica (Eliza Dushku), whom Jason falls in love with.
One evening, during a drunken party, the surfers become curious and suddenly decide to open up the board game and play “Mamba” for kicks. It’s all fun and games until they discover that ancient curses have terrifying consequences.
As soon as they play the game, one by one, death begins to follow them in the most gruesome ways. To save their friends Erica and Jason are forced to put themselves at ultimate risk by trying to unwind the diabolical chain of events they relentlessly set in motion. It’s a race against the clock for the pair to reverse the diabolical spell.
Special features for this Final Destination meets Jumanji jamboree are yet to be confirmed.
