I hate to say it, but I’ve never heard of Open Graves before today. No, not Open Grave, the Eduardo Sanchez movie we’re still waiting for an update on, but Open Graves, plural, which stars Mike Vogel (Cloverfield) and Eliza Dushku (Wrong Turn). The film marks the directorial debut of Álvaro de Armiñán, who served second AD duties on Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s Intacto.
Open Graves is about a group of surfers who come across an ancient board game called Mamba. Though they think it’s just a stupid way to pass the time, as soon as they’re done playing, members of the the group begin to die in the method and order they were eliminated from the game. And it’s pretty nasty!
The trailer for Open Graves found its way onto YouTube today, which is how I caught wind of it, and though it’s got some pretty cheesy moments, there’s also a lot of good gore and potential for moments of horrific violence, the best kind. Check it out below and keep it here for more news on Open Graves now that I know of its existence!
