The Graves is a 2009 horror film. Described as a "supernatural survival shocker," it is written and directed by veteran comic book creator Brian Pulido and produced by Mischief Maker Studios, and Ronalds Brothers Productions.[1]


The story centers on two sisters (Clare Grant and Jillian Murray) who visit the Skull City Mine roadside attraction in the desert. Their plight turns into a fight for survival against menaces both human and supernatural.[2]

On their last weekend together, Megan and Abby Graves become lost in a remote part of the Arizona desert where they are lured to Skull City, an abandoned mine town; however, Skull City is anything but abandoned—and there’s no way out.



The Graves is the debut film of independent comic book creator, Brian Pulido (Lady Death, Evil Ernie).[3]

It features performances by genre vets Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Tony Todd (Candyman),[4] female leads, played by Clare Grant (Masters of Horror: "Valerie on the Stairs") and Jillian Murray (The Fun Park)[5] and the debut of D. Randall Blythe (front man, Lamb of God).[6]


The principal photography was shot on location in the Sonoran Desert near Wickenburg, Arizona over the course of 4 weeks and the project has entered post-production. The real-life Vulture City Mine and ghost town was used as the setting for the film.[7]


The film ran at 8 Films to Die For IV[8] and premiered there on January 29, 2010.[9]
