OK, another pointless slasher film with a pointless cast of victims and a pointless monster. I shall go into more detail,
Jeremiah Stone was arrested and hung for the crime of murder and claim jumping in 1849. But he vowed that he would never
let anyone have what he had stolen and the handicap of being dead isn't hampering that vow.
A group of college students come to the town looking for the legendary lost treasure and finds it and a whole lot of trouble
in the undead Jeremiah Stone.
Now this has a good cast, not much to work with. The story is weak, after all it's not like Jeremiah Stone can spend
his gold being dead and you can't take it with you. I blame the director, but Jeremiah is dead, he can't feel anymore, so
when they cut his hand off, he shouldn't have felt pain or when he places the pick axe in his wrist. Which doesn't make any
sense either, what happened to his bones?
The effects are good but guess what, like allot of these crap horror slasher movies as of late they give us the other
shoe ending. They use explosives to blow up Jeremiah Stone. They think they've won, the sheriff arrives to help as Jeremiah
pops out of the ground with no face. We both give this crap fest, THE TURKEY!
