An arty zombie movie, this atmospheric American Civil War tale is described by director George (Hearts of Darkness) Hickenlooper as 'Conrad with a twist of Bram Stoker'. Confederate soldiers thought killed in an earlier skirmish are now suspected of a gruesome massacre. Forced into an alliance with Union captain Pasdar, captive Confederate colonel Bernsen finds Union soldiers crucified upside down on X-shaped crosses. Is an army of the undead abroad in this war-torn land? Involving, with dark undertones.
