About ‘The Cemetery’

Posted in ABOUT THE MOVIE on May 9, 2013 by adamahlbrandt

A team of paranormal investigators must fight for their lives after accidentally releasing a demon from a forgotten cemetery.

Deep in the Pennsylvania hills, a cemetery for those who died during exorcism remains a dark secret for the church. In 1671, hundreds of men, women, and children suffered in bloody, torturous rituals at the hands of priests unable to contain the evil of the possessed. Were these possessions real, or is the story a hoax to cover up the sins of the deranged priests thirsty for human blood? Bill and his team of cynical paranormal investigators plan to find out the truth. As the producer and host of the reality TV show “Ghost Seekers,” Bill and his crew have seen it all: abandoned prisons, haunted houses, and decrepit mental hospitals. Night after night of boring trips to empty run down buildings has left them sure that the dead stay dead and that ghosts are the furthest thing from being real. Their lack of faith will soon be repaid in blood. Armed with the church’s historical record, they set out into the wilderness to uncover this series of forgotten atrocities. The demons of the past are invited to return and the gory details of old sins are revealed as the possessed begin hunting the living. Alternately gut-punching hilarious and brutally violent, The Cemetery takes the best elements of the old-school slasher film and pushes them to the edge.

Featuring music from Willowtip Records: Fleshgod Apocalypse, Gorod, Ulcerate, Circle of Dead Children, Defeatist, The Year of Our Lord, Squash Bowels, & Crowpath

“This film is extreme adult horror in its sleaziest and goriest best; if you guys are not familiar with Adam and his films you really are truly missing out…This film delivers and does it a lot!
- James DePaolo, Wicked Channel

“Adam Ahlbrandt is definitely a filmmaker to look out for. He makes movies that horror fans want to see. Films packed with blood, guts, tits and ass; this is the stuff that reminds me why I started watching horror flicks in the first place”
- Jake Cadaverous, The Silver Scream

 [The Cemetery] injects some logic and realism into the mix… it’s little touches like this that allow Ahlbrandt’s movies to stand out”
-Mike Watt, Film Threat

“You have a good time, jumping, laughing, and popping it in for your friends later because it’s something definitely worth repeat viewings”
-Tom Gleba, Nerd Remix

“A hungry indie energy, augmented by some killer practical effects”
-Ben Foutch, Slackers Selection

“An exquisite slab of nasty, fun, uber-brutal indie horror.”
- Shawn Macomber, Decibel Magazine

“It was just the right mix of horror with some comedic elements sprinkled in.”
- Michael Juvinall, Horror Society

- Gruesome Hertzogg Radio

The great Eric Stanze reviews The Cemetery..

“Ahlbrandt’s skills as a cinematographer provide shots that are always interesting, and the flick is nicely paced, thanks to sharp editing by Ahlbrandt and producer Anton Sattler.  The cast, topped by J.D. Brown, Natalie Jean, Adam Huss, Tim Cronin, and Tabetha Ray, is exceptional.  They create attention-grabbing characters who weave together interestingly – and their performances definitely bolster the film’s vicious, unrelenting, go-for-the-throat tone.”
