Dig Two Graves

In this supernatural mystery (2014), seasoned character actor Ted Levine (Shutter Island, The Silence of the Lambs) proves he can carry a picture; as a guilt-ridden lawman, he easily outclasses the supporting cast, whose performances range from serviceable to histrionic. After the sheriff's teenage granddaughter loses her brother in a swimming accident, she's approached by three sinister backwoods drifters who promise to restore the brother to life if she will lure another youngster to his death. Swedish cinematographer Eric Maddison renders the southern Illinois locations stark and ominous, and screenwriters Hunter Adams and Jeremy Phillips toss in black magic, vengeful gypsies, and a snake cult. But this still lacks the punch of even a humble campfire tale. Adams directed; with Samantha Isler.
