Dove Review

Jesse inherits a mansion owned by his mother and father who were murdered in the house. When Jesse starts doing some research he discovers that his great great grandfather was burried with a great abundance of jewels. In learning this he decides to dig up the grave and in doing so he finds that his great, great grandfather is still alive and kept that way by the forces of the crystal skull that was burried with him. This film contains a lot of violent and disturbing images and therefore not approved by Dove.
