An international group of young surfers comes into possession of an ancient artifact, Mamba, an old board game made from the skin and bones of a witch executed during the Spanish Inquisition. At a drunken party one night, they casually decide to play. It’s all fun and games until they find out that curses last forever and death is the ultimate undertow.
I thought Open Graves, also known as Mamba, would be boring from the description of it, but I was wrong. When the movies off, before opening credits, you get to view the pain the witch went through. Her nails break off and they show close-ups of it, then she gets slit with a knife. This as much of the movie as I will explain. I will leave the rest for a surprise.
I loved this movie and thought it was great. It was kind of like that one movie called Jumanji, except with a horror story and deaths mixed in. The only thing I did not like about this movie was the ending. I’m sure many people, who have seen this, would agree but I want to save it for you to decide.
