Blu-ray Review - Grave Secrets


1989's "Grave Secrets" is a curious mix of paranormal investigation and human trauma, with screenwriters Jeffrey Polman and Lenore Wright trying to create a screen nightmare for genre viewers that also deals with rather severe real-world agony. It's a bizarre concoction at times, but director Donald P.
