A grave robber takes home more than a few pieces of stolen jewelry in The Bone Box. Written and directed by newcomer Luke Genton, The Bone Box is a psychological horror story about loss, and big bad ghosties. In the film, widower Tom (Gareth Koorzen) has racked up some pretty serious gambling debts. Eager to pay back his impatient collectors, Tom robs several graves looking for valuables. Unfortunately for Tom, burial jewelry and sentimental trinkets aren’t all that came home with him that night.
The Bone Box stars Gareth Koorzen (The Black That Follows), Michelle Krusiec (The Invitation) and Maria Olsen (Starry Eyes). Rounding out the cast is Jamie Bernadette (I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu), David Chokachi (Baywatch), Aaron Schwartz (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), and Tess Bellomo (Liked). The film is co-produced by director Luke Genton and Cynthia Bravo (Hide in the Light). Executive producer credits go to Luana Figueroa (Hardcore Pawn) with Gonzalo Digenio (Zero Days) handling cinematography duties.
Depressed and reeling from the recent death of his wife, Tom has built up quite a gambling debt. He goes to stay with his wealthy Aunt Florence in hopes that she will write him into her will. When a nasty creditor makes it clear that Tom is out of time, he devises a plan with Elodie, the undertaker’s daughter, to rob the graves of the rich townspeople buried in the cemetery across the road. After plundering the graves, Tom arrives back at Florence’s house and events take a dark turn. Tom begins hearing and seeing strange things that seem to coincide with the deaths of the people he robbed. Even more disconcerting… he appears to be the only one sensing the occurrences. One question lingers: Is Tom’s conscience playing a trick on him… or is he really being haunted by those he stole from?
