The movie was originally titled 'Grey Knight' and was screened at some festivals in 1993. Allegedly, after some previews (most notably one for USA network executives), the producer (Brad Krevoy) was led to believe the movie was "too artsy" and ordered it re-cut. The producer's cut was released as 'The Killing Box' in Europe and as 'Ghost Brigade' in America (though the laserdisc 'Ghost Brigade' is 'Grey Night' with only its title changed). The director's cut was released on DVD in 2005 under its original title 'Grey Knight'. See more »
George Hickenlooper failed most miserably here on all accounts - casting, music, scenery, action, probability, depth and morale. Nothing worked in this mesh-mash of Civil War, thriller, horror flick, erotica, mystical realm exploitation, quasi-psychology, drama and romance. Not a single actor shines here, even such heavyweights as Martin Sheen, Billy Bob Thornton or David Arquette do a very mediocre job here, at least slightly convincing, but generally very disturbing and even embarrassing. The very idea of this ghost brigade immediately slides into sleazy banality and deep clichés start appearing one after another. All those silver bullets, dark scenes, strange dreams, very vapid dialogs and laughable battle scenes make this film a real flop and a bomb. It does not hold, it never works.
