PLOT:

The story of a condemned Warlock named Walter Machen who creates a monster prior to his arrest to avenge himself on the town. Though defeated by the Kelly Patrarch. It rested with a cross embedded in it's chest for close to a century. But the truth turned to myth as Mister Jack became just another Boogie Man to scare children. But when Grave Robbers find the hidden graveyard and remove the cross from Jack, he rises and quickly makes short work of the would be thieves. A cleaver and unique plotline even if some of the dialog was a tad on the corny side
