A decade passes and the threats of Warden rots away. The town youths find it's due time to celebrate "V-day". And so, from the mists of Time walks in the believed ghost/zombie of Harry Warden as Miner 49'er! Bent on his revenge with the help of his trusty pick-ax, killing all who thread on Hanniger Mine.
Blood & breasts ensue...
The film has some quite creative kills. Decapitation by shovel,hanging through ore pulley system, impaling on school flagpole, burned alive in a tumble dryer!
Originally a 1986 sequel was planned. Set five years later, the domain of Miner 49'er, the now abandoned Hanniger Mine would become an all-to-real haunted house for the town's Spring Fling Festival. This production was sadly canceled.
In 2009, the film was remade and shot in realD)) 3-D. The remake stars Tom Atkins and Jensen Ackles.
