Starring Nicole Leigh, Jonathan Brooks, Matthew Tompkins, Michael Crabtree and Charles Baker, The Mechanical Grave is a Victorian era thriller featuring an automaton Edgar Allan Poe, new appointed Police Commissioner Teddy Roosevelt, demons, murder, magic, and a bevy of steampunk, shoot ’em up action.
Description: The year is 1895. Steam-powered ships fly through the air. Clockwork robots have replaced servants. And a grisly murder has taken place in the dark night of New York City. Called to the scene of the ritualistic murder of a young woman, newly appointed police commissioner Teddy Roosevelt discovers Detective Wayne and his police officers power usurped by two special investigators appointed by the White House: Occultist Edgar Allan Poe, a clockwork automaton housing the soul of the literary legend, and Mrs. Emma Entwistle, a dangerous assassin with a unique connection to the otherworld. When they elicit information from the demon Neshrew, a much darker and more dangerous plot of world domination is uncovered.
The short film was produced by Wolfclan Productions and Highland Myst Entertainment. Director Jon Keeyes. Producer Matthew Tompkins. Writer Charles Burnley.
