STULL, Kan. - It's a final resting place for many former residents of Stull, Kan. - a place with modern and historic head stones and ruins of an old church.

"I just look at it as a cemetery," says Lynn Moses.

"Just a regular cemetery," agrees Sara Asher.

Many who perhaps don't live near the spot or who surf the web may think something else.

"I Googled it, and I did a little research on the internet and found out that it was the 'gateway to hell,'" Asher says.

Sara Asher moved to Stull with her husband and children a few months ago.  She can see the cemetery from her house.

"I was eagerly awaiting Halloween to see what would happen because it's supposed to open up on Halloween, but it didn't.  Nothing happened," Asher says.

She continues by saying she really hasn't ever seen anything happen at the cemetery.  Despite the lack of activity, it's still known by many as a 'gateway to hell,' a resting place for the devil's offspring, and a place where the devil shows himself.

Former Guns N Roses' guitarist Slash, is no exception.  He reportedly believes in it enough to make a horror movie about it.

Slash has a film production company called "Slasher Films."  His movie was sold to "Anchor Bay Films," according to a press release FOX 4 found regarding the Sundance Film Festival.

The movie makes Lynn Moses, who lives across the street, upset.

"I'm afraid we're going to have a lot more people coming out and looking," Moses says.

Moses says in the six and half years he's been here, the biggest terrors he's seen are onlookers who often leave beer cans and occasionally topple tomb stones.  He says that likely upsets people who live around town and have family members who are buried in that cemetery.

He hopes Slash's movie doesn't go far, but Asher anticipates the film with curiosity.

"I can't wait to see it.  I might make an exception and watch that horror movie since it's made just up on the hill from us," she says.

Fox 4 tried to reach out to Anchor Bay Films, which picked up Slash's movie, but we didn't hear back from them.  According to a press release from the company, the movie is about a family misguided by a disturbed man of the cloth.  The press release does not include a premier date.
