Movie Reviews

Not horrible, but bad
John T. O'Connor | Ohio | 03/12/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Most new Lovecraft inspired movies don't adhere to the accepted "canon" created by either Lovecraft and/or Derleth, so I did not expect this film to do so, and I was not disappointed. It is, however, far closer to the original "canon" than the Reanimator films or the Unnameable films. So, I guess this is a "true" modern Lovecraft film.

As for the movie itself, it obviously had a rather small budget. The acting is adequate, but certainly not great. The lead girl is attractive and competent, but hardly a great actress. The story does move along slowly, which is much like a Lovecraft story, and the characters discover each new piece of the puzzle much as Lovecraft's characters did in his better stories. Several times, the dialogue is very stilted, as though the writer is explaining things rather than doing true dialogue. The actors occasionally seem to fall out of character, too.

Still, for all the faults, this is not a terrible film. It has moments of real Lovecraft feeling. For the price, it isn't too terribly expensive, either. If you are a Lovecraft fan, you can certainly do worse than watching this little film."
It's okay

"this movie reminds me of my chess skills. it started out strong, but fell apart at the end. overall, it is a likeable indie film. it is low budget. i thought the writing and editing was good. the points i don't like and hence 2 stars: 1) the cover has nothing to do with the movie. there is no nudity, though the witch is mighty fine looking. in the rating section it does say sexually explicit scenes but there are none. 2) it's full screen, not wide screen. 3) there is no depth to any of the acting. 4) the ending was bad. 5) the visual effects weren't that good. but, saying all that, i still like it somewhat and give it credit for the effort."

"This movie was truley awful, I agree baisically with the other reviewers but it offended me because of its genuine lack of creativity and it wasn't even fun,like some of the bad mythos stories can be, it was competent,boring and made to suck cash from unsuspecting Lovecraft fans,much worse even than a "BAD" movie.(The audio WAS incompetent)."
I was worned

"When I bought this film, I was warned by an Amazon reviewer. I should have listened. I love the stories of H.P. Lovecraft and thought I would give this film a try with an open mind. Sorry I didn't listen. It was NOT a good film."
