Plot
Full Moon Entertainment produces this H.P. Lovecraft inspired feature film, starring Ashley Laurence and Jeffrey Combs. Laurence looks permanently angry and Combs plays a doctor, as usual. He’s got a beard and smokes cigarettes, so not to mistake him with Herbert West. They cross paths with three generic gangsters who probably won’t make it until the end credits.
The creature that lurks below the cemetery is something else; good monster make-up, good physical acting. It’s infinitely more fascinating than those poorly assorted criminals. I was afraid it would be turned into an anti-hero, and it didn’t. I had fun watching characters break stuff that looks expensive, like vitrais and church pews. A shitload of stuff gets blown off.
C. Courtney Joyner wrote and directed this. It is one of Full Moon’s better movies, but it has a critical weakness: it’s characters. This is a busy script, opposing three groups of characters who should’ve never met. At no point did I feel any kind of fusion between these guys. I didn’t feel empathy, friendship; I didn’t feel hate. The actors never went there, and the script sure didn’t help.
