Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Based on the short story by H.P. Lovecraft. Dagon tells the tale of Paul Marsh, who along with his girlfriend and friends, have an accident on the sea. In the distance a port town can be seen, but this isn't you're regular quiet town, It holds deep dark secrets of cult worship and the macabre.
Really enjoyed this movie, it's sort of a combination of a few different stories the most obvious being The Shadow over Innsmouth which I loved. Also if you ever played the game Call of Cthulhu it's very similar to the plot of this movie. Probably the best Lovecraft adaptation ever made. (not counting Re-animator which was a VERY loosely based adaptation) And a really effective horror movie. Very well paced and quite creepy at times. The cgi is a little dated but it's not used too much so it isn't a big deal. Everything else about it was great. There's some nudity and disturbing scenes in this so be warned. I think with a little polishing this could've been a great movie, but it falls just a little short. Still a good watch though.
