From the creators of 'Re-Animator'...

Marooned in a malevolent storm off a bleak & desolate Isle, Paul and Barbara seek shelter in a grim and soulless village. When Barbara vanishes amid the deformed and repulsive villagers they encounter, Paul sets out on a frantic pursuit to uncover her whereabouts and the secret that lies dormant beneath the cavernous ruins of the devastated township.

This is another horror based on a classic HP Lovecraft story directed by Re-animators Stuart Gordon, a very strange story about a group of people on a boat who end up on a strange island after an accident, this is no ordinary island as all of the people there are worshipers of Dagon a weird sea creature, this is a very strange horror and quite unique at the same time, there are some pretty gross gore moments and some CGI effects that are a tad on the low budget size but if youre a horror fan this is certainly one to check out.

Dagon was brought to us by a Director very familiar with the works of Lovecraft and here he has crafted(pardon the pun!)another and perhaps his best horror treat.Great special effects and an eerie atmosphere add to a wonderful telling of a classic horror tale.

 Better than most Lovecraft adaptations...

if you can handle the campy style and some of the actors...limitations. Stuart Gordon is always good, and the story has been nicely prolonged

 A nice little tribute to H.P. Lovecraft's celebrated story.

The film is an adaption from a classic Lovecraft story called 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth' and it was based on the remote Massachusetts coast of the USA. In Dagon however, the setting is switched to a remote coastal village on the coast of Spain called Imboca. The opening to the film differs from the original story but with good reason. I don't think it would have worked very well as a film if the original reason for the travellers arriving in the creepy town was followed. The title 'Dagon' comes from the name of the sea god that is worshipped by the townspeople.

Anyway, an over-night millionaire (Paul) is seemingly enjoying his new found wealth with his beautiful spanish girlfriend (Barbara) on a yacht off of the coast of Spain when a storm hits. The boat is knocked into a rocky reef (Devil's Reef) as a result and one of the passengers is badly injured. This forces Paul and Barbara to paddle ashore in an inconveniently useless speedboat to seek help. What they find is a eerie, quiet and very unwelcoming town where the people appear to be hideously disfigured. Barbara disappears and Paul discovers the town's secret, which turns out to be one hell of a lot more than he had bargained for!

The makers of this film are devoted Lovecraft fans and in that, they have paid a nice tribute to this excellent story. The use of some cheap CGI is a bit of a shame but it does not affect the overall performance of the film. It is quite graphically violent in places as well (perhaps a bit too much) but it does give you a good idea of just how savagely devoted these 'people' are to their god.

If you are (like myself) a fan of HP Lovecraft's stories or a fan of horror films in general, then you should definitely give this one a go but I doubt it will appeal to a very big audience.
