Dagon 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

This is one of two Lovecraft stories that's been well albeit loosely interpreted for the screen (the other is John Carpenter's ''In the Mouth of Madness''). It's _not_ Lovecraft's ''Dagon'', but instead quite another (and better) story (Google on ''gizmology lovecraft innsmouth'' to read the original online). The translation from a New England fishing village gone horribly wrong generations ago to a Spanish one in no way harms the story, the injection of subtle humor adds to it, and the ending may be better than Lovecraft's. The only problem I had with it had to do with the wonderful speeches of Ezequiel (played by actor Francisco Rabal, equivalent in the original ''... Innsmouth'' to Zadok Allen). Talk about an accent you could cut with a knife; this one would blunt the knife, and I regret being unable to interpret some of what was said. But this is a minor quibble, I can still recommend this as excellent cinema.

Absolutely riveting...a definite must for any Lovecraft fan; done true to the source material with enough blood and gore to spice it up. The dialogue vacillating between Spanish and English not only added to the authenticity of the film, but in no way detracted from the frenetic action. Pick it up!

After toying with Lovecraft in ReAnimator and From Beyond, Stuart Gordon hits a home run with this terrific horror film. This time, the film is quite faithful to the source material, though borrowing much from Shadow Over Innsmouth and other Lovecraft stories. From the first ten minutes I was riveted to everything in the story. A storm strands a small sailing vessel onto a rock, pinning a women to stone as her blood mixes with the flooding waters. A man and his wife paddle to a nearby town for help, only to be caught up in their worst nightmare. It just goes from bad to worse with haunting visuals and an ever-increasing sense of tension. This is what a real horror movie should be, it doesn't rely on a body count or extreme gore (though the movie does deliver in this respect too). It's about characters who are in a situation far beyond their comprehension. To say that the small fishing village on the shore harbors a secret is to say nothing of what is left to uncover. The effects might not be perfect by today's standards, but as it is a low-budget film, it's easy to overlook and forgive, besides, Gordon so capably sells the material on the screen that you don't care that it doesn't look effectively believable all the time. There's so many shocking surprises at every turn and they keep getting more incredible as the characters delve further into the mystery. If you like Lovecraft you have to see this film. If you're looking for a horror movie with more on its mind than a series of victims, you have to see this film. Great stuff.

Dagon is one of those movies that will pleasantly surprise you. It is about a workaholic that embarks on a pleasure outing with his ladyfriend and another couple, and end up fighting for his very soul. The movie has many twist and turns, but its the ending that will shock you! This is a movie for true sci-fi buffs. The scenery is dreary and bland, just right for a picture of this caliber. Dagon will haunt your dreams, especially if you have a fear of the sea.
