DVD of the Day #333 - The Lurking Fear

Oh my, do I have a soft spot for Full Moon films. SubSpecies Blood Dolls and The Dead Hate The Living are my favourites, but I don’t think i could ever bring myself to own any of Charles Band’s other films, this one included. Yes, they’re purposely comedy-horror, but most of them are so bad, they’re for watching once and mocking for the rest of your life.

Originally this was meant to be a Stuart Gordon film, but there were issues between him and Band so he was replaced as director by one of the scriptwriters. The film actually boasrs a pretty good horror movie cast. Ashley Lawrence, Jeffery Combs, and Paul Mantee are just some of the cast that help to make the film fun.

For a B-Movie film, this isn’t too bad. It’s definitely got a higher budget than most Full Movie films, and for a movie where 85% of the action takes place on the same backdrop of a creepy church, things manage to move nicely.

This film is based on a serial by H.P. Lovecraft and by based I mean, it is very very loosely related to the original story. Lovecraft purists should stay the hell away from this just for that reason. The original story is about a young man learning that his isolationist family has devolved into monkey-men over the years. Here, the monkey-men are replaced by ghouls that live under a church and graveyard and eat people. There’s also the MacGuffin of a dead body stuffed with hundred dollar bills bring the main character and a triad of bad guys to the graveyard (seperately of course) in addition to ghoul hunters who are there because one of that crew had their sister eaten by one.

What follows is entertaining crap and pretty good ghoul costumes for an early 90’s B-movie. Is it a good movie? God no. It’s a FULL MOON MOVIE. You either love Charles Band for making awful crap or you utterly hate the guy. There’s not much room for leeway there.

As Full Moon movies go, this is one of the better ones. It’s not a good movie by any means, but if you’re a fan of cheesy low budget horror, there’s a lot worse out there than this one.

Is It Worth Keeping? No.
Rating: 4/10
