If you saw this film when you were in your teens then you are in luck, foryou will think it was a wonderful curiosity. For so many years, the filmstayed inside my head and I wondered what ever became of it. Finally, itwas on cable one night and I managed to see it all over again. Of course,being ol...
{This review includes comments on EQUINOX (Jack Woods, 1970) **1/2}When this was first announced as a Criterion release, I was onlyvaguely familiar with it; I purchased the 2-Disc Set recently (as itwas on sale) without really knowing what to expect; the result iscertainly interesting – especia...
Come on, people! This was a zero-budget student film, for God's sake!You can't assess this movie like you would the latest big-budget studioblockbuster. This was an earnest effort of some FX-crazed kids, who didtheir damnedest to get some cool stop-motion monster sequences on filmas a showcase of th...
Story: A professor has found an evil book with spells that brings evilto life. He has invited a group of students to his cabin in the woods.They arrive and find the cabin destroyed. They must now battle evilstop motion monsters in this low budget monster movie.Review I did not realize that there wer...
Watch this movie late at night, in the right mood, when you're about 12years old and it's really good. Watch it older, or more cynically, andyou will probably find it silly.It's vaguely Lovecraft-inspired, about four young people who go lookingfor an old professor they know who's living in a cabin i...
I love this movie, could watch it over and over...The reason I like it so much is just the whole idea behind it. Plus theclaymation is pretty cool! The way they act is hilarious (to meanyway), almost like an old Leave it to Beaver, the way they talked inthose episodes. Combine that with what they ar...
Spoilers ahead, perhaps. A moderate horror fan, I had never heard of`Equinox' at the time I popped it in (nor had I read any IMDBuser-comments). But until Sam Raimi personally tells me he did not seethisfilm prior to making the `Evil Dead' flicks, I'm going to assume he haspaidloving homage to thi...
I love bad movies. This is a bad movie. I was channel flipping and saw oneof the monsters cavorting about until gored by a sharp stick. I had towatchafter that. Truly bad acting, unintelligible plot and a swarthy demon withthe classic "Bru haa haa haa" laugh that only is done in the worst ofmovies. ...
Bad, good, it doesn't matter. This is one of the great film labors oflove. Rent the criterion edition and do as I did. Listen to thecommentary over the Muren cut of the film. Then Switch to the JackHarris, Jack Woods commentary over their cut. I was under the falseimpression as I watched the kids cu...
Four friends, David, Vicki, Jim and Susan, head out into the woods tovisit David's professor, Dr. Waterman. They find Waterman'homedestroyed, the professor missing, and a mysterious book. It soonbecomes apparent that in meddling with the book, Waterman accidentallyopened a portal to another, hellish...
It seems somehow quaint, now, but way back in 1970, this one scared thedaylights out of me. The televised trailer (everything was black andwhite in them days) was downright spooky. I absolutely, positively hadto see this one. And I did. And I wasn't disappointed. Nor am Idisappointed to see it now, ...
A very low budget horror film that is successful on many levels.Originality, cool settings, great photography, several monsters {although they do look cheesy} and a very eerie atmosphere. Granted, theacting is quite amateurish but that can be overlooked because of theother noteworthy achievements in...
I remember this film quite well, when VCR's first hit the market andwere way expensive - my mother would go to the video store and pay$15.00 a week to rent a top loader (yeah) and the first movie I pickedout was this one. I enjoyed the hell out of it. My mother wonderedabout me and I think she grew ...
"Equinox" is a low-budget and wholly independent precursor of SamRaimi's "The Evil Dead" about a group of teenagers,who accidentallyunleash supernatural forces after reading passages from a mysteriousbook Necronomicon found in the woods.The main difference between"Equinox" and "The Evil Dead" is tha...
~Spoiler~ Equinox is a bit of a paradox. It's not really a good movie, from atechnical standpoint. The acting is laughable, the voice-over isterrible, and the direction is nothing to write home about. However,the storyline is so ahead of its time and would influence countlessfilmmakers years later. ...
It's a fun spooky movie with a different look and without the usualnighttime menace. It's also an independent production that managed somenotoriety, mainly for surprisingly impressive special effects.Actually, Equinox was sort of the Blair Witch Project of its day—abunch of unknowns hitting it ...
David gets a call from a friend named Dr. Waterman to visit him at hisremote cabin in the woods. Tagging along is David's friend Jim, hisgirlfriend Vicki and Susan. They arrive at the cabin but find itdestroyed with no sign of Dr. Waterman. Then there's the strange parkranger, the castle in the dist...
THERE BE SPOILERS HERE When I was a kid in Xenia, Ohio, the local movietheater sent fliers to the elementary schools advertising their weekendmatinées, and I vividly recall the incredible poster art from "TheValley of Gwangi" and "Equinox Occult Barrier Between Good & Evil"which sent me running to ...
This movie tends to get panned across the board. Many people see it forwhat it is on the surface, a low budget crap-o-rama. And, I do agreethere is a lot of awful things about this film. The special effects arecirca 1954. There are a lot of cheesy animated scenes with the beasts.But, this can be ove...
A professor, Dr. Waterman(Fritz Leiber Jr) accidentally unleashesdemonic terror in a forest and four young adults are the ones who mustsquare off with monsters created by Asmodeus(Jack Woods, the directorwho would pad the student short film into a full feature film),possibly the Devil himself. Asmod...
I saw this film as a kid, too, and still remember how the castle andthe pit of hell were so intriguing. I didn't know, though, that therewere two versions--the original, low-budget 1967 version "The Equinox,"filmed by a couple of teenagers; and the 1970 re-vision of the samefilm, simply titled "Equi...
I first saw this film a little while ago under the title of The Beast.The first viewing of it I wasn't sure what to make of it. I love thestop motion and all of the special effects but something about themovie didn't catch my interest. When Criterion decided to release thison DVD with both versions ...
The best thing on this DVD is the introduction by the late great ForrieAckerman. The movie itself is rather creative considering that it wasmade by a bunch of teenagers in their backyard. Still, that doesn'tmake it a good film. It's a bit like kindergarten macaroni art made byLeonardo Da Vinci; hist...
Yes, it's an amateur 16mm film with stop motion effects, yes it hasbad acting and a thin plot - but the people around here who chortle atwhat a "bad movie" it is (and invoking the loathesome, vandalizingMST3K) are missing a lot. The film has it's own irrational beautyand eccentric charm, and anybod...
I saw this when i was about 12 and it sent shivers down my spine/ a true bmovie but well worth the time to find in a video store. If you see it youwill see it has been ripped off by 2 many films to mention.Yes the s effects are as cheap as an ed wood feature but the story is whatwill get your blood ...
