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...

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...
