I remember seeing this movie years ago. basically it was typical of thesemovies to have plots similar to these. what made this one special wasactually showing the creatures to see such animation or is it"dynimation".whatever. Usually they show a guy in bad makeup.There is an alternate version of the...
There's a lot about this movie that is "bad." It's not shot verycreatively, sort of a point-the-camera-at-the-action thing. Thelighting is very flat and the look is grainy, like an old family s8mmfilm. The special effects are extremely dated, with choppy stop motionmonsters and obvious double exposu...
Heading out into the mountains, a group of friends find a slew ofdemonic agents running through the woods trying to recover a book ofSatanic incantations they've stumbled upon and try to get out beforethey fall victim to the beings.A pretty enjoyable, if utterly cheesy effort that treads a fine line...
Objectively a crappy movie but for a amateur project it do feature someawesome creature effects and it's not hard to tell what the filmmakerscared for the most.Teenagers on a picnic comes across an ancient book, that can open thepath to a parallel dimension and unleash monsters. The book alsofeature...
There are two versions: the student film and the theatrical film. Ithink I am better off with the student film. The theatrical filminvolved a main villain which was the forest ranger that can turn intoa flying demon. This film, like DARK STAR (1974), is pretty good for astudent film, but pretty bad ...
Naw, this is a great movie. Well, OK, it's not quite great, but it'sprettygood. Actually, it's not even maybe all that good but I like it anyway.Thestop motion animation is of very high quality when you consider that thefolks who made this had something like fifty cents to spend on it. Theanimated s...
When I rented this, I thought, "Oh God, this is going to be a totalcheesefest." And it was. From the animated box cover that reminded me ofallthose cheesy movie posters in the fifties and sixties, to the bad acting,tothe claymation, to the confusing ending, it was all cheese. But lookingback, I LOVE...
When I first saw this on TV's "Late Late Show," in 1974, I wastransfixed by what I thought was a cheaply shot 'teenage' devil moviethat actually had an unusual story and some very bizarre specialeffects, making the film seem very creepy for 12:30 a.m.It's the story of four teenagers discovering an a...
I remember staying up to watch this movie one weekend when I was injunior high: that would be somewhere around 1975. I had completelyforgotten its existence until 1999, when I saw "The Blair WitchProject" in the theater. A few months later "Equinox" aired on AmericanMovie Classics, confirming my ori...
although this movie had it's limitations... getting into the hands ofJack Woods.. may have been the best thing that happened to this futurecult classic..... Woods provides us with an eerie-jaw droppingperformance(big lips-drooling-facial expressions)... as a disturbedpark ranger(asmodeus).. while 4-...
This is why the Criterion Collection rocks. No other companies wouldgive an obscure drive-in flick such as "Equinox" such a loving andcomprehensive DVD release. The DVD release contains both versions ofthe film available to compare and contrast.A little back story first. In 1967, amateur filmmaker D...
This is one of those movies that you hunt through TV Guide (summarized,as I recall, "Low-budget flick about monsters, devil worship, and thesupernatural") hoping to find. As it is, I haven't seen it in a goodlytwenty years. That's O.K., though: I can remember most of the plot asthough I saw it yeste...
Equinox is a semi-enjoyable, no-budget horror flick said to be a biginfluence on Raimi's Evil Dead. Well, I finally saw it and here's someof the things I noticed that resembled Evil Dead: set in the woods, agroup of youths, minor use of a cabin and tape recorder, a cross on anecklace, an evil book (...
Equinox is a real good entertaining film. It's been rumored that this isthe film that inspired "Evil Dead". The story is about 4 teen-agers(probibly 19) who go out in the woods to see their college professer and tohave a picnic. Dr. Waterman, the professer, is missing and his home isdestroyed. They ...
Equinox was an amateur film which had scenes added for it's theatricalrelease. The casts ages, scenes don't match, and it's sometimes confusing.But the film is quite good, especially if you're a fan of this stuff. Themonsters weren't as poorly done as you'd expect, and the ending truly isbizarre.A m...
One thing the first reviewer got right is that this started out as astudentproject with some special effects by future Oscar-winner Dennis Muren. Andthe actor Ed Begley Jr was an assistant cameraman on thisfilm.Then Producer Jack H Harris, who, I believe worked with Kubrick on somefilms in the 50's...
This movie scared me a lot when I was a little kid. The demon with thewingsis so weird, scary and realistic. As far as I remember it was excellentandvery mysterious special effects. Really awesome horror fantasy on thelevelof H.P.Lovecraft. It is difficult not to believe that some of this is"real". ...
First, a confession: I just finished writing a review of "Touch ofSatan", and I had to find a bit of weirdness I could remember fondly and ona positive note. Then, I remembered "Equinox". I'm not sure what I can addto all the preceding opinions, except that they're right, this is not meantto be...
Spoiled Generation Xers and the Young Millennials Who Haven't Stoppedto Think Much About it, Make Stupid Remarks About This Labor of Lovethat Are, To Be Kind, Uninformed. They Just Do Not Have a Clue Just HowDifficult it was to Make a Movie in the 1960's with VirtuallyNo-Budget.In the Pre Digital Ag...
Just what IS an amateur movie as opposed to a low-budget, independentfilm? EQUINOX was made by a group of special effects-loving friends ofcollege age; they shot it over several months, taking special care with theeffects. Which, as someone else points out, certainly are not "claymation,"but st...
Granted that there are only so many plotlines to go around, but I was stillstruck by the resemblances between this movie and the later Evil Dead / EvilDead 2 (the latter being a sort of remake / sequel) -- four college kids inthe woods, lonely cabin, evil book translated by professor, demonicpossess...
This film was made by Dennis Muren (later Oscar winner for JURASSIC PARK andTERMINATOR 2) while he was in college and he later sold it to Jack Harriswho shot other scenes and released it to theaters. It has some neatlow-budget special effects shots which probably looked a lot better in 1971when it ...
Please understand. When I give this only a 2/10, that really is apretty accurate assessment of the quality of the movie in almost everyrespect. I'm not knocking the kids who made it. It was apparently doneby a bunch of relatively inexperienced young people on a shoestringbudget, and I respect the ef...
This movie could almost be considered a best-of compilation ofpreviously-discovered visual effects, cult film conceits, and camp. Thestory itself is reminiscent of old movies from Attack of the GilaMonster to Haxan, the imagery covers the world from Godzilla and KingKong to Vertigo, the themes inclu...
"Equinox" is so exquisitely crap-tacular, I have to give it such a highrating. This film really enters the heights that "Plan 9 from OuterSpace" rules, and possibly surpasses that legendary Ed Wood opus. Itdoesn't just fail magnificently, but does so in SO many ways.Where else will you find such del...
