Drive-in classic from the '70s. Give these guys a break!
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 their talents. Dennis Muren went on to STAR WARS fameand many Oscars, and the late lamented David Allen enlivened many acrappy Charles Band flick (that's actually a redundancy) with superbeffects that always belied the pitiful budget he was given to workwith. All I know is, my younger brother and I, both stop-motion fans,saw the trailer for EQUINOX at some long-ago Saturday matinée and KNEWwe had to see this film. And when we finally did we thought it wasCOOL! I'd rather see a continuity-challenged, amateur FX effort likethis than any multimillion-dollar CG crapfest like VAN HELSING any dayof the week!
