Not sure if I missed this movie back in the 90s or if it wasn't memorable. But here I am in 2014 watching a 90s movie that looks more like an 80s movie.
Something happened in a house. Bodies are being dragged away. A guy named Howard survived and now he has visions of a creature. A guy named Carter was standing nearby so he's a witness. But he investigates into the house and discovers a scary past, involving the Necronomicon. He enlists another professor and of they go into a cave beneath the house. Howard is also with them but he stays outside.
Inside the cave they find a creature, that's a pairing of a woman--the daughter of the former house owner--and a demon. They manage to separate the two. Carter takes the girl with him to the university. The scholar stays behind researching the demon, which ends up killing him. But the girl feels that the demon is going to come after her. And sure enough the demon appears and Carter, the girl, some friends, the cops all have to face the demon.
This movie can be credited with one achievement, a very questionable one though: it stars Maria Ford and Julie Strain in 1992 and yet shows no nudity. Ford is not wearing clothes for a good part of the movie, but a huge wig covers up her body. It would have been even a greater annoyance in the 90s when the two ladies where in their soft-core heyday.
Aside from that major weakness, the movie is of course slow, 15 minutes longer than it needs to be. It feature some good acting and some poor acting. It has good physical gore and prosthetic effects, and some cheesy visual effects. The story is alright but more could have been made of it. And of course a lot more could have been done with such a cast.
