The town of Leffert's Corners has been plagued by unearthly beings for decades, and now there is only a few people left, including the local priest and a woman traumatised by the death of her sister. But when John Martense turns up to claim his illicit family fortune, with bad guys in pursuit, the last stand had become a lot more complicated. Supposedly based on the writings of H P Lovecraft.

David Hemmings was originally chosen for the role of Bennett, but Jon Finch got the part instead, after it was decided that Hemmings, who had just directed a film that turned out to be a hit, would most likely not want to listen to a new director and do things his own way. Ironically, as it turned out, that's precisely what Finch did. See more »
I spent quite some time looking for this film, only because it stars Jeffrey Combs. Ever since the brilliant "Re-Animator", I suffer from an unhealthy obsession to track down all the flicks Combs ever starred in This is a rather amusing production, loosely based on yet another H.P. Lovecraft tale. The plot involves small time crooks treasure-hunting for big loot that is supposedly hidden in a corpse buried in the Leffert Corners cemetery. Coincidentally, the inhabitants of this little town are fighting a bloody battle with carnivore demons on that same cemetery. The budget is obviously low and so most of the make-up effects look more cheesy than scary. There's practically no tension or humor, only a bit of entertaining demon action and fairly good acting performances by a decent B-movie cast. Besides Jeffrey Combs, who stars as the physically weak but sarcastic town's doctor, "Lurking Fear" also has Hellraiser's Ashley Lauren as a demon-butt-kicking babe. There also is a small role for Vincent Schiavelli! The name might not mean much to you but you'll surely recognize his face when you're familiar with B-movies.
