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.

Well it is good in my opinion
30 April 2009 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

In my opinion this film is really good filming of HP Lovecraft I really like most of the film. It includes a lot of effects and the underground creatures look really great here. SO, people who enjoyed Rreanimator will see cool Jeffrey Combs here. He plays a doctor and plays great.This Full Moon film is rather cool. The story includes some bandits seeking for money , a group of people fighting against terrific monsters who live under the ground of a church with priest who tries to help them.

They want to destroy the world of immortal monsters who eat humans and live under one cemetery. They brought dynamite and are preparing to explode the church and cemetery when money-seeking bastards come and the mess starts.

Great , although it is still far beyond Lovecraft's original style.
