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.

This witless exercise isn't an HP Lovecraft adaptation so much as a shameless grave robbery. Even the presence of horror cult favorite Jeffrey Combs (wasted in a minor role) can't save the halting story or painful dialogue. Producer Charles Band can do a fun Lovecraft movie (see Re-Animator and From Beyond, both made a decade earlier). But his Full Moon studio is better known for sleazy camp, and that touch is grubbily all over this film: "I'll bet you're a lousy lay -- no energy!" sneers one woman character fighting another in a tacked-on mud wrestling scene. There was apparently a bit of a budget, a few mildly interesting sets were assembled, and the opening sequence hints at what might have been a passable B-movie; the rest holds no interest at all.
