Trivia

On the crew's last day shooting in Astoria, a storm began which took out all the power in the city for several hours, and ruined three of the film's locations: the windows were blown out of the net shed, ruining thousands of dollars worth of materials stored within: the house where Tori Spelling's character Susan lives was partially destroyed by the fall of the hundred-year-old tree in the driveway (visible in the film); and the entire cul-de-sac on which Julia's house stands came down the hill in a mudslide.

Weird, but never quite comes together.
27 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this movie. I'm a big fan of the Cthulu mythos, and the preview actually looked pretty good.

Unfortunately, this is yet another disappointing release from HERE TV.

The frustrating thing is that the movie almost works. There are a lot of wonderfully creepy little details: the bizarre check out girl who passes the protagonist a warning note, the strange kids saying "I knew you'd be back", the crazy things being reported on the news.

Unfortunately, the film never really gels. I never felt scared, or even particularly interested in what was going to happen to the main character. About half way though the film, the plot breaks down almost completely and weird random events seem to take over everything.

The film was at least mildly interesting in a "what sort of weird stuff will they throw out next" sort of way, but never really worked as a story.

Cinematography varies from some very nice shots of the ocean to some very amateurish hand held stuff.
