A mediocre but moderately entertaining horror film
The Devil's Tomb has a classic "B" cinema plot, and it counts on its cast with various actors of a medium caliber, something which is not usual on this kind of movies.That could indicate an excellent screenplay...or actors who sacrificed their dignity in order to win some money.The Devil's Tomb is somewhere in the middle of that...its screenplay is not very good, but it is not bad either, and the movie is not bad to say that the actors sacrificed their dignity.In summary, we are in presence of a mediocre but moderately entertaining horror film.
On the previously mentioned cast, we have Cuba Gooding Jr., an Academy Award winning actor who sent his career to hell after participating on horrible comedies (like Boat Trip) and laughable dramas (like Radio); The Devil's Tomb is better than the movies he tends to participate, but that does not mean this film is very good.And, on the cast, we also have Ray Winstone, Ron Perlman, Taryn Manning and Bill Moseley.It was very weird for me to see them participating on a low-budget and straight-to-DVD horror film.The reason of that may be its director, Jason Connery (son of the famous Sean), making his first work as a director with material which is familiar to him, because he has participated as an actor on other straight-to-DVD horror films (like Brotherhood of Blood and Alone in the Dark 2).The main fail from The Devil's Tomb is that it has many clichés.
Connery made a decent work, because he keeps a good rhythm and he created a few sequences which produce adequate atmosphere and suspense.Besides, the story may not be too original and, as I mentioned before, it has many clichés, but it is well structured more or less.I also appreciated the energy and enthusiasm shown on the performances.
In conclusion, I will give a slight recommendation to this mediocre but moderately entertaining movie, although the final experience is forgettable.However, I cannot deny this movie ended up being a bit better than I expected.
