Awful. A miscalculation in every way.
7 October 2012 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

In the vein of Shaun of the Dead, this horror comedy follows three buddies, one the last descendant of H.P. Lovecraft, trying to keep an ancient relic out of the hands of mutant fish people who want to use it to resurrect Cthulu. It's not a bad idea at all, but this film is miscalculated in just about every way possible. First off, the two main heroes, played by Kyle Davis and Devin McGinn (who wrote the screenplay), are douchebags. Davis, who plays the Lovecraft descendant, has almost no character to speak of. Virtually the only thing we know about him is he hates nerdishness and even used to beat them up in high school (note to filmmakers: who the Hell do you think is watching your H.P. Lovecraft-inspired horror movie?). McGinn has at least some nerdy tendencies (mostly a love for comic books), but he's an annoying little prick with the douchiest haircut this side of Fall Out Boy. These two soon join up with uber-nerd Barak Hardley, a bearded Lovecraft dork who has no friends and lives in his grandmother's basement, and then they constantly tease and bully him. Besides the crappy characters, it has a very lame plot that goes nowhere and ends, presumably, at the point they ran out of money. The fishy people aren't totally awful for such a low-budget film, and there is a decent animated recount of Lovecraft mythology near the beginning. Otherwise, awful. Avoid.
