The original version of this film is entitled "The Equinox: A Journey Into the Supernatural" (1967) directed by Dennis Muren. This version used the same cast, but includes stop-motion animation not seen in the release version, a totally different storyline, doesn't include the character Asmodeus, has a completely different music score, differently filmed versions of scenes which were in the released film and other differences. Jack Woods is credited as writer and director of the 1970 release version. See more »
Drive-in classic from the '70s. Give these guys a break!
Come on, people! This was a zero-budget student film, for God's sake! You can't assess this movie like you would the latest big-budget studio blockbuster. This was an earnest effort of some FX-crazed kids, who did their damnedest to get some cool stop-motion monster sequences on film as a showcase of their talents. Dennis Muren went on to STAR WARS fame and many Oscars, and the late lamented David Allen enlivened many a crappy Charles Band flick (that's actually a redundancy) with superb effects that always belied the pitiful budget he was given to work with. All I know is, my younger brother and I, both stop-motion fans, saw the trailer for EQUINOX at some long-ago Saturday matinée and KNEW we had to see this film. And when we finally did we thought it was COOL! I'd rather see a continuity-challenged, amateur FX effort like this than any multimillion-dollar CG crapfest like VAN HELSING any day of the week!
