A Great Movie!
14 August 1999 | by WritnGuy-2See all my reviews

"Land of the Minotaur" was an impressive movie with a terrific story line and interesting idea.

Tourists in Greece are being used as sacrificial objects for the Minotaur, a Satanic creature of some sorts portrayed as a bull. After three characters are taken to the castle where the rituals are practiced, a young woman and a friend arrive, meeting with a priest. The woman is, I think, the wife or girlfriend of one of the three tourists from the beginning. And this boyfriend is the only surviving tourist of that three, because the others were killed.

That night, the woman, the friend, and the priest are attacked by the worshippers of the cult, who all happen to be the people of the town. Soon the woman is kidnapped, and the friend and the priest must go after her and find her, leading up to the somewhat unexplained and could-have-been-better ending.

All around, a great movie with a great concept. There are a few noteworthy scenes, such as the woman being chased by cult members in the woods and when they were watching her in the bathroom. Both very creepy scenes. All around, a movie worth seeing.
