Tommy Dean Musset,
Based on a short story by H.P. Lovecraft, the undisputed master of the macabre, Dagon tells the story of Paul Marsh, a young man who discovers that the truth will not set him free instead it condemns him to a waking nightmare of unrelenting horror. A boating accident off the coast of Spain sends Paul and his girlfriend Barbara to the decrepit fishing village of Imboca looking for help. As night falls, people start to disappear and things not quite human start to appear. Paul finds himself pursued by the entire town. Running for his life, he uncovers Imboca's dark secret: that they pray to Dagon, a monstrous god of the sea. And Dagon's unholy offspring are freakish half-human creatures on the loose in Imboca...

In the original plot Howard, Vicki, Paul and Bárbara travel in the boat celebrating the success of their company "dot.com", named after the term and domain name created in 1995 (which in tern is derived from the word "commercial"). Curiously, when Paul returns to the ship looking for Howard and Vicki, it can be seen that the name of the ship is "RedHen.com". See more »
In the house full of water, Abuelo forces Paul's head into a filthy toilet. When the toilet is shown in the same scene, it is totally white. See more »
Before you came, there had been no sacrifices for a year. Dagon needs her.
Yes, and their child will be immortal!
Yeah, but there's a catch. It has to live the rest of its life as some kind of half-ass fish of the sea.
In joy, with Dagon!

why cant horror/fantasy like this get a bigger release...
TINY SPOILER ...when heaps like THE CAVE, THE CORE, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS (remake)get spread over every other cinema (UK experience)? It has budget related flaws and couple of cheesy moments, but when you compare it in the imagination and shear stick-to-a-weird-story spirit department it piddles all over most movies, never mind recent offerings from a 'fringe' genre like fantasy/horror.
This captures HP Lovecraft ideals with a mix of tongue in check cheese, sincere homage, inspired interpretation and a measure of terror and gore that fits the mood perfectly.
The acting is... passionate, the prosthetics competent and the pace/plot/script often inspiring (seriously - apart from the Star Wars moment... you'll know when it happens).
Good looking - good effort - so why am I more likely to see a sequel to THE CAVE on the big screen than a film of this ilk? Makes me want to take up reading.
