Storyline

Filmen handlar om fyra personer som ska ha en mysig helg i stugan och sedan skiter det sig. En monsterfilm inspirerad av H.P Lovecraft.

Philip (Julius Tyrling) mår inte bra. Någonting fruktansvärt har hänt och det är upp till hans psykolog (Torgny Handreck) att finna svaren. Philip börjar med psykologens vägledning att nysta upp en historia som började redan på medeltiden. Ett odödligt monster, en shoggoth, blir tillfångatagen och inspärrad med ett magiskt sigill. Philip fortsätter berätta hur han hämtar sina vänner. Den nördiga oskulden Carl (Daniel Kristiansson), den oborstade översittaren Joseph (Nathaniel Johansson) och tjejkompisen Sarah (Therese Andersson). Tillsammans ger de sig långt ut i skogen till Josephs stuga. När Joseph och Philip ser sig om i terrängen råkar de trampa på det uråldriga sigillet och shoggothen släpps fri. Väktaren, en ättling till den medeltida mobben som fångade shoggothen, känner ondskan i luften och försöker rädda ungdomarna. Väktaren förser stugan med ...

An amusing amateur horror film
29 December 2012 | by RymdkejsarenSee all my reviews

Shoggoth is the first film of amateur film-makers Martin Strauss and Jens Wadenius, who started the project without any skill or experience in the field. Despite this they have managed to produce an almost hour-long film that keeps the viewers in their seats and even has them laughing along the way.

The film is inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft mythos, and the cinematography and storytelling is reminiscent of 80's low budget horror films like The Evil Dead. It is a film that does not take itself seriously and therefore it is easier to forgive the many flaws that inevitably plague an amateur project with an extremely low budget.

The production has many problem areas including sound and picture quality, camera work, pacing, continuity and special effects. Yet these very flaws lend the film a certain charm and it is also notable that a lot of classic mistakes and pitfalls made by amateur film-makers are avoided.

The amateur cast offer mediocre performances overall, with the shining exception of Julius Tyrling who carries much of the film with his quirky, overacted nice-guy performance. Another big positive is the well-made musical soundtrack, without which the film would have suffered greatly.

These are the tentative first steps of two amateur film makers that show potential promise for future projects.
