Directed by Stuart Gordon
An American family inherits an Italian castle which houses a bloodthirsty monster in Stuart Gordon's 1995 creature feature loosely based - of course - on an H.P. Lovecraft story. Gordon's favorite lead actor Jeffrey Combs (RE-ANIMATOR) stars as John, a man involved in an accident that claimed his son's life. Grieving and troubled, the family's unprepared for another blast of horror when the deformed beast starts prowling the halls. Gordon's underrated film is anchored by a dark, serious tone that's unlike his more tongue-in-cheek efforts, but still just as scary.

Cast: Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, Jonathan Fuller
It was fiiine. The acting's universally good, the script's okay and it's a cool setting with a decent monster. If you particularly like gore I'd add half a skull but it's not particularly scary or otherwise remarkable.
this is a good one. great atmosphere, great cast, creepy monster, and some memorable disturbing scenes
A little predictable. Full marks on gore and disturbing set pieces. Barely a verson of "The Outsider" beyond the mirror-breaking moment, but the atmosphere is A . Asshole mom never redeems herself, though.
A little preo
A fun but dark movie worth checking out if your looking for something different. Also a rare, but good horror for the 90’s. By 1995 horror movies like this weren’t being made anymore, so it feels more like a gem of the time. So If your a fan of Stuart Gordon and a Gordon/ 90’s horror completist definitely check this out. Also the freak is memorable and scary enough to be put next to the most popular horror slashers and monsters so that’s another reason to check this one out.
