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.

Not as well constructed as Re-Animator (pun intended...) but an interesting watch. The "monster" has a weak back story and is just silly.
far from perfect but has a good unsettling tone.
It's fine lol. Nothing special. I think a remake could do it justice.
If for some bizarre reason (a coma?) you haven't yet seen it, watch Re-animator, Stuart Gordon's other film instead. It's terrific. This one- not so much
I'd love to finish this movie, but it keeps speeding up after about 5 seconds of watching it.
