Film Review

**SPOILERS** Checking out a story a year old involving David Fielding newspaper reporter Slone is shocked to find that David has completely lost his mind and is spending most of his time in a padded cell. Not saying a word David clutches on to this crucifix as if it meant dear life to him.It's when Slone shows David a photo of his missing collage professor Dr. Waterman that he goes berserk and in the struggle with Slone and a number of hospital orderlies he loses his crucifix. This has the normally passive David get so disruptive that he has to be strapped into a straight-jacket.At David's attending doctors, the renowned Swedish physician Dr. Johanson, office Slone hears a tape that Dr. Johanson made a year ago when David was admitted to the hospital. Overlooked at first as the ratings and ravings of a madman the tape soon reveals the truth about what exactly happened to David and his collage friends Jim Susan & Vicki and why David cracked up because of it.In an hour long …

"Equinox" is a low-budget and wholly independent precursor of Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead" about a group of teenagers,who accidentally unleash supernatural forces after reading passages from a mysterious book Necronomicon found in the woods.The main difference between "Equinox" and "The Evil Dead" is that the latter is drenched with gore and violence,whilst"Equinox" plays more like 50's creature feature combined with cheesy stop-motion monster roaming the woods.I must say that the stop motion monster effects are pretty impressive as are the split screen effects.The acting is amateurish and the writing leaves a lot to be desired.Who would of ever guessed that Park Ranger Asmodeus would turn out to be Satan incarnate.Still strong 8 out of 10.

A very low budget horror film that is successful on many levels. Originality, cool settings, great photography, several monsters { although they do look cheesy} and a very eerie atmosphere. Granted, the acting is quite amateurish but that can be overlooked because of the other noteworthy achievements in this film. I am convinced that Sam Raimi seen this film and based much of his Evil Dead on the ideas presented in this movie { although Raimi claims he never heard of or seen Equinox prior to his movie Evil Dead} . Equinox makes my list of top ten favorite horror films of all time and certainly is much more interesting and original then the consistently overrated and praised Halloween. Check Equinox out and remember that it was made by a bunch of mostly unknowns with a starting budget of $6,500…..
