Editorial Reviews

Based on a story by the master of outrageous horror, H.P. Lovecraft, this bloodcurdling film introduces the "Puppetmaster." Imprisoning a group of people in a living hell of darkness and death the Puppetmaster controls the fate of each one. One by one, the captives awake in agonizing pain - some are slightly injured, others are fatally wounded. The survivors are also mentally tortured by the unseen villain, who demands that there can be only one winner at this game

I was never really into Edgar Allan Poe, even before I heard "The Tell-Tale Heart" way too many times as an oral interp at high school speech meets. But when I heard Rod Serling talking about how H.P. Lovecraft had written his chilling little tale "The Haunter of the Dark)" as something of a joke, repaying Robert Bloch for killing off a Lovecraft character in "The Shambler of the Stars" by killing off a character named Robert Blake, I had to check the guy out. I was soon reading everything by Lovecraft that I could get my hands on and I still remember making the mistake of reading "At the Mountains of Madness" late one night and then having a lot of trouble getting to sleep.

So when you slap the title "H.P. Lovecraft's The Tomb" on a DVD I am going to check it out, even though as a rule the adaptations of Lovecraft's stories have been rather disappointing. But when I actually watch the movie and discover that it has nothing to do with Lovecraft's short story, does not take place in a tomb, and is really a rip-off of "Saw" that should have been entitled "Ulli Lommel's The Warehouse," I get pretty ticked off. In fact, I want to drive to Miskatonic University in Arkham, Massachusetts, get my hands on their copy of the "Necronomicon" by the "Mad Arab" Abdul Alhazred, and bring down the wrath of the Old Ones down on the heads of those responsible for this abomination.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful; Don't waste your money!! June 19, 2007
I rented this from my local video store. I am a horror movie fan; I even ocassionally enjoy cheesy predictable horror movies if they have some redeeming aspect. "The Tomb" has none. The production quality of this movie is awful. It is like an 80's porn flick (not that I have seen one, lol). The music is equally awful. The acting is awful. The plot (and I use that term lighlty) is awful and, as far as I can tell, is a direct rip-off of the "Saw" movies. Frankly, I couldn't bear to watch it after about 20 minutes and I turned it off. It appeared it would be quite gory from the few minutes that I watched but what is gore without anything else to support it? Boring. Avoid this movie at all costs.

Oh well this is bad. I mean this is really bad. I had really hoped that this would be a great horror movie. I always loved The Tomb story. A great story, mind you. A really wonderful story. I do not know why I rented this really bad movie. I think that slamming a ball bat against my head would be far more amusing than this silly movie. No. Wait. This wasn't a silly movie. This was an atrocious movie. One of the sins of this movie is that it has no pace, this movie has no tension, this movie has no characterization. I watched this movie with hope but it has no hope. I really think you should not even look at this movie. Dont rent it. Dont buy it, definitely. So many things were wrong with this movie. They only taped Lovecraft's name to it to make you want to see it. It has really nothing to do with the original story, nothing to do with Lovecraft's writer's worldview. A pointless movie. Should never have been made.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even worth a free viewing. Avoid! October 11, 2008
**spoiler alert**

This movie is like a high-school film class's ripoff of "Saw", except without the somewhat-creative deaths. People inside coffins spontaneously appear and usually end up just croaking within five minutes. There was one scene where a guy was literally jogging in place on a beach. The "tomb" where they are imprisoned literally looks like a warehouse from a Halloween novelty shop. There are Halloween store-caliber props everywhere. Like another poster mentioned, too, it keeps showing their captor moving around above them because the ceiling of the "tomb" is made of slats and there is probably nothing stopping the people from breaking through and getting out.

I love horror movies and I am very forgiving of low production values, but this one was just too much for words. It also didn't help that I couldn't hear what the actors were saying half the time (which I suppose was a blessing in disguise) and it was just plain boring. Basically it was a man and a woman wandering around this basement and every once in a while the guy above them would drop little pieces of paper down through the floor/basement ceiling that had "clues" written on them. Also, it is riddled with "flashbacks" that are supposed to show how the people had connections to the guy who kidnapped them, but by the time you get to those parts in the movie you probably won't care anyway.

My cable company ran this as part of their free video-on-demand thing and it wasn't even worth the free viewing. It was still 81 minutes of my life wasted.

Avoid at all costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars H.P. Lovecraft The Tomb (Of a bad movie) July 3, 2007
Lovecraft is honestly my favorite writer of all time. I don't read it for the Occult aspects (All hail the Old Ones!) Or because he came up with mythical creations beyond space and time (Cthulhu fhtagn!!). I read Lovecraft for his ideas on what truly is scary.
"The Tomb" short story is about a MAN who visits his family's tomb only to be confronted by his horrible destiny of his ancestors.
"H.P. Lovecraft's The Tomb" is about a group of people tortured by a puppet master of sorts. He wears a white mask like face garment, talks through a speaker system, and shows up on a messy TV. Sounds like another movie, it's called "SAW". Honestly I didn't like SAW either, but at least the gore was real and the plot was original.
Let us circle around again the Lovecraft name. Lovecraft has maybe 2 or three stories where a woman was involved as a main person. Lovecraft really didn't write about women. So why is there a movie bearing his name that has several of them? One being part of the man focus? That is not Lovecraften!
So back to the whole focus here. This movie has nothing to do with Lovecraft except its title. It is horribly written, badly taped (Are those the same cams they use for COPS?), and bad special effects, there is not a shred of good in the movie.
So run away from it! Stay away! (may Dagon eat you, writers of this movie!)Learn from my mistake, read first, then rent!
And remember just because it says Lovecraft doesn't mean it has anything to do with him!
