Imprisoning a group of people in a living hell of darkness and death the Puppetmaster controls the fate of each one.

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 "

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.

Yep, I went ahead and watched THE TOMB, knowing full well that it might not be all that great. H.P. LOVECRAFT's name is in the title, and is mentioned a few times in the movie for no apparent reason. Other than that, he has nothing to do w/ this back-alley abortion. Two bad actors wake up in a warehouse, talk aimlessly, and wander around for 90 minutes. THE END. Meanwhile, the viewers brain shrinks and bleeds. Please, avoid this "film" as you would a rabid raccoon! Learn from my hideous mistake...

**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.
