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 "...Read more ›
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.

Gave this one star because there was no way to give it zero stars. I watched about 20 minutes into it and had to shut it off. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Anon
