Our Score
In director Don Coscarelli's fantasy horror with a science-fiction twist, Angus Scrimm impresses as the demon who sends human victims into another dimension where they become slave dwarves. Don't even ask! As wildly imaginative as it's totally illogical, this film's main concern is to shock you senseless. With its unforgettable flying sphere that drills out brains, a macabre fun-house mortuary, severed fingers and cemetery romance, Coscarelli's lurid chiller easily fulfils that lofty aim.

Summary

A teenager finds himself drawn to a morgue patrolled by a sinister figure, and eventually discovers the place is used as a base for all manner of gruesome deeds. Horror, starring A Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury and Reggie Bannister.
