Dagon (director Stuart Gordon in person!)

Legendary horror director Stuart Gordon’s most faithful and unsettling cinematic trip to the H.P. Lovecraft well! Adapted from Lovecraft’s “Shadow over Innsmouth”, Dagon follows a group of vacationers stranded in a Spanish fishing village — one whose inhabitants seem controlled by a shadowy, malignant force. Things are “fishy” in more ways than one, and Gordon masterfully piles on the creeping dread and slimy shocks with the reckless conviction of one deeply steeped in Lovecraftian lore. Anchored by a performance from co-star Ezra Godden that seems lifted directly from the author’s fevered pages, Dagon is a wet and wild ride that gets weirder with each passing scene, leaving you with one of the most bizarre endings of any horror film of the 2000s and beyond. Criminally overlooked, this fish is still fresh, and is one you don’t want to get away — so climb aboard with us and director Stuart Gordon, producer Brian Yuzna and co-star Ezra Godden, who will all be here in person for a Q&A after the film!
Dir. Stuart Gordon, 2001, 35mm, 98 min.
