Dagon (Spain, 200?)

Post by Wallace on Sat Mar 15, 2014 3:50 pm

Two of Lovecraft's most potent tales deal with obesieances made to an ancient race of sea gods by inhabitants of remote Massesschusets fishing villages.These are the masterpiece "Shadow over Innsmouth" and "Dagon".


In Dagon, the village has gone to wet rot & ruin. Continual rain. The inhabitants are deformed, with webbed hands & feet...very slowly turning into creatures of the sea themselves.

Although the guy in this film is wearing a shirt with "Miskatonic" (University) logo-ed on it, this action takes place in a decrepit, fish-stenched Spanish village. "Rayos!" (Thats "motherfucker!" in spanish.) Holy shades of Monty Python sketch "Costa del sol, Torrie Aminos...Tori Aminos...!

Wish they would make a proper film version of this. The author Ligotti has a wicked story along the same lines.
