Horror Trivia

Before "The Tomb" Poe's short history had moved to cinema and from the great Roger Corman with ' The Tomb of Ligeia "of 1964.

The story moves very fast switching from one event to another with excessive speed. As a result the film loses in cohesion being a classic example of work odd jobs, extremely kakoftiagmenis. It is a pity to see notable actors such as Eric Roberts and Michael Madsen to charamizontai in this Holey as Director and film which not only cannot support its inclusion in horror films, nor in any other category. Mysticism of Plaka, tragicomic mix magic and science and culture pseytogkothik adoption of the wicked "witch" are the unsavory ingredients of the recipe failed "The Tomb". The Wes Bentley confirms how atalantos is and any movie set in starring role will probably fail. Instead the sensual Russian Sofya Skya is more convincing than the pretentious dark image that recruits.

Children's effects of pent souls in jars and tubes are reminiscent of 80s movie B complementing the overall image of The decadent "Tomb". Some characters show unlikely to achreiastoi in a feeble plot which vainly tries to create suspense and keep the interest. Even her partner mystikistrias unduly disappears after a point although it seemed that you played an important role. Not deceive the impressive trailer. And I so I pressed and I saw it. Like film is unacceptable and unexpectedly untidy. Definitely wants rich talent to set up a serious horror film magical/mystical themes and contributors to The ' Tomb ' is not supplied.

The imposing presence of Russian Sofya Skya, few scenes with nuggets of dark atmosphere.


Weak direction within the boundaries of amateurism, badly written and Holey scenario, use, inadequate atalantos co-star of many characters.
