Cthulhu

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Alex (Gina La Piana) and Petri (Johann Urb) rent a luxurious Airbnb by the seaside in an idyllic village to finally come over the loss of their unborn child in a miscarriage - and while the village itself with its locals all hell-bent on producing their own organic food seems like a bit odd, it does so in a nice, hippie sort of way, and it's the first time Alex and Petri are actually able to relax properly. That is, until Alex suffers from a sick stomach, and while their Airbnb hosts Russel (Robert Miano) and Ingrid (Silvia Spross) send Dr. Gene Rayburn (Timothy Muskatell) over to look after her, they take Petri on a boat trip - where they drug him, then a tentacle growing out of Ingrid's pregnant belly penetrates Petri's mouth ... and he's a changed man after, which is only revealed gradually to Alex and her sarcastic best friend Deb (Jackie Bebatin), when Petri at first vehemently defends the slightly odd habits of the locals, then talks about moving here permanently. At Dr. Rayburn's party that evening, he pretty much ignores Alex and Deb while getting on with the locals a bit too well, especially when they start behaving rather on the bizarre side.

Back home, Alex finds hidden cameras that have been watching her every move in the house, but when Petri returns, he seems to be in a trance, and soon all locals gather - and it becomes more and more clear to Alex that whatever it is they want, she's in imminent danger ...

 

While not based on any one work of H.P. Lovecraft but rather the writer's complex story-spanning mythology as such, The Dead Ones really does the writer justice in spirit, putting an emphasis on an atmosphere of unease, archaic Gods and cults, reptilian creatures and tentacles. And the film spins a really nice yarn tieing all of this together, that doesn't give away too much to soon and for the most favours mood over spectacle. And of course, a grounded and able cast help make this a really cool piece of horror.
