Lurking Fear is a forgotten 1994 horror film that bears the same title as the popular short story by H.P Lovecraft. This tale of a terrifying creature comes to life with the help of director C. Courtney Joyner (Trancers 3) and finally, after all these years, sees a stunning Blu-Ray release compliments to Full Moon Entertainment, but does it hold a candle to other Full Moon titles? Take a bite and read below!

John Martense -- a crime lord played by Blake Adams (Head of the Family) -- is frustrated that he breaks the law continuously. He finally decides to commit one last and final crime, to grave-rob his deceased father’s corpse and obtain what is rightfully his. This may not be the best idea Martense has had in his entire life, for he will immediately regret it as the film progresses.

Too bad for John, and a former associate of his father, who is hell-bent on the fortune, for they will fight to the death to get it. Unfortunately for them, they have no idea that what lies below in the graveyard is pure hell on earth, full of supernatural forces and beings, who have one thing on their minds, death and destruction.

Lurking Fear displays two decades in one film. It is part ‘80s, and part ‘90s in many a ways. You have fringed bangs, high waisted jeans, audio cassettes and special effects. All of these may feel like ancient artefacts to the common moviegoer, but this film is special in a lot of aspects, because it has the late night movie appeal to it, like a lot of early 90’s horror films have had.

Lurking Fear still has some flaws, but what movie doesn’t? It is still a recommendable motion picture though. The main creature wears a rubber suit and has no back story, really, but regardless the creature is still terrifying, even though he looks a bit synthetic. The church backdrop adds a lot of strength and gothic appeal, and the whole night of horrors that fills up the sky, it is magic to any seasoned horror fans ears. Scream King, Jeffrey Combs of Re-Animator has a juicy part as a drunk. Lurking Fear also stars the sexy scream queen, Ashley Laurence of Hellraiser fame in a very typical final girl type of lead.

I’d say buy this Blu-Ray directly from Full Moon or on Amazon and definitely view the film yourself for the Halloween season.
Lurking Fear is a great trip down memory lane and just a decent creature feature overall!
