Paul (Ezra Godden) and his girlfriend Barbara (Raquel Rabal) are on a boating holiday off the coast of Spain. Following an accident they pitch up at the small village of Imboca to seek assistance. But there is something strange about the people of the town and, as night falls, Paul finds himself the target of occult worshippers. Will Imboca's darker secret envelope both Paul and Barbara or can they find a way to evade the ancient god of the sea, Dagon?
With Dagon, director Stuart (Re-Animator) Gordon returns once more to author HP Lovecraft, this time for an adaptation of the novella The Shadow Over Innsmouth, with the setting switched from the coast of New England to the creepy Spanish fishing village of Inboca. After a sudden storm and a yacht-wreck, a bespectacled and bewildered Paul Marsh (Ezra Gooden) finds himself stranded in the literally fishy town, which has thrown over Catholicism to devote itself to the worship of the Philistine sea-god Dagon. His influence means that the inhabitants are transforming into pop-eyed, tentacled and gilled creatures.
Though Gooden perhaps strikes too strident a note to convince as an everyday guy, director Gordon orchestrates the rising terrors well. These range from a supremely damp and uncomfortable hotel room through an impressive flashback about the rise of the Esoteric Order of Dagon to some sinister business with a mad-eyed mermaid (Macarena Gomez), human sacrifice and nasty surprises all round. Unfortunately, Gordon still can't quite distinguish between acceptably gruesome and downright nasty, especially when it comes to disposing of secondary female characters. On the plus side, Dagon boasts an excellent score, which even tries to set to music some of Lovecraft's invented language ("Ia Ia Cthulhu fh'tagn"). --Kim Newman

The UK DVD lacks the audio commentaries, storyboards and production sketches on the US DVD but does include a featurette not on that disc as well as the trailer.
This film, contrary to its title, is not a cinematic rendering of Lovecraft's short story, Dagon. It is a loose, though atmospherically faithful, adaptation of a longer work, The Shadow over Innsmouth which originally had far more bus journey in it and far less Cape Fear, which to my mind is a very obvious influence in the film. Filming The Shadow over Innsmouth straight may well have turned out as a sort of Midnight Cowboy with tentacles, which would not have had the same impact as the atmosphere-building boat trip introduction that this finely creepy film finally went with, solving THE major problem quite elegantly.
THE major problem is that Lovecraft does not adapt easily to a visual format. His work largely relies on variations of the terrified narrator device, and in his books it is very rare to glimpse outright any of the horror that is so horrible that it invariably sends he who glimpses it directly - I.e. the narrator, usually, or someone leaving the narrator a letter - stark raving mad. Here we run straight into the Film Censorship Board Paradox - Its impossuble to depict something that WILL deprave, corrupt or drive the beholder insane by explicitly showing a film audience That Which Mortal Man May Not Gaze Upon.Read more ›
