I am by no means an expert at the horror genre, unlike many of my fellow reviewers. DAGON starts with the usual elements of a "couple in danger" horror film in which several outsiders go into unknown territory and get picked off by the locals. It is important that the outsiders are daft as a brush and include some screamers. In this case the "hero" is an excellent example of the American abroad; unable to speak the language, given to making threats and complaints despite it being obvious to us that he's on a hiding to nothing. We have been enjoying these lambs to the slaughter since Brad and Janet first met Rocky Horror. In this case the horror is very credibly sketched in true Lovecraftian style; the end being especially creepy (and yes there had been a clue if I had but thought on it). The sets were marvellously damp, the piscine deformities well sketched and the air of constant flight well handled. The CGI might not have been totally successful with everyone but it was not bad either.
