Rebecca Balding, Matt Houston, James Conway discussed on The Moratorium
Shut down because of mysterious people gone missing missing miners and think that says something like twenty one miners trapped in the mine which they never recovered a nice little setup to get you going into the creepy nece. I love this movie a lot because it has kind of a good sweet old school point of view camera stuff for the monster. They only had one monster four this movie and they put it to good use. It was cool. Now was the monster. That creepy can resembled a turtle. I watched them behind the scenes stuff. And and actually the shell of the turtle was kind of like look like a sheep's brain but it had tentacles like a squid or an octopus and we see a brief moments in this movie with just the tentacles and that just what kind of sets it off. Really well i really dig this movie the kills or fun it Sneaks up on you. Now these These minds supposedly have tunnels that go to the different houses in the area. Most of these houses seem to be vacant around this area. It could have built on that a little bit more but this is a small production a small movie. This was directed by james conway. James conway has twenty five producers credits and forty five directing credits He started off way early in the seventies. He did several episodes of the life. Time of grizzly adams but also came around in nineteen eighty to do hangar eighteen. Movie that we will probably end up covering in-depth on the moratorium at some time.
