“High school teenagers accidentally unleash an ancient Irish entity on their hometown and must stop it before midnight on Halloween.”
The premise for Curse of Crom: The Legend of Halloween is a simple one but all in all this film was quite entertaining and put together nicely. There was a lot of decent practical effects, and although this was low budget everything was filmed well and this didn’t come off as something that was put together with a shoestring.
There was a fair amount of humor here too. Unlike a lot of horror films there wasn’t a ton of swearing, nudity or gore…so I can go out on a limb and say that this one would be good to introduce younger viewers to horror. It has a rating of 14A but even that seems a tad excessive…and I’d say viewers even younger would be able to watch this. This wasn’t the best horror flick I have ever watched. But it was far from the worst…and I would encourage just about anyone to give it a go!
