View Full Version : Dagon on SCIFI
02-28-2003, 05:10 AM
looks like the SCIFI channel will be airing DAGON on saturday at 9pm (i'm pretty sure that's what the commercial said). i imagine the movie will be edited, but it'll be a great way to check out this movie for those who have not seen it (myself included). i've heard a lot of good stuff about the movie, hopefully it'll deliver. :D

Dagon is a good movie.
I wonder if they will insert any new footage to make up for the stuff that they are likely to cut out?
We shall see.

They'll have to cut out alot... ALOT! Dude, just buy the thing, its great!

You beat me to the post. Man, they are going to shred the film!!
SCI-FI shreds everything they get their hands on...why even ruin our Friday buzz by mentioning them here? I've rented DAGON thru Netflix and can't wait to see it in its entirety...

Is there really that much that needs to be cut to show on TV? I'm begnning to wonder if I got a cut DVD because all I remember is one gory scene (face)? I actually thought this movie was gonna be a gore fest , It was still great but not on the gore level.

There are several nude scenes that are sure to be cut. Curses, of course. And yes, one gore scene in particular. Besides that, I'm not sure what else would be cut.
Showing it on Sci-Fi will definitely save some of you on rental money. You'll still get the gist of the movie (the extended chase scene should be intact, although marred by commercial breaks), enough to know that you'll want to buy the movie ASAP.
I was pissed I rented it, 'cause the $2.50 I spent on rental should have just been put towards the inevitable purchase.

Dagon definetly has a great atmosphere and had great sound effects too.

I scored a copy of this at my local Wherehouse (since its closing down) for $10 and it was a great buy. This flick fucking rules. It was all that I imagined it would be and then some. Gordon really is the man when it comes to Lovecraft horror. I'm going to watch it again today. Too bad the disc didnt have more special features, but its one of the gems in my collection.

Yup,after watching it again I've finally decided to go buy it.Too bad a few months ago I couldve gotten it for 9.99 and now it's 22.99.awell

So did anyone bother to watch it?
Did they insert new footage to replace the stuff that they cut out?

I didn't see it on Sci Fi but I highly recommend people pick up the dvd. It rocks. You can probably find it used for cheap at alot of places.

You're right, there wasn't that much gore in the movie -- other than the face scene. Hell, there was more nudity than gore, IMHO. I'm not sure what mcchrist and Shannafey are talking about.
Gordon really is the man when it comes to Lovecraft horror.
I was actually disappointed with the film, myself. I haven't seen a film yet that really captures the dread and atmosphere of Lovecraft's work. Gordon's flicks don't really impress me any more than (or at least disappoint me any less than) other Lovecraft adaptations, such as Joyner's The Lurking Fear or Ouellette's The Unnamable. The sad part about Dagon is that Gordon almost got there... It had the potential to be great, but never quite realized that potential.

How can Gordon make a real Lovecraft flick without Jeffrey Combs in it, anyway!?!
