Wyrd War invites YOU to experience EQUINOX (1970)...on the vernal equinox! Long before THE EVIL DEAD and THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, there was nine-time Oscar Award-winning special FX wizard Dennis Muren’s mind-melting mother of all “cabin in the woods” monsterpieces! Four teenagers go to a cabin in the woods for some wholesome recreation and, surprisingly, things do not go well. They meet Asmodeus, find a mysterious castle on a hill, and open an occult tome that summons some very pissed off and ingeniously imagined creatures from another dimension. Cobbled together from Muren’s experimental 1967 Super 8mm student film and starring a very young Frank Bonner (Herb of WKRP in Cincinnati fame), EQUINOX is an incredibly fun tour de force of Ray Harryhausen inspired stop-motion effects and a beautiful reminder of the uncomplicated cinema magic that can be invoked with a little ingenuity and a lot of imagination.
