The tomb of terror is a new column. It will replace my previous teeny tiny Tweet-Size Horror reviews with a more in-depth discussion of a horror film each week.
Every Saturday night The Tomb of Terror opens, unleashing reviews of the obscure and the classic in horror cinema.
Sometimes a film comes along that wouldn’t have been able to exist without the success of another. After watching The Sentinel (1977), I’m convinced that the movie would not exist had The Exorcist not been a hit three years before. There are certain aspects of the film that seem carbon copied from that classic tale of demonic possession. The film is based on a novel by Jeffrey Konvitz that was released in 1974, the same year as The Exorcist hit theaters. Was the inspiration for writing it the box office figures of William Friedkin’s film? No one but Konvitz can know for sure. I am fairly certain, however, that the movie exists because of that film’s success, as well as the success of another hellspawn, The Omen (1976).
