Dagon - Face Rip

Dagon is a actually not bad for a B movie, it has some interesting elements. H.P. Lovecraft is a very difficult author to translate to the big screen, but Stuart Gordon does a pretty good job. It doesn't have the humor of Re-animator, Stuart Gordon's masterpiece, but there's actually a lot gore for a Lovecraft story.. The acting isn't too great and the effects aren't the best, but the film present itself as a homage to the B-Movie genre.
Dagon tells the story of a boating accident off the coast of Spain that sends Paul and his girlfriend Barbara to the decrepit fishing village of Imboca looking for help. As night falls, people start to disappear and things not quite human start to appear. In this scene Ezequiel, played by the late Francisco Rabal, becomes another victim of those bloody half-fish Gallegos.
