Genre: Horror
Contains: Graphic Violence

THE PLOT:

This legend of the golem legend is set in 16th century Prague, the era in which Rabbi Loew has created the giant golem from clay in order to save the Jews from persecution by the despot Rudolf II. Loew's assistant, Famulus, has different plans, however, as he takes control of the golem and orders it to perform criminal acts, among which is the kidnapping of Miriam, the Rabbi's daughter. Rebelling against the sordid tasks set for him, the golem goes on a murderous rampage!

THE OPINION:

I must admit I was a little disappoint, I was hoping for a full costume for the Golem, not make up. However it is convincing make up, the acting was great and it kept you interested despite the fact it had no vocal.

I GIVE IT...9 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+HITS):

+STORY (The story worked it kept going at a good pace)
+MAKE UP EFFECTS (convincing make up effects)
+DIRECTOR (The Director also played the monster, I admire that)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (-MISSES):

-NO MASK (I was hoping for a full monster costume)

AND FINALLY:

-BAD RE-MASTERING (They re-mastered this cheaply and allot of the scenes are green, yellow and orange)
