Synopsis: Based on a short story by H.P. Lovecraft, the undisputed master of the macabre, Dagon tells the story of Paul Marsh, a young man who discovers that the truth will not set him free instead it condemns him to a waking nightmare of unrelenting horror. A boating accident off the coast of Spain 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. Paul finds himself pursued by the entire town. Running for his life, he uncovers Imboca's dark secret: that they pray to Dagon, a monstrous god of the sea. And Dagon's unholy offspring are freakish half-human creatures on the loose in Imboca...

what's the matter?


It's my stomach.

I hope it's not an ulcer.

You're sweating.

Another nightmare?


the same one.


Is something wrong?

No, I've been feeling strange

for the last couple of days.

You've got to relax.

Come on,

this is what

you worked so hard for.

You got Howard to invest.

I know,

but you're the genius.

Everything you touch...

turns to gold.

What made you say that?

Come on,

you really don't know

how to have fun, do you?

Don't you feel like

everything's changed all at once?

Of course, it's changed.

We're f***ing rich!

Could we just enjoy it?

Come on.


I don't find

any of this enjoyable.



Barbara, not that.

That was great

what you were doing there.

- It's not that.

- Okay.

- I didn't mean that.

- Don't do this, okay?



So now you have to smoke?

It's Howard's boat.

He doesn't mind.

"It's Howard's boat.

He doesn't mind."


Wait. Paul.

Can't you leave that thing

alone for five minutes?


Our stocks could be going underwater,

and we wouldn't know it.

I'm not worried about that.

There are two possibilities. The share

price stabilizes, and we're fine.

Or it keeps going down,

and there are two possibilities.

We are in a boat

off the coast of Espana. Please.


Mother country, right?

My mother wouldn't let me

learn Spanish.

Ran away to the States

first chance she got.

Well, now you're here.

- Full circle.

- Uh-huh.

It's destiny.

You can't program life.

Why not?

- It's a binary system.

- Aw...

Come on. Man, woman...

rich, poor...

- life, death...

- Paul?

I like that.

- Grow up, okay?

- What are you doing?

- Nothing.

I'm just going on vacation.



be careful

with the company files.

Vicki, sorry.


Now the stock is underwater.

What did you do?!

Have you gone nuts?

- You're f***ing crazy?

- Wake up, Paul!

Look around! It's beautiful.

- There will be a beautiful sunset.

- There will be a beautiful sunset.

That's great!

That makes everything all right.

There's only one thing.

Now I only have those files on disk.

I'm not backed up,

all right?

You're so backed up that's your ass

coming over the horizon.

Would you mind moving?

There's only a little sun left

and you're standing in it.

Remember when we used

to fight like that, darling?

Except I would have

thrown you overboard.

Would have been cheaper.


do you hear that?

It's coming from that village.

Probably some sort

of religious festival.

That's all we need.

Singing nuns.

I'm going to freshen up.

Excuse me.

Excuse me.

I don't like the look of those.


I'd say

we've got a storm coming.

All right, let's move

everything below deck...

or tie it down.

That thing's

coming right at us.

I'll take us

away from the reef.

- Up anchor.

- Yeah, sure.

- Where is it?

- I've got it.

- You're not looking too well.

- I'll be okay.

Aw, sh*t!

- Hey, look out!

- Brace yourselves!



- Are you guys all right?

- Yeah.

- I think so.

- You sure?

- Yeah.

- Yeah.


Okay, baby.

Paul, give me a hand here.

It's okay, Vicki.

I'll radio for help.

- Can you move your leg at all?

- No, I can't.

- I can't.

- The radio's out.

And the computer--

Okay. Take this and

go signal to the shore.

- Hurry!

- What?

Don't worry,

we'll get you out of here.

All right, okay.

Come on!

Where the hell is everybody?

Damn it!

We'll have to take the raft
