Summary
The story is simple: a quartet of college kids head out to a cabin in the woods and stumble across a dusty old manuscript that conjures demons. "Equinox" is noteworthy as a missing link of sorts between the fantastic cinema of "Jason and the Argonauts" and "Star Wars," marking the transition from artisans like Harryhausen to a new breed of special effects artist. Made by in 1967 for a mere $6,500 by future Industrial Light and Magic supervisor Dennis Muren and friends, it was distributed by Jack H. Harris (The Blob), after Harris had writer/director Jack Woods do some reshooting to give it a professional sheen. Released theatrically in 1970, the film gained a passionate cult following, inspiring succeeding generations of horror/fantasy filmmakers
