The Chronicles of Horror Movie Night: ‘The Runestone’ (1991)


Posted by:

After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!

I knew next to nothing about this week’s Horror Movie Night pick when we sat down and pressed play. With a name like The Runestone I expected it to be stemming from the fantasy world in some form or fashion. Whenever I think of runes I think of people either playing Dungeons & Dragons or a Renaissance Faire – or both. Not really my cup of tea, but still I was to be trapped for the next 100 or so minutes. Luckily it isn’t too medieval for my tastes and there is a pretty bad ass monster. Sadly it is rather mediocre and drags on a bit too long.
