Movie Info

Alan Rudolph wrote and directed this typically off-beat drama. A brief romantic liaison between a wealthy European and an American ballet dancer results in a pair of identical twins, who are separated and raised by others shortly after birth. Henry (Matthew Modine) was adopted by Pete (M. Emmet Walsh), an auto mechanic, and Henry grows up to follow in his Pete's footsteps. Emotionally fragile, Henry is in a relationship with Beverly (Lara Flynn Boyle), a rich but painfully shy woman who is

Though socially-minded in its concern for the moral decay of urban society, Equinox suffers from the usual Rudolph problems, low-key tone and incoherent text, made worse by Matthew Modine flat performance in a dual role.

Typically twisted Rudolph, with a great cast

Should not only satisfy Ruddolph fans, but garner him some new ones.

Audience Reviews for Equinox

I have a great history with this film. I remember it played one weekend afternoon when I was a kid and on Monday my friends and I couldn't stop talking about it. It had all these monsters and fantastic effects and managed to be fun and scare the crap out of us at the same time.
Then came the day that I heard it influenced my favourite film, The Evil Dead. I thought it might have been that film with all the stop motion effects I remembered so fondly from my youth, but I think that had been called Equinox, not The Beast. Well, it was Equinox and I watched it again, both with nostalgia, and since I had forgotten so much of it (except the ending which had haunted me and my friends so much as kids) it was like seeing it for the first time again.
And then, as a full grown adult, the craziest thing of all happened, effin' Criterion released a double disc version of it! Criterion! If ever a movie deserved a double disc edition, sure I would say this one, but most people would (and did) scoff at the idea of this getting the deluxe treatment. Well, despite their whining, God must love me a whole bunch for this DVD. Now when I have kids I can't wait for them to feel the joy and scares of this wonderful little film (though I may skip ahead the sheriff molestation scene though I love that close up). Also, this is an odd instance I like the producers cut better than the filmmakers cut, but that's understandable since it was made by a bunch of kids. Highly recommended.
