The Runestone (1991)

My Rating

Movie Info

When an archaeologist uncovers an ancient Norse power stone, he returns with it to his New York City home. Too bad for the relic-digger, because it's not long before an evil spirit is projected from the stone into the archaeologist, turning him into a hairy beast. And too bad for the people of NYC, because this hairy beast goes on a vicious marauding spree that befuddles the local police. ~ Rovi

For all its pretensions, "The Runestone" is just another routine horror picture featuring a big hairy monster on the loose.

Quite a pleasant surprise, a deft and intriguing low-budget horror item that deserved much better handling than it received.

This is not a great film, but it is certainly a fun film. Great for a Friday night watch after a hard week.
