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.
