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.

Critic Reviews for The Runestone

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

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

Top Critic

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

TV Guide

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