I really feel sorry for actor Tony Todd sometimes. The guy is quite a presence on the big screen – specifically in the “Candyman” series, in which he plays the nightmare inducing title character – but filmmakers don’t seem to know what to do with him outside of that franchise.

I really feel sorry for actor Tony Todd sometimes. The guy is quite a presence on the big screen – specifically in the “Candyman” series, in which he plays the nightmare inducing title character – but filmmakers don’t seem to know what to do with him outside of that franchise.
Latest case in point: “Minotaur”, a B-horror grade horror film – made for television, by the looks – in which the towering thespian plays third fiddle to a bunch of no-names and a sock on a string. Influenced by the likes of “Jeepers Creepers” (a much better film, mind you), it tells of a murderous fiend that must feed on eight youngsters every five years. Basically, the town give up five youths every year to the beast – seeing the ‘Minotaur’ as not such a monster, but a god. When the lover of one of the victim’s is sacrificed to the thing, the hero sets off to the monster’s lair, where he plans to stake the beast for good.
Granted, this ain’t a bad film, in fact some of it is actually quite inspired – I’d like to see what director Jon English (no, not that Jon English!) could do when he’s got a budget to work with – but it unfortunately is just ‘too much of the same’. Extras include Audio commentary with director Jonathan English and editor Eddie Hamilton, deleted scenes and a montage of the visual effects.
