The "Elder Gods" have been spending the last several millenia in some other dimension - until they returned to earth in the 1920s. But humankind was prepared, and quickly the military with the help of some occultists established the top secret army base Artemis Black Site from where the Elder Gods were to be banished to hell. And with quite some success, too, as by 1997, there are hardly any Elder Gods left on earth and the facility's already pretty run down. In fact, the only recently apprehended Erebus (Kris Johnson) might be one of the last Elder Gods left, and he's to be deported today. There's a bit of a problem though with that, as Erebus, 20 years back, killed one of the top soldiers of Artemis, Rob Reid (Henry Douthwaite), after Reid deported Erebus' wife, and presently Reid's daughter Ren (Samantha Schnitzler) is a minor officer at Artemis - and it's seen as imperative that those two don't cross paths. But what nobody has expected, Erebus has a legion of followers led by ruthless swordswoman Ker (Phoebe Robinson-Galvin) who wouls do anything to free their God - and they slaughter their way through most of Artemis' personnel to get to him. But Ren might only be a minor officer, but she's an excellent fighter, and she's hell-bent to get the "deporter" Sam (Mike Beckingham) to Erebus before those who want to free him. But once she and Erebus come face to face, it's revealed that not all things may be what they seem, and Erebus isn't as much the bad guy as she has perceived him to be - in fact he has called her to him for reasons nobody would have ever suspected ...

 

Now this sure is a fun genre bender: H.P. Lovecraft style horrors in a sci-fi setting carried by a solid, 80s style action spectacle. And it works, too, as beyond all the fireworks, Black Site has an actual story to tell, manages to catch one by surprise every time one's sure where all this is heading, and it's populated by interesting characters with actual character arcs. On top of that, the thing oozes with atmosphere, and the likeably old-fashioned B-movie approach to things is just charming. Well worth your time for sure!
