The Sentinel

Shiftless, budget-minded direction and a thin scenario sabotage the eerie effect. The saving grace is its considerable camp value provided by the large cast of notables. A cast list that Irwin Allen could have made a great disaster movie with. In fact, if Irwin Allen had directed this, I think it would have been great in a very particular and awful way. The cast is almost equal parts former stars and future stars with no stars in between: Chris Sarandon, Martin Balsam, John Carradine, José Ferrer, Ava Gardner, Arthur Kennedy, Burgess Meredith, Eli Wallach, Christopher Walken, Jerry Orbach, Beverly D'Angelo, Nana Visitor, Tom Berenger, William Hickey, Jeff Goldblum.
