Re: Cthulhu silent film?

No, but I've been waiting for the producers to release it for a a few months now. Is there any way to get it for free? :P
:twisted:

According to what I've seen in the trailer, this looks like a successful experimental film. We'll see...

Re: Cthulhu silent film?

I saw this an hour ago and I think it was very entertaining! So far, I believe this is the best and the most faithful Lovecraft adaptation (although I haven't seen all of them - who has, anyway?).

I really think that Expressionism + Lovecraft = success. I hope we will see more of such projects in the near future.

Re: Cthulhu silent film?

Just saw this myself last night. It's brilliant! Truly the first worthy cinematic interpretation of a Lovecraft story. The $20 I dropped to buy the DVD was money well spent.

I can definitely recommend this one to any Lovecraftians that haven't seen it yet. The set for R'yleh may be made out of cardboard, but it's still as non-euclidean as your nightmares...
