Miskatonic University (2014), Nyarlathotep (2001)

A couple more Lovecraftian films (or should I say 'Lovecraftian'?). Neither seems to have been mentioned here. The first, Miskatonic University is made with some style and ability. There are also some pleasantly disquieting elements.



(2014)

I can't find the DVD online, but the entire film (36 minutes) is available here: http://xmovies8.tv/movie/miskatonic-university-2014/

I don't know how long that link will work as the xmovies8.tv site was taken down a month or two back and has only reappeared recently (its sister site xmovies8.org is still up). While the legal issues are problematic - well not really problematic, just illegal - despite that, I wouldn't have known many of these indie movies existed without these two sites.

I found the second film Nyarlathotep (2001) disappointing. Though it's not as embarrassingly bad as Terminator Genisys!


While putting this post together I ran into problems (I always have problems posting YouTube links here - first they work, then they don't). But after following Google Chrome's advice to switch to incognito mode - suddenly the original Spanish/Brazilian film vanished from search results... and up came another version of Nyarlathotep. Rather a better one.


It looks suspiciously like another of those Lovecraft Society films (I bought the first one). Don't know if this post will work.

N.B. There's also a trailer for the anticipated The Shadow Over Innsmouth (mentioned in another post above) on YT now. (My error - it's a complete animated film in three parts from 2010, so probably linked here already.)
