Re: What are your favorite H.P. Lovecraft adaptations?

Well, this is the thread that keeps on giving. I had no idea who Maurice Sandoz was until now. Thanks; I will check out that movie.

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

"Dark Waters" gets a lot of love from me... ol VHS cassette (ordered over a pretty minimal , at that time, internet) need to get a more digitized version sometime for my next fish dinner.

Who of these mortal hearts can grasp the joke?
The charms of horror only suit the strong!"

Re: What are your favorite H.P. Lovecraft adaptations?

I got it on DVD last year. It's not bad, kinda like one of the last gasps of the Italian horror film style. The documentary on the DVD is really interesting, especially about shooting in Ukraine.

Re: What are your favorite H.P. Lovecraft adaptations?

I recently found a poster for a movie called Spring online. The movie is directed by Aaron Scott Moorhead and Justin Benson and was released in 2014. The poster's blurb is taken from rogerebert.com and says: "Phenomenal. A hybrid of Richard Linklater and H.P. Lovecraft."

Has anyone seen it? And if so, is it any good? There are no reviews on the film's IMDb profile.

Re: What are your favorite H.P. Lovecraft adaptations?

As I said in another thread, this is a 2014 Spanish film called La Isla Mínima, released as Marshland in English. Apparently, one of the influences on the movie was H.P. Lovecraft and it was compared to True Detective, but it does not include weird fiction elements.

It was directed by Alberto Rodríguez, who cowrote the screenplay with Rafael Cobos.

I watched this like two days ago, really good film. 80's Spain oppressive atmosphere, actors/characters and those marshlands are just perfect. Really excellent thriller.

Not very faithful, but pretty good films. Well, maybe not the second one:
