When Phil is reading the framed article about his and Harry's arrest, there are spelling and writing errors in the print. "Ceaslessly" is used instead of "ceaselessly". And "sighted" is used instead of "cited". See more »
Magic. Gives me the shakes what you can buy in this town.
Well, they said it'd make things easier.
And it has.

This movie was excellent! The combination of old gangster, comedy, and horror was a great idea. The acting was excellent (Fred Ward rocks, as usual), and for an 80s film, it was really good (I'm not a big fan of the mall hair, brat pack, and Modonna crap that was hashed out in the big 80s).
This film, quite the opposite was very entertaining and an absolute MUST HAVE for HPL fans.
The entire movie was Lovecraft inspired and not a murder of his writings, like most of them are.
Most definitely, check it out. You won't regret it. it's a great tongue-in-cheeck, campy horror schlock that is actually well done.
If you like it, there's a sequel called "With Hunt" with Dennis Hopper as the lead. Not as good, but still entertaining.
This film rates 7 tentacles and a star shaped protrusion all the way up, on the elder god-o-meter
