Storyline

Charles Dexter Ward's wife enlists the help of a private detective to find out what her husband is up to in a remote cabin owned by his family for centuries. The husband is a chemical engineer, and the smells from his experiments (and the delivery of what appear to be human remains at all hours) are beginning to arouse the attention of neighbors and local law enforcement officials. When the detective and wife find a diary of the husband's ancestor from 1771, and reports of gruesome murders in the area begin to surface, they begin to suspect that some very unnatural experiments are being conducted in the old house. Based on an H.P. Lovecraft story. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

When Claire Ward first visits John March, she sits in his office, and we can see Holly the receptionist's desk behind Claire through the glass wall. The first time we see this shot, there is someone who is not Holly behind the desk. The next time we see the shot, Holly is at her desk, but talking to someone, although as far as we know, no one else is there. See more »

HP Lovecraft done right
25 December 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I remember reading the short story this film is based on (and others by the same author) in my late teens and I must say this is one of the better adaptations. A hard to come by gem. [9/10] ... The Re-Animator, Dagon and The Evil Dead trilogy are all great films, but their interpretation of Lovecraft prioritizes gore and/or slapstick over suspense. Why is that? The moment Peter Hyams started to show off Satan

  • The Lord of Lies, bless him - as a brainless CG-bat in 1999's End of
Days, that movie literally imploded and changed from a mildly entertaining Schwarzenegger vehicle into a complete... "Emmerich's Godzilla vs The Exorcist II"...
