Jeffrey Combs was hesitant about portraying Lovecraft on film. "I don't look like Lovecraft." but makeup made him look like Lovecraft as best as they could. He also wasn't particularly fond of the direction they went with his rendition. There are shots where the makeup worn be Combs greatly resembles the ledgendary Bruce Campbell, right down to the scar on his chin. See more »

This movie was okay, considering Lovecraft's ideas are hard to portray on the screen. Each story stayed true to Lovecraft's horror, though the last was leaning towards the modern version of horror (gory, bloody, etc) The acting was much better than I expected, especially the last story. The sequences with Lovecraft are taking many licenses with his real self, but then again, his real personality doesn't need to be shown to enjoy his stories. I enjoyed the low budget, yet quality, effects as well.
(for the MSTies, watch for the Necronomicon door sequence near the end, amusingly similar)
