I was delighted by this film because of my long-time fanaticism concerning the literature of Howard Phillips Lovecraft. Hollywood has long used his titles without capturing the elements that make his fiction enduring and memorable. This story is an adaptation of The Lurking Fear. The previous adaptation was cleared to use the title but did a poor job, I thought. This film has the right locale, camerawork, moody music (as in Twin Peaks), and even has two Canadian actors who handle the roles as well as Johnny Depp and Uma Thurmin, whom they resemble. A great job.
