Quite possibly the best Lovecraft adaptation ever made.
This short film captures the mood and conflicted emotions of Lovecraft's original story perfectly. Writer/director Bryan Moore has great potential and an ear for dialogue. He creates a number of sympathetic characters in a very short period and thereby out does Lovecraft's original story. It is a shame this film has received so little public attention, it deserves better. I highly recommend it not simply to those fans of Lovecraft who yearn for a good adaptation to finally be made, but to anyone with an appreciation of mood and character.
