Storyline

Out of Mind casts an entertaining eye on the work of American writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), one of the early 20th century's masters of gothic-horror literature. The film offers an encounter with Lovecraft and enters into his world. Engaging in a kind of game around the writer, the film playfully winks at some of the themes characteristic of his work: the occult, cursed books, monstrous creatures. Out of Mind draws its inspiration from Lovecraft's personal correspondence and many of his stories, carrying the viewer through a labyrinth "beyond the wall of sleep."

Serious, Mysterious and Fun!
13 September 2006 | by (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm a Lovecraft fan for a couple of years now, reading the most of his books and stories, and viewing several films based on them. This one is by far the most satisfying. The film leans heavy on the acting instead of monsters or great filmsets. They only use one monster which is the worst scene of the film since it looked like a bad operated rubber doll. They could've easily cut that out or better: make a suggestion of the monster instead of showing it. Other than that, it's a thrill to see this film because the acting is really good. Heyerdahl is spectacular as H.P. Lovecraft himself. The rest of the cast is also very convincing except maybe for the character of Warren who was making it more of a stage play. The storyline is actually a combination of a couple of stories from Lovecraft, and it really works very well within this film. Sometimes i caught myself smiling just because it was so much fun to see all those stories touched with such integrity. If you like mystery and fantasy: try to get a hold of the DVD.
