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."

fantastic realization of a master's vision
2 June 2004 | by (brampton canada) – See all my reviews

As a fan of HP Lovecraft, I have read quite a few of his stories and although there is a common thread throughout most of them, sometimes it was hard to visualize the creatures he described. This movie however brings together more than a few scenes from his tales blending in the fantasy-horror with believable reality. This is exceptionally well done with profound subtlety, because most horror films become overblown comic ventures. This film is not really scary or horrifying itself, but is rather a fantastic realization of a masters vision. Truly, the folks that brought us this film should be given the opportunity to fully address a wider audience with a larger production.
