A successful mix of the writer's work, 18 May 2015
Author: siderite from Romania

It is difficult to translate Lovecraft to film, both because of the fake introspection motif of a character who is by most standards completely obsolete and because H.P. rarely wrote books, instead being content with writing short stories.

That is why this format, by no means original, works very well with "the master"'s writing. It combines several ideas from various stories and creates a movie that doesn't cover any of them, but manages to capture the feel of Lovecraft's writing.

It is not a masterpiece, but as Lovecraft films go, it is one of the best, probably because Christopher Heyerdahl really manages to channel Lovecraft very well.
