Atmospheric and haunting
26 August 2002 | by (Portland, Maine) – See all my reviews

A treat for Lovecraft fans everywhere. Evocative of that strange world in-between the by-gone reality and the ever-present horror that HPL characters live in, this film features an earnest voice-over by director and main character Matzke that paces the piece. Nicely short, just enough for a taste of the lurking evil. At times quite tongue-in-cheek, Matzke cannot be said to take himself too seriously, a welcome relief from many of the HPL-related short films made in the last ten years or so. Keep your eyes peeled for a surreal moment or two, reminiscent of the scenes of a hedgehog family walking across screen in the midst of the classic Universal Studios version of Dracula. Recommended!
