A fine adaptation!
27 October 2003 | by (Tigard, OR) – See all my reviews

"An Imperfect Solution" (Oh, what an awful pun!) is a fine adaptation of Lovecraft's Herbert West stories. Although much good can be said of Stuart Gordon's adaptations, the fact is, they've dominated the field as far as adapting any of these oddball stories. Matzke's adapted one in a faithful, period piece, with an obvious eye toward a love for the genre, the material, and the historical flavor of the original work. There is a quiet horror in this movie, a sense of the surreal and the terrifying.
