Storyline

"Three times Randolph Carter dreamed of the marvelous city, and three times was he snatched away while still he paused on the high terrace above it." Thus begins H. P. Lovecraft's epic tale of the courageous dreamer Randolph Carter and his search for the mystical sunset city by petitioning the gods of Kadath. During his journey, he travels deep into the world of dream, to the edge of the world, to the moon and back, and to the heights and depths of human and... inhuman experience. Written by Edward Martin III

Excellent adaptation.
9 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not a perfect adaptation, but it's very close. It is obvious that this film did not have a budget of millions of dollars. However, that is not the main point. Like the HP Lovecraft Historical Society's black and white silent version of "The Call of Cthulhu", it is obvious that this film is also a labor of love. Both films follow the original story and do it well. If you are a true child of technology, you will probably not like this film. If you are more concerned with story, though, then you will love this. This film has more heart than any 50 multimillion dollar productions from Hollywood. A few things that make it less that 10/10 are the fact that the music occasionally is so loud that you can't hear the dialog, the animation is occasionally so poor that it pulls you out of the story, and a couple of the actors read their lines so woodenly that it pulls you out. For what this is, though, these are minor hassles. The music, even when it's too loud, is really quite good, too.
