Faithful
3 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

Easily the most faithful adaptation of a Lovecraft story ever put to film. Tillman is a triple-threat as writer-director-actor, and it's clear he's a real fan of Lovecraft's work - the movie is obviously a labor of love. Die-hard fans have been waiting for an adaptation like this.
