Storyline

Little did Elliot know what lay in store when he called upon his distraught friend, Thurber, in this faithful adaptation of the Lovecraft classic. Thurber relates with horror the tale of the disappearance of Richard Upton Pickman, a prominent, though despised, local artist with a taste for the...unusual. Thurber's admiration drew him into the haunting world and work of Richard Pickman...until that fateful journey to his decrepit studio...and the unspeakable nightmare he found lurking in the cellar. Written by Rick Tillman

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.
