Boring
29 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

This doco pretty well covers what you'd expect it to, the problem being that it does so in such an uninteresting fashion. It covers the Lovecraft basics, and delves momentarily into waters uncharted by other Lovecraft documentaries. It would be interesting to newcomers if the production values weren't so abysmally poor. If not for the top of the line authors and literary scholars being interviewed you'd think this was a high school project. Take my advice and see "Lovecraft: Fear Of The Unknown" instead. It doesn't cover too much new ground, but its overall quality is far superior, and it is never boring. Eldritch Influence is for the hardcore fans only.
