Trivia

The first news clippings handled by Russell (Beloved garbageman ...) features HP Lovecraft biographical details (interest in literature) as well as a reference to the Necronomicon and Abdul Al Azred, while the second (Children ...) is an actual short biography of Lovecraft and quotes HPL's name. Both articles have a title which does not relate to the text. See more »

Crazy Credits

The end credits say "The Automobile Associaton of America (AAA) is Congress' and the states' largest and most powerful organization lobbying for roads and sprawl and against environmental protection, mass transit and auto safety. If you are a member of AAA they are using your money to pursue this agenda. The Better World Club provides roadside service, towing and insurance at rates which match Triple A's. They did not pay us to say so. www.betterworldclub.com See more »

The Thing That Should Not Be
15 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a terrible adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow Over Innsmouth." The acting was weak, the direction was weak, and the original content has been butchered. I saw this movie at the Seattle International Film Festival, and that was the worst mistake I made all weekend. If you want to see a film based on "Shadow Over Innsmouth," Stuart Gordon's "Dagon" is mediocre, but it's certainly better than this botched attempt. If you want to see "Call of Cthulhu," the silent film adaptation is great. But this? This film is a waste of time. I suspect the people who are writing 10 out of 10 scores are either friends of the director or shills who worked on the film. There is no earthly way this film is a 10. It stinks like a rotten pile of fish.
