The makeshift dummy (fondly nick-named "Gary Oldman" for his unwavering commitment to his role) was constructed primarily out of a department store bouncy ball, a basket ball, a couple of water noodles, some juggling balls (for joints) and a lot of duct tape. While the dummy was being thrown over the lookout railing of the Walhalla temple in Germany, a group of Austrian tourists were watching off camera and shouting encouragement as attempt after attempt was made to hurl poor Gary over the edge without "hurler" Elias' arms being caught on camera. Ultimately his arms could still be seen in the footage, so they were removed digitally in post. Gary the Dummy eventually immigrated to the United States in a cardboard box and now resides safely in Elias' closet. See more »

If you love independent cinema, or H. P. Lovecraft, definitely check this movie out. It shows that you don't need to be associated to with a huge studio to make a witty, well made film.
Elias as the hapless journalist leads us through a compilation of shorts which embody the spirit of Lovecraft, but at the same to are quite humorous. And what other movie can boast having aliens, zombies, and snowmen?
The only thing I would say is if you haven't read Lovecraft, I think some of the references and jokes which I enjoyed may be lost on you, but nonetheless I would still say to check it out!
