Storyline

Walter Gilman, a college student, rents out a very cheap room in an old house, but it proves to be no bargain. One of his neighbors prays loudly and bangs on the furniture. Another neighbor, a single mother, issues a blood-curdling scream soon after his arrival. It turns out that she and her baby are being attacked by a persistent rat. Walter plugs up the rat-hole, but they still aren't safe. Walter is having nightmares - dreams that seem to have been inspired by the first neighbor, who warns him of a witch and her familiar: a rat with a human face. Walter soon suspects that the witch of his nightmare is real and that she is going to force him to kill the baby. Written by J. Spurlin

More Lovecraft from Stuart Gordon
25 September 2009 | by (Ankara, Turkey) – See all my reviews

"Re-Animator" and "From Beyond" director Stuart Gordon seizes the opportunity, as perhaps could have been expected, to update a 1930s "Weird Tales" short story from the genre legend H.P. Lovecraft, whom he seems so greatly to admire, as his entry in the show's first season.

Ezra Godden display some schoolboy charm as the physics grad student with a dimensional doorway in the corner of his digs and Chelah Horsdal reciprocates in kind with a distinctly distressed desirability whilst Jay Brazeau heads a succinct supporting cast that includes Campbell Lane and Susan Bain.

The master does his best to bring the classic yarn bang up to date but the supernatural elements of the Lovecraftian Cthulhu Mythos start to look decidedly hokey when brought into the modern world on a limited subscription channel budget and the whole thing subsequently falls a little flat.

That's what happens when you travel through space and time.
