Well Done Lovecraft and a Good Second Story
11 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the uninitiated, H. P. Lovecraft was Edgar Allen Poe without the press clippings. His stories are masterpieces of horror and the Cthulhu mythos is a wonderful creation. In this offering, a handsome young artist's life is looked at in retrospect. He made ends meet by giving painting lessons, teaching those he taught, to "paint what they see." His paintings are examples of incredible horror, disfigured, disgusting images on canvas. A young female artist takes a liking to him and begins to follow him. She wants to get inside his head and see his studio. Of course, she is heading for a fall. An excellent adaptation of the Lovecraft story.

A trio of film-flam artist make a living, doing séances, conjuring up phony spirits, and bilking vulnerable people out of their money. Steve Lawrence, Eydie's singing partner, plays the brains of the outfit. Harvey Lembeck, of the Beach Party movies, is the creative mastermind. Unfortunately, Steve can't keep his hands off Lembeck's wife. This leads to some unfortunate consequences in the afterlife. Kind of a standard story with little imagination.

"An Act of Chivalry" is a one minute filler. I will ask the question: When was the last time a group of men took off their hats in the presence of a woman?
