This comedic send up of H.P. Lovecraft's master work, "Call of Cthulhu" takes the main character (Cthulhu, an alien god, bent on the destruction of man in an orgy of chaotic destruction) and presents it as a fluffy puppet who is running his own call-in show. People call in to ask for relationship advice, farming suggestions, and cooking tips. The answer, more often than not, is a foaming rant confirming for the caller that Cthulhu will one day swallow their souls. Written by Brand Gamblin

I laughed so hard I went insane
23 April 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Calls for Cthulhu is a must see for any fan of H.P. Lovecraft.

Brand Gamblin gave me many belly laughs with his witty take on the Cthulhu Mythos. Cthulhu, in his form in this dimension as a soft green plushie, comes alive as a likable character that nevertheless has a sardonic take on life and who never lets us forget that he will swallow our souls in the end. The character is a kind of wish-fulfillment -- we wish we could so easily get away with such smart-alecky remarks in our own lives.

This is not the run-of-the-mill you tube video production. There is a good use of a virtual computer graphics set. The sound quality is good. The voice acting is spot on.

If only ALF had been this funny. Where was Cthulhu when we needed him?
