Fantastic Homage To Film Noir And H.P. Lovecraft, 28 October 2012
Author: Phil Lawrence from United States

A truly impressive production, "The Whisperer In Darkness" is as much a sincere homage to the weird storytelling of H.P. Lovecraft, as it is a faithful recreation of the pacing, nuance, and style of 1930's Hollywood film noir and horror. The actors give serious performances; with neither camp nor insincerity, they deliver studied emulations of early 20'th century acting methods. The script takes liberties with the original Lovecraft story, but never in a disrespectful way; the truly disconcerting moods and feelings of the original prose are reproduced with startling efficacy. The costumes, set designs, and filming locations are excellent. The score is dynamic and evocative of the era. The "advanced technologies" are portrayed from a 1930's perspective--- indeed, much as Lovecraft himself likely envisioned them. CGI was used sparingly, but tastefully; toward the end the special effects bore an amazing resemblance to stop-motion models. CGI, or traditional animation? Either way, it enhanced the vintage feel of the film considerably. Truly a labor of love by talented individuals who genuinely adore both Lovecraft and the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema.
