A clown, a wannabe painter, an awful actress and a plastic artist meet at an strange art gallery that hides a secret. They will soon understand that they just started their way to the success even if it supposes to pay a high cost.
How many people now know the name of Howard Lovecraft? I do not think he is known, but known in narrow circles, and it's sad. Adaptations of his books in high demand do not enjoy, and to finance them no one wants because they are unlikely to pay off at the box office, and that's why one out trash, or Class "B" in his works. Adaptations of the good I can distinguish except short film "The Call of Cthulhu" and film "Muse Pickman", not Hollywood movies, art-house, at least, not class "B".
Films series "Legacy of Valdemar" is not taken not by what the story Lovecraft, but, nevertheless, from the great maestro in this movie very much.
Few talk about the first film, but rather on its merits have many screen adaptations of Lovecraft. In this film was not an original storyline, do not argue. But in this film was a tremendous atmosphere of Lovecraft books. The gloomy house, nice clothes, a monster of the other world, Gothic surroundings, this is what made the first film amazing. There's even a Lovecraft himself was lit, a great actor picked up on his role. There's even Bram Stoker managed, briefly, in the frame to appear.
Still, after watching the first part had some not realizing until the end of the story is not told, it was clear that we are waiting for a sequel. And continuing happened, however, atmospheric.
At this time, there are a lot of Lovecraft. Here and "Nekronamikon," and the cult of "Dagon" and Cthulhu, Azathoth even had time to appear. I want to say that the film is very pleasant to fans of Lovecraft, I at least think so. For this is the most worthy, what happened in recent years based on the books of the great master.
