Dr. Munoz refers to Randolph Carter as a "young Hemingway". The story is set in 1925, and Hemingway did not attract public attention until he published his first novel ("The Sun Also Rises") in 1926. See more »

Cool air is (for once) a faithful adaption of a Lovecraft short story. The camera work is great and the mood is perfect. The actor that plays the old guy is incredible! If you are a Lovecraft fan, seek out this movie and own it, I did.
