No Lovecraft Fan Can Miss This!
19 January 2007 | by ladyeuthanasiaSee all my reviews

Aaron Vanek's terrific adaptation of "The King in Yellow" is a bone-chilling story about a woman caught between two worlds and her relationship to a mad artist. This is sure to please any fan of Lovecraft, especially those enamored of Robert Chambers' work. Vanek successfully captures the atmosphere of Chambers' work like never before. He is in no small way assisted by Tynes' clever script, which superbly translates to the screen all the elements of what makes Chambers so great on the page. (Lovecraft fans who might not be familiar with Vaneks' other films might be familiar with the sublime Pagan Publishing, which Tynes founded.) The best performance was by Shawna Waldron as Tess. She was charming, even mesmerizing, although all the performances were terrifyingly good. The film was shot on HD and is of surprisingly high quality -- no small feat and certainly a feather in Vanek's cap for working so deftly in the medium.

I can't wait to see what Vanek scares up next!
