Trivia

The opening swamp scene of the movie was originally intended to take place in a marsh in the south of Germany. When the location fell through it was decided that it would be more in keeping with the film's often self-deprecatory style of humor to change the setting of the scene to a kiddie pool in someone's backyard.

Great movie for fans of Lovecraft
13 September 2006 | by radical_edward260See all my reviews

If you love independent cinema, or H. P. Lovecraft, definitely check this movie out. It shows that you don't need to be associated to with a huge studio to make a witty, well made film.

Elias as the hapless journalist leads us through a compilation of shorts which embody the spirit of Lovecraft, but at the same to are quite humorous. And what other movie can boast having aliens, zombies, and snowmen?

The only thing I would say is if you haven't read Lovecraft, I think some of the references and jokes which I enjoyed may be lost on you, but nonetheless I would still say to check it out!
