Cthulhu is called again
27 February 2011 | by mario_cSee all my reviews

I didn't watch the first movie, LA HERENCIA VALDEMAR, but even so I decided give it a try on the purpose it was based on H.P. Lovecraft mythology about the ancient monsters that ruled the Earth before mankind.

In fact this movie refers Lovecraft, to the point of the writer himself take part in it! AH AH! It's just an actor of course but it's funny the director put a character of H.P. Lovecraft in the movie.

It could have been a bit better with more suspense and more H.P.'s monsters (nice characterization of Cthulhu though) but I guess it's not that bad to a movie of this genre.

I score it 6/10
