Lovecraft Would Have Given It The Thumbs Up
28 December 2015 | by texasarcaneSee all my reviews

Excellent tasteful script combining several Lovecraft stories and the Miskatonic settings. My only complaint is that it should have been longer. Finally somebody does Lovecraft right. There have too many terrible adaptations of his work using names and places only but the director of this film knew what he was doing and respected the medium.

Strikes a note of quality from the beginning to the end as a series of dreamlike vignettes having to do with a strange horn the protagonist has seen. A weird otherworldly feel permeates every scene and the sense of terrific horror just out of sight plagues the main character.

These guys did a period piece on a very low budget that is nonetheless extremely convincing. The cars, dress and settings looked early 1920's and it was obviously not all done with CGI. This crew should be proud of making such a superb film on a low budget.
