Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Cold and wet. But it burns. Sucking the life out of everything. It came down in the rock. It lives in the well. It grew down there. Poisoning everything. Changing everything. Into something like the world it came from. Into what it knows. We all know it's coming, but we can't get away. It's got everything that lives. They all drunk the water. It got strong. Fed itself on them. It came from the stars... where things ain't like they are here. It's just a color....

Great adaptation of one of the most original writers that ever walked Earth
There is something so intrinsically 'other' about Lovecraft's writing; it's a horror category unto itself.
The reason I liked this movie...is that it gets closer to making Lovecraft a little more mainstream. Lovecraft stories...and the movies that are based on them, if done right...are waking nightmares Loved it. If you go into it knowing it's not a huge budget movie, the material, you'll appreciate it much more.
