It appears that the only filmmakers who have ever been able to do Lovecraft right are Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator,From Beyond,Dagon) and the late Dan O'Bannon (The Resurrected). The number of hideous films that ahve nothing to do with Lovecraft, but still attempt to cash in on the name continues to grow. This film is hideous beyond belief. The filmmakers state numerous times that they are Lovecraft fans, but go out of their way (or at least it seems that way) to pretty much ignore everything that make Lovecraft one of the most influential writers of horror in favor of going off on their own pointless tangent. This movie is not worth watching.

Why is it that so few filmmakers can get Lovecraft movies right? I mean, this movie isn't just mediocre. It's absolutely terrible!

This review might seem a little out-of-character for me, because I tend to love b movies. I totally love the "so bad it's good" class of pictures, but this one was so bad it went past "so bad it's good" and came all the way around the horn again and just ended up being twice as bad.

Sounds weird, but it makes sense in my head.

It's been proven many times that a creative and resourceful person can make a great piece of horror with a small budget and a cast of terrible actors. Unfortunately, this movie fails at every step of the way.

And the worst part was the really bad CG Cthulhu (who they call Andusius) that shows up at the end. Very unfortunate.

How can any body call this piece of @#% Lovecraft

"Just because a hulking monster with writhing tentacles out of it mouth appears for 3 seconds you can't call this Lovecraft. This is an awful movie. It tries to be psychological by constantly bombarding the view with shaky images of bloody stuff. The movie steals all the clichés of Asylum movies and throws in a few scenes where high school level acting is attempted. If you want a better Lovecraftian adaptation, check out the movie Dagon. If I could give it 0 stars I would. Oh. . .one more thing the special effects guy should study a bit more anatomy the gross scenes would be more scary and realistic."

"This is easily the worst movie I've ever seen with the second being "The Chateau" (seriously, it's worse than that). I love HP Lovecraft, but this is total and utter crap. I'd give this movie negative stars if I could as I can never get back the time spent on it. I think the creator of this movie should find another hobby other than creating crappy movies to torture people with."
A complete rancid disaster!

"From Savini's stilted cameo, to the amatuer special make-up effects, to the bad early 80's style video effects, this "film" is a complete waste of time.

While I fully understand all beginning film-makers need to start somewhere, and that most of their first attempts are painfully bad, this one really takes the cake!

To say this was LOOSELY based on a HP Lovecraft, is an understatement. Sadly, there are extremely few films that stay true to Lovecraft's writings. And, this one is a prime example. It starts out with a few incoherant murmurs of the original story, then quickly devolves into a mess of self-agrandizing scene-chewing.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!!! It has next to nothing to do with Lovecraft, except the title. Even if you are a complete masochist and JUST HAVE TO SEE IT, sucker the local village idiot to rent it for you. DO NOT BUY IT."
