Oh, that's excellent. It certainly looks as if it should feature Alan Rickman, Donald Sutherland, and, of course, Johnny Depp.

You never can tell with these low budget independant films, for every cracker there's a Tim Hines/Pendragon Pictures War of the Worlds.

It ROCKS!

I've got it, right now, borrowed from a friend. It's amazing. Cthulhu is stop-motion - the way he should be - and Ry'leh is a perfect non-Euclidian jumble of German Expressionist forced-perspective art direction and dripping seaweed - the way it should be. The score is also fantastic. Extraordinarily close to the classic short story, and highly recommended to any avid Cthulhu completist.:cthulhu:

Connecting two threads here: maybe an activity for TONMO Con II could include a screening of this sure-to-become cult classic? And maybe a possible introduction before the film regarding the essential characters, themes, and settings for the non-Cthulhuists in the group? Any takers/volunteers?

Cheers!

NICE!! I want to see it!

Say, when Cthulhu calls, does he use 1-800-CALL ATT?


The Collect call of cthulhu........ like it wasn't scary enough.

as for tonmocon, you could give out copies of the cthulhu chick tract before the showing.
