sounds like i might take a pass on this one. I don't think any movie has done justice to HPL. Well at the mountains of madness had the right feel but...........

Erich? What was the one you brought up...that was passable, if not downright good. (Call of me)
This one, I have seen most of it already on various sites...it is farcical and completely unlike HPL in any way, shape, or formlessness!

Like, totally gag a cephalopod!

Are you talking of "The Call of Cthulhu" silent flick from the HPLHS? That was the same crew that brought you the recording of "Shoggoth on the Roof". Yeah, I thought this "Cthulhu" flick with Tori Spelling has looked just horrible from the get-go, but at least Ms. Spelling definitely has the "Innsmouth Look" already. That would also be a great tag-line for a line of cthonic comsetics - obviously eye-makeup.

But to the ancients, 1 minute is as a lifetime! This is heresy! This isn't Mountains of Madness 90210!

There HAS to be an ally of Cthulhu somewhere off this cold Northern California coast who can right this terrible wrong...
