Well, I know that Spanish director Guillermo del Toro ('Hellboy') has plans to adapt At the Mountains of Madness on a large-scale, but haven't heard any follow-up. I've always fancied a non-Sandra Dee adaptation of The Dunwich Horror myself.

I watched the trailer for this one. Trailer's are supposed to be sort of "best of" the movie, right? To make you want to go see it? If the trailer makes it look bad, just imagine sitting through a whole movie. I won't do it.

If you want to see a good HPL film you can't really go wrong with the stuff that Lurker Films is putting out on DVD. And I'm not just saying that because some music videos for The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets are on the "Rough Magik" collection.

And yes, the HPL Society's "The Call of Cthulhu" was a real piece of art! http://www.cthulhulives.org/cocmovie/

Gorey would have done a great job. He invited me to come and visit him once, which I never got around to doing.....too bad, I really liked his work and he was a real character.

Not in person. When I had the bookstore I was trying to find other books by him, so I called a number I found. It turned out to be his home number. He was fun to talk to and we must have talked for a couple of hours. He was exactly as you would expect him to be...a bit cranky, but funny cranky, and seemingly surprised that anyone would want to buy his books. The was he describe his house was exactly as you would expect it to be too. He also warned me that when I came I would have to walk around piles of books, move them from the sofa to sit down, etc, etc. He was definitely eccentric, but who would have expected anything else?
