Okay, there's been a fair amount of notice taken lately of the small independent film The Call of Cthulhu, an exercise in silent film that is one of the most loving adaptations of a Lovecraft story ever put on film. But along with that has come some discussion of scattered other film adaptations of his work as well. Until the last few years, I'd have said there wasn't a lot of ground to cover here, but lately I've become aware that there actually is a tremendous amount of Lovecraftian cinema of one stripe or another. So I suggested the possibility of a thread on the topic, and sort of had it tossed back in my court. So here goes: I'd like to hear from different people about any Lovecraftian work they've seen in film; this doesn't need to be strictly about adaptations of his own stories, but can include Lovecraftian elements, borrowing of themes, etc. as well. There are also a couple of sites that list upcoming Lovecraft projects, and I'll be checking into them from time to time to see what's the latest news, and I'll post the url here at a later date, should there be enough interest. In the meantime, for anyone interested, there's The Lurker in the Lobby, which is a rather good guide to such, and there's also A Complete Guide to Lovecraftian films out there as well (with considerable overlap, but some differences), and as we go along I'll be introducing discussions on some of the titles they have in these books as well. So, for anyone who'd like: put on your thinking caps, jump in with anything you think may fit, and I hope we may be able to have a fun and entertaining, and maybe a bit controversial (now and again) discussion on the topic.
