Friend and fellow NM writer Steve Stirling lent me his copy of the "Call of Cthulhu" movie the other day, and, although this might be an inappropriate word to use in connection with the dread Cthulhu, it was quite charming.
The black and white, forty seven minute (if I remember correctly) silent film took the filmakers two years to produce, and obviously was a labor of love. The acting is excellent, the sets are mostly terrific (especially the R'yleh set), and, most importantly, the screenplay is very faithful to the original both in spirit and in letter.
I highly recommend it to any H.P. Lovecraft fans out there, which I have been since reading "The Rats in the Wall" in middle school lo these many years ago.
It will certainly NOT be coming to your cineplex anytime soon, but it is well worth seeking out.
