Since we have a zombie threadthat touches on this, I thought it would be nice to have a good list of Lovecraft-inspired art, and what people think of the quality of each work.
Reading that thread, I immediately thought of In the Mouth of Madness, with Sam Neill. Nifty little movie, not based directly on a Lovecraft story, but it gets the feel. Even though there’s sex and stuff, which I realize Howard did not include in his stories.
I also agree with a poster there that **Cast a Deadly Spell **was fun. It doesn’t capture any of the atmosphere of a Lovecraft story, but it references the mythos, and is a neat spin on noir.
Stephen King’s Crouch End was pretty decent, and Jerusalem’s Lot is very much in the original eldritch vein, while Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald definitely deserved the Hugo it won.
**Prey **by Graham Masterson is a cheesy but fun take on Dreams in the Witch House.
The silent film of Call of Cthulhu is off the beaten path, but I think they did a really nice job with it.
And finally (for now), Rocky Coast Radio Theater has a showavailable on Audible that includes, IIRC, The Statement of Randolph Carter, which really gave me shivers!
Please share some good Lovecraft-inspired stuff, or warn us about bad renditions!
