Above is the trailer for Call of Cthulhu by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society, a thoroughly delightful, eerie film. I'll just let the Society make the pitch:
The famed story is brought richly to life in the style of a classic 1920s silent movie, with a haunting original symphonic score. Using the "Mythoscope" process — a mix of modern and vintage techniques, the HPLHS has worked to create the most authentic and faithful screen adaptation of a Lovecraft story yet attempted.
Many of their techniques really remind you of Nosferatu and other silent classics of horror. They seem to have brought a style of film making back from the dead here. Quite a nice way to blow an evening. Check it out here. And if you have Netflix you're going to stream that mother.
The Society has other projects in the making -- like a similarly filmed "talkie" version of The Whisperer in Darkness. I can't wait.
(Special thanks to Joe Monster of From Beyond Depraved for starting me on a whole stop-motion thing this morning. This can only end with my finishing my XXX version of Davie and Goliath.)
