The Call of Cthulhu

The HP Lovecraft Historical Society presents a short adaptation of the classic short story about an investigation into a strange, world-wide cult. Done as if a 1920s silent film, this is probably the best version of a Lovecraft story ever made, even while it has a tiny budget and all the cheesiness of old time movies. Perhaps the best aspect of the film was the various statue versions of the evil god, Cthulhu, and the swap cultists. I wonder if this could have been done as a silent film, but without the melodrama of the 20s. Take a look at what else the HPLHS has to offer here.
