Loosely inspired by Lovecraft but not based on any particular story.

"The Book of Eibon", which is a fictional book originally created by frequent Lovecraft collaborator Clark Ashton Smith in his short story Ubbo-Sathla (1933).

Dir: Lucio Fulci
1980 - Italy
Loosely inspired by Lovecraft but not based on any particular story.
Lovecraft references:
The town of Dunwich, from The Dunwich Horror (1928). August Derleth (Lovecraft's publisher and collaborator) also used Lovecraft's fictional town of Dunwich for some of his "Cthulhu Mythos" stories, most notably The Shuttered Room (1959).


"The dead will rise up all over the world
and take over the Earth! You must get to
Dunwich... You must re-close those gates!"

Very loosely inspired by Lovecraft. In fact, I think the only thing this movie has in common with Lovecraft is the name "Cthulhu" in the title and the fact that the story revolves aroung an old magician and occult forces.

I don't know if this counts, because technically Masters of Horror is a TV show. But I figure I'd mention: http://www.listal.com/dvd/masters-horror-stuart-gordon-dreams-witch-house

I've been a Lovecraft fan since the age of 20 but I had no idea there were THIS many films made from his works. Looks like I have some things to add to my watch-list. ;)
Thanks for posting this!!

I am certain this film mentions the Cthulu myth and plays heavily on Lovecraft (ufos, some alien/weird creatures/paranormal happenings, some sort of weird killings)--- Occult: The Unidentified http://www.listal.com/movie/okaruto
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Jan 5 1:26
Hey xxixii. Thanks for the recommendation. I've only seen Gurotesuku (aka Grotesque) by the same director, which was a pretty decent (and fairly disturbing) take on the "torture-porn" genre films such as Hostel, etc. I'll have to check this one out too. Added to list.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Jan 6 18:13
Occult is more in the vein of Noroi: The Curse, following the same faux documentary/found footage format - so it will be very slow at the start but gets weirder and better the further it goes - funnily though i hate remakes I think this one would be great ...better graphics and setting it in the US would freak people out....apart from a few scenes there is hardly any blood or violence

I am still undecided if the ending is handled brilliantly or appallingly and there are a few wtf type moments
