Films I've Already Seen

People who added this item 217 Average listal rating (97 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.3
A silent, black & white film named after the famous story on which it is based. It's the first commercial film created by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society.
Great film. Love the acting, the lighting, the vibes, and, of course, the story.

Cthulhu (2007)
This one is actually based on the story "The Shadow Over Innsmouth". It's got a pretty great story, and some pretty freaky images in it! A great adaptation of the story, in my opinion.

The Evil Dead (1981)
While not actually based on a Lovecraft story, it does contain one of Lovecraft's most famous and powerful artifacts -- the Necronomicon!

The Necronomicon opens a rift in time that sends Ash back to Medieval ages, and it once again raises the dead.

Dagon (2001)
This one is also based on "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" but is a vastly different adaptation than "Cthulhu" listed above. This one is a bit darker, and more sinister. Not as good as the one above, but still not bad.

This was excellent. I seriously enjoy the show that the HP Lovecraft Historical Society puts on. This is what Lovecraft films are supposed to be.

From what I can tell, this one isn't specifically based on any story in particular, but references several different Lovecraftian themes, madness especially. It was actually really good.

It was cheesy and goofy... but not terrible. It's about the supposed descendant of Lovecraft.

I've heard bad reviews, and I'm not even real sure on what this one's about. I'll have to read more into it.

This film is based on "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward". I'm a sucker for older horror films, and this one even has Vincent Price in it!

Films based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the progenitor of the legendary Cthulhu mythos. I love his writings, and hope to eventually see all the movies that have been based off his glorious work.
