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!"

1990 - Spain/UK
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.
