CALL OF CTHULHU, THE (1926/2005) - DVD

Stars Matt Foyer, John Bolen, Ralph Lucas, Chad Fifer and Susan Zuker. Produced by Sean Branney and Andrew Lewman. A man discovers the locked manuscripts and journals of his dead uncle. The stories and secrets they hold startle and alarm the nephew who confides the contents to an elderly confidant. The accounts recall a strange journey and the discovery of a cult that worships ancient gods from a netherworld that is in the shadows and just beyond the view of mankind. The cult is discovered in a steamy swamp. Their practices are terrifying and frightening. Journey by hired ship finds an island where perspectives are not quite right. And the demon, that has been released into our world from an ancient civilization of monsters, presides here. A huge creature towering cliffs and driving men into madness. This is one of the most highly recommended films now in the library here at Creepy Classics. A project with such care and artistic fortitude that is rises above all efforts of its kind. Based on the classic stories of H.P. Lovecraft, it is the movie closest to achieving the true atmosphere of Lovecraft fiction. Expect tremendous acting, direction, lighting, sets, make-up and thick, thick atmosphere. The best qualities of CURSE OF THE DEMON, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, FAUST, THE LOST WORLD (1925) and NOSFERATU all merge to create the elements that make this movie work. The concept was to take an H.P. Lovecraft story, get into the mind set that it was the period oft he story - 1926. Make the film as much as possible like a film-style from 1926. Modern technology was only used to help achieve that goal. A silent, black and white film with an incredibly rich, exciting and ominous music score. A true horror film in the tradition of true classics. DVD includes trailer, behind-the-scenes interviews, deleted material including additional stop-motion monster footage and optional inter-titles in 24 languages!
