Wow... just, bravo.
Yep, first time going back to the beginning of Gordon. I loved King of the Ants and Stuck.
I enjoyed Stuck quite a bit. Thought it was good trashy fun. Gonna have to check out King of Flies.
*Ants. King of Flies is something else.
These movies aren't usually my kind of thing but the synopsis of this and the next two re-animator movies are hilarious...
Re-Animator is great.
Just watching this, does anybody know if the guy who plays Herbert West also takes part in the audiobook, his voice seems identical to the guy who narrates the book.
Jeffrey Combs, I wouldn't be surprised if it is. He couldn't fit more perfectly into this role. Born for it.
I've got to queue up From Beyond next. Sounds amazing. More Lovecraft please.
Oh yeah he does actually, he has such a creepy voice and nails the mixture of terror and obsession that is needed for the character. Yes me too, although I really wonder why none of his stories have been adapted in a more serious way, there are so many good ones.
His particular brand of insanity doesn't translate really well to the big screen I think. A film that captures the feel of his stories without actually really being one is In the mouth of madness.
Yes that is very true, and that movie reminded me a lot of him aswell! "The colour out of space" and "The music of Erich Zann" would be not that hard to do I would say, with some trickery, as of course everything is described as "unimaginable, unpalpable, inconcievable" etc. There is also a story about an investigator that tries to hunt down a cult in the southern swamps, but the name escapes me at the moment. Oh and "The shunned house" could be adapted to so many different genres, as a drama, mistrery or haunted house story, it works on many levels. But oh well...
Lovecraft needs a Darabont. Someone who understand him as an author, otherwise his psychological terror won't work!
Very true, but who could that be?
Based on his last film I'd nominate Aranovski (or however you spell his name ;) )
Do you mean Black Swan Aronofsky? Boy, that name just doesn't seem right but that is in fact correct spelling.
Yup, that's the one I mean! Black Swan is my favourite horror film, think he'd do great with some lovecraftian terror.
Not a bad choice, he is one of my favorite directors, and he does the downward spiral very well, which is also prominent in many Lovecraft-stories.
