There are sounds particular to men and sounds particular to beasts and it is most unsettling to hear the one when the source would suggest the other.

Do you mean a literal adaptation of his work? To me a lot of HPL's stories are very hard to capture on film. I never thought I would see COC done right but someone "got it". I think somewhere down the road, possibly with del Toro doing At the Mountains of Madness, we'll get that but I can't see a studio not tampering with the stories as they are.

At the Mountains of Madness should be decently budgeted.

There have been some good adaptations as Night Gallery episodes.

The HPLHS is working on The Whisperer in Darkness. I agree! I can't wait.

well being acurite to the story can be good or bad. I just think it would be cool to get Lovecraft in a nice Kind of Peter Jackson type flick. large budget, 3 or 4 hours long.

I would love to see The Shadow Over Innsmouth done as close to the story as possible that way.

I didn't see that one, but they did Cool Air the same season. That was pretty good.

Isn't there an animated Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath?

The Alert was bought off of Ebay and came as a very detailed but unfinished model. The intereriors where built from mostly plywood.

Yes! I have that one too. Guerilla Productions did that and Lord Cthulhu did a review for DC and the old site. It's flash animation but very good and sticks to the source material.
