Update on The Whisperer in Darkness

It’s been quite some time since we first ran a story about an in-the-works adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Whisperer in Darkness (check it out here), and today we’re finally ready to post a follow-up. What the hell took so long, you ask? Read on to find out.

The HP Lovecraft Historical Society posted an extensive update on the grassroots project: We’ve got 58 scenes being shot at 14 different physical locations, some in Los Angeles, some in New England. We’re working on the designs of Wilmarth’s costumes, Akeley’s house, and Mi-Go’s anatomy. We’re lining up our crew, period vehicles, rain machines, and our hellishly bizarre list of props. Friends and artists around the world are working on the movie even now. We’re on track to start actually shooting footage at the end of summer. By the end of September all work with actors should be done, and we’ll move onto special effects and editing. We’re not sure when the movie will be done, but hopefully sometime this winter.”

You have to respect the hard work being done on this production. From the sounds of things, and based on the teaser trailer from October, 2007, you can watch below, I think it’ll be well worth the wait. Be sure to read the full story over at The HP Lovecraft Historical Society , and keep checking back for updates.

    Movie versions of Lovecraft stories have had a difficult time of it. Most of them are awful, but the Lovecraft Society looks like they’re working hard to make something respectful here. Can’t wait to see it.
