Darkest Evil Becomes Dunwich, First Trailer!





It was back in April when I first told you about production beginning on The Darkest Evil, a new adaptation of Lovecraft's classic tale The Dunwich Horror starring Jeffrey Combs. Today we bring you the exclusive first trailer from this Lovecraftian horror!

Since I last wrote about it the Darkest Evil title has been dropped and outright changed to The Dunwich Horror. Directed by Leigh Scott (Beast of Bray Road, Transmorphers) under the banner of Bullet Films, Jeffrey Combs takes on the role of Wilbur Whateley, the diabolical man looking to free the "Old Ones" once he gets his hands on the Necronomicon. That role was played by Dean Stockwell in the 1970's film version; look for him in a different role in this version.

Talk is of a limited theatrical release in the next year. Until then, here's the first teaser trailer for this latest adaptation of The Dunwich Horror.

This looks like lots of fun, especially for fans of the uneven adaptations of Lovecraft in film. Clearly done with loving respect for what's gone before, especially with casting not only Combs but Dean Stockwell. I only wish Dean kept his sideburns and handbar mustach from the '70s version.

Looking forward to this. Thanx for the trailer!

Couldn't be worse than Stuart Gordon's Lovecraft comedies.

Will give it a try when it hits.
