HP LOVECRAFT DOUBLE FEATURE: Back on the big screen after hit Midnight Adrenaline screenings (SIFF 2006 & 2011), these two unique adaptations from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society use the styles of classic cinema to tell the unimaginable, tentacle-intensive horrors of H.P. Lovecraft.
THE CALL OF CTHULHU
A young man is charged with sorting out the estate of his much-whispered-about uncle. What he discovers includes mysterious cults, long-buried civilizations, and a malevolent galactic beastie or two. An impressively faithful, faux-silent film with a dazzling symphonic score. …
THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS
After unprecedented flooding in the remote Vermont mountains, strange stories surface of odd things found in the swollen rivers, in this adaptation of the classic story by H.P. Lovecraft.
Albert Wilmarth, a folklore professor at Miskatonic University, at first dismisses these sightings as figments of hysterical imaginations. That is, until he begins to correspond with Henry Akeley, a farmer who claims strange creatures are terrorizing him. Eventually summoned to meet the decrepit Akeley, Wilmarth discovers unearthly horrors beyond comprehension, and undertakes one last desperate attempt to escape the remote New England hills with his life and sanity intact.
As with their previous effort, the silent-film version of The Call of Cthulhu (SIFF 2006), filmmakers Sean Branney and Andrew Lehman evoke the classic cinematic style of a previous era, this time classic ‘30s horror films with a touch of ‘50s B-movie sci-fi. The resulting film perfectly captures the weird menace and foreboding atmosphere of Lovecraft’s original tale.
