Seriously, if you love film and if you love Lovecraft, do not sleep, do not eat, do not rest until you’ve seen this gorgeous cinema retelling of The Call of Cthulhu. Mixing Mythos with German Expressionist film is a thing of utter GENIUS. Not only does it set the story in its time of origin, but it also brings the feeling of cosmic terror and the beautiful unknown to the proceedings. And I cannot believe this was done on a small budget – it looks FANTASTIC. Every detail is carefully constructed, every shot exquisitely framed and, if you did not know better, you would swear it was a lost film found on a dusty shelf in a film archive somewhere in a small eastern european municipality. If you miss out on The Call of Cthulhu (and their follow up 2011 film, Whisperer in Darkness AND their Mercury Theater-style radio program, Dark Adventure Theater), you are only cheating yourself.

Cthuhlu fhtagn, fellow cultists!
