The Dunwich Horror

by H. P. Lovecraft

Supposedly, I'm getting e-mail uptaeds on that movie, but I haven't received a single one. Let's say my hopes aren't high. Actually, "The Call of Cthulhu" was a decent story, but I'm not sure how it could be effectively adapted to film, and that's probably a problem with Lovecraft generally.Don't get me wrong: the man's literary achievements are impressive. Lovecraft invented a unique writing style that so many horror writers since him have emulated. He was one of the first to give us aliens who are, in some way, truly alien. He invented fictional occult lore so convincing some people think it's real. Unquestionably, Lovecraft did great things; but great things don't always make thrilling literature, and I find a Cthulhu Mythos story about as interesting to read as a biology textbook.
