****.

A bit of a period piece -- somewhat dated, in other words, which is only to be expected. I especially liked the updated (to the 1980s) continuation of the theme from At the Mountains of Madness, where Lovecraft's Antarctic explorers returned with Elder technologies to weaponize in western warfare.
