Cthulhu Review

cthulhu

The best Lovecraftian (more inspired by, then an adaptation of) movie yet; albeit a creepy, well-shot, but artsy, and low-budget, so no-monsters film. I really wanted to like this movie more and the set-up is fantastic, but there is really no pay-off, except for some stylistic and frenetic scene jumps and ‘discoveries’. Tori Spelling has a small role and is quite good playing the sultry, evil vixen. Then there are these incredible, mind-blowing shots, one with a swimming polar bear, and the other with some sort of dimension portal (I think). Overall, I found the material to be a worthy diversion, but it helps if you are familiar with HP Lovecraft and the Cthulhu story-line.
