I was looking through my tv guide tonight, and on AMC they played The Dunwich Horror, "based" on the HP Lovecraft story, which Im a fan of. I can't believe how bad this movie was. For instance, "Dunwich" takes place in the 1920's, at least the actual story, but the movie... its set in the 70s. And the main titles at the start... my god. I was laughing so hard. They play this bizzare funk music. It's like the opening credits of Friday the 13th Part 3! The movie itself, was equally horrible, but I thought Dean Stockwell did a fairly good job, considering that everything else in this shitstorm betrayed everything the short story stood for. And this has got to be the worst lighting in ANY movie i've seen. Bar none. The lighting is so "neon-ish", it would make Joel Schumacher's Batman movies blush! Though shitty the movie was, the atmosphere of the movie was a LITTLE creepy. It's barely worth a rental. OK. One Lovecraft based film down, and I don't know what I should see next. From Beyond, or DAGON. Hmmmm.
