Hello, I hope you have been enjoying our silent Sundays. Today, I’m going to take offer a different recommendation than normal. It is still a silent film, but this one is much more modern, having been released in 2007.
In February, 1928, H.P. Lovecraft published The Call of C’thulhu. A work which many would say set the tone for what he is most remembered for. It is an ambitious work and well worth a read, however, it was not converted into a faithful adaptation until 2007. The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society set to work filming this tale. Feeling that it was best to do it true to the time period, they made a modern silent film. For fans of the tale, you’ll appreciate this adaptation. If you are interested in a film that you’re not likely to see playing on most television stations or streaming services, then this little gem will pleasantly surprise you.
