It has been confirmed that Guillermo Del Toro and James Cameron are working on a film adaption of the Lovecraftian story At the Mountain of Madness.

Best movie news of the year, this is gonna be a bloody excellent film, and if done right it will be very terrifying.

Having a weakness for bad horror, I would love it to be as good.

My benchmark would be the black-and-white silent version of Call of Cthulhu though.

Its James Cameron. So there is roughly a 90% chance youll see bitching about environmental issues, streamlined aliens. guy who falls in love with a shoggoth and lets everyone know how misunderstood they are, hot scientist chick who couldnt keep a job at McDonalds etc etc

So suddenly, every movie James Cameron ever makes will be similar to Avatar? You really take your username seriously, don't you?

I really don't know what to say... Should I be happy that they are finally going to make a watchable H.P. Lovecraft movie? Or should I be extremely upset that its most likely going to be butchered and beaten just for the masses?

seeing as Del Toro is involved I would expect it to be far from butchered, I think he's the person alive who could make it watchable and faithful to the origin

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
