Default The Call of Cthulhu

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478988/
Anyone else watched it?
Personally, I think its an awesome film even if you are not an H.P.L fan but even more awesome if you are. The fact that its a silent movie adds a lot and makes it impossible to ruin it with bad action ^^
Any thoughts on this one or additions?

Yeah I've seen it, I thought it was pretty good and it was certainly very faithful to the original story. I'm reading a collection of H.P. Lovecraft's work at the moment and I would definitely recommend it to and science fiction and horror fan.

Praise the sun!

I watched it and it really does have the look and feel to an old 40's silent film. I would watch it again for sure.

I want that poster.

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
