Re: Del Toro on "At the Mountains of Madness"

I just finished At The Mountains of Madness and I have to say, it was horrendously written. The movie can't be anything but better than the story. I started reading Lovecraft anthologies over the summer and this is, by far, the most boring tale I've read -- which is a shame, because I've enjoyed Lovecraft and archeological stories, uncovering a mysterious and ominous past, are pretty damned cool in my book. But this story? Not so much. Actually, the story itself is interesting enough, and notable for how it expands Lovecraft's mythos. But the minutiae with which Lovecraft describes things is just mind-numbingly dull.
