^^ Completely agree. Except I haven't seen Repo yet and I don't wear skull jewelry.

Whisperer In Darkness is here!

If all goes well, I'll get out of work early on Friday and see it then.
How was it? The site says the Blu-ray is coming soon, so I'm holding off a bit longer.
It was excellent. They took quite a few liberties with the story, which surprised me-- more liberties than were necessary to translate a Lovecraftian narrative into a visual one. And it doesn't have the feel of a 30s movie to the degree that Cthulhu had of a 20s movie; you'll notice a couple of things that they never would have done in the 30s. But I enjoyed every minute of it. These guys are devoted to Lovecraft and they know what they're doing. The behind-the-scenes features are an inspiration to independent filmmakers. You won't be sorry for getting it.
Please stop by my Gallery and YouTube Page for a visit. And read Trunkards! And check out my Heroes essays.
