The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society has (finally!) finished their movie version of Lovecraft’s “The Whisperer in Darkness,” and the DVDs are almost ready to ship. In fact, you can pre-order and have it arrive in time for Christmas? And what better way to celebrate the holidays than by watching a movie about brain-stealing jumbo shrimp from outer space?

I knew you’d agree.

In the meantime, you can enjoy the trailers.

Here’s another trailer for the forthcoming The Whisperer in Darkness movie from the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society:

I’m really looking forward to this. Their silent-movie rendering of Lovecraft’s “The Call of Cthulhu” was brilliant, and I fully expect this to be just as good.

Popcorn, Dr. Pepper, and Cthulhu. It just doesn’t get better than this. 😀

I love the horror stories of H.P. Lovecraft, loosely set in a 1920s America in which the nihilist mood induced by the horrors of the First World War is applied to the universe as a whole. Uncaring gods, aliens to whom Man is less than an insect, ancient histories stretching back millions of years, secret cults and their sanity-blasting secrets, a hopeless, meaningless, doomed world… Good times! 🙂  And, as you can see in the sidebar, one of my favorite roleplaying games is one based on Lovecratft’s works, Call of Cthulhu*. So you can bet your sweet shoggoth that I’m looking forward to this:

This is from the same group that did the wonderful Call of Cthulhu silent movie, so I have great hope that The Whisperer in Darkness will be just as good or better.

*(Seriously. You wouldn’t think a game in such a world would be fun, but it is!)
