    Not all of it, just one or two of what you posted.

    Shane nailed it when he said Lovecraft stuff wasn't really ever meant to be visual, at least not in the Cthulhu mythos. The biggest part of it was that the actual sight of such indescribable horrors would remake your mind into an unsane nonthing.

    Yeah, he's right, I just enjoy the art generally.

    The Dunwich Horror was solid, especially for its time. Nothing too special though.

    Not a remake. It's a prequel set at the Norwegian base the American crew in the Carpenter version referenced and scoped out. It's actually pretty good, though there's unfortunately too much goofy CGI. The nods and ties to the first movie are pretty well done, and this one ends right were the Carpenter movie begins.

    Haha, you mean the part where the whole thing could have been averted if it weren't for a language barrier?

    Language barrier, plus the one dude just started grabbing grenades. Even if he was speaking perfect English that wouldn't have gone over too well.


    That's actually a complaint folks have with the prequel, they shoehorn in some Americans at the Norwegian base. It didn't bother me though, they explain it well enough in the context of the movie and it is just that, a movie. There were still plenty of non-English speakers for the realists out there.

    Was going to comment on The Thing prequel question but ZP pretty much summed it up. I'll just add that I liked it more than I thought it would, and I'm glad to have seen it.

    Loved that movie.

    PS - That clip just reminded me that both Andrea and Dale from The Walking Dead were in it.

    Always hated that music though. Sounds like the composer just ripped off Munich's score. I never thought it really fit the film.

    I can kind of understand why they gave up hope when they saw the giant Cthulhu monster, it being so mind-blowingly awesome and all, yet their reaction doesn't make sense from a tactical standpoint.

    It's not like that thing would have ever noticed them, and the smaller monsters would either be eaten by it or they'd follow wherever it was going. If Tom Jane had been thinking clearly that would have been the moment where he said "hey guys, I see how we can survive this!"

    Further proof that the Dtoid forums cause psychic powers. We're all on the same wavelength now!

    It can be. The worst part is how it leaves you at a disadvantage, with clear minded people usually being in the minority. Sometimes it's necessary to go along with the same illusions and preconceptions as everyone else. Jesus, Socrates, Martin Luther King...some of the greatest men who ever lived would've been happier if they had just gone along with the program. Well maybe not "happy" but they'd have lived longer.

    Of course this has fuck all to do with Giant Cthulhu lol. I'm just being contemplative atm, I guess. Also,

    Spoiler!
