Outstanding work. I find it more powerful than Lovecraft's original story. Poor HPL, repulsed by even the sight of seafood (from L. Sprague de Camp's bio of HPL).

"Dagon" and "Call of Cthulhu" and "Shadow Over Innsmouth" make so much sense in light of that fact.

Still, Voom's ending captures the *real* Lovecraftian horror of the tale: that humanity's time on earth is brief and something older than us will replace us. In fact, it might be at our front door right now.

That aspect of Lovecraft's work still gives me shivers...the line “We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”

Thanks for a fright in the bright hours of the morning. I'm glad I didn't watch this in the small, quiet hours.

Hamlet Au

Thanks for the pointer, Nahasa, fixed!

Bettina Tizzy

Superb, Lainy! What Ignatius said... :)

But hey... too many credits! Has it really come to that? If so, we've gone too far.

I wouldn't mind seeing a transcription of the credits myself; those were way too small for my slowly failing eyesight. But a great film!

Moebius Overdrive

Wow, very nicely done. I applaud your production.
