| a surprise package of weird tales
Some years ago I heard about this movie and thought it sounded kind of interesting. I could not find it anywhere else, so I had to order it from the production companies website. For some reason, I don't really remember, I could only get the full package (the DVD, a poster, a T-shirt and a card signed by someone involved), which was of course more expensive than just the DVD. I was still going to school back then and for me it was a lot of money for a movie I didn't know much about. I eventually ordered it anyway and I have not regretted it.

It's certainly not for everyone. It's an independent movie and it shows. The movie consists of different short films, loosely based on H.P. Lovecrafts work, connected by a story about a journalist, who is researching Lovecraft. Some of the segments were a little...experimental. They are all quite different and I did not like all of them equally as much, but the good thing about films like this is that if you don't like one part you might like the next. I ended up liking most of them in one way or the other

I think it is not necessarily a horror movie in the traditional sense, some moments were rather funny or just plain weird.

Although I gave the movie 8 stars, I would not recommend it to everyone, but if you like Lovecraft, independent cinema or weird short films (or better yet, all of those things), give it a chance.
