Check out this neat Italian fan animation of H.P. Lovecraft’s classic story, At The Mountains of Madness. I came across this earlier on my reader (via ToplessRobot.com), and unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to watch it all the way through… ’cause it’s 30 minutes long and I’ve got stuffs to do this morning. I have watched half of it though, and plan to watch the rest later. It is crudely drawn, but still pretty impressive with what they, Cthulhu Films, put together (I’ve gotta wonder if they drew up the six foot tall blind albino penguins…). Also equally impressive is their website; they have more stuff to watch (and even some games it looks like) for you to see there. I just browsed it long enough to watch an animated short called “A Lovecraft Dream” which was… interesting(?)… not sure what’s the right word for it. Check it out and see for yourself.
Looks like there’s an online petition to get H.P. Lovecraft’s At The Mountains of Madness made into a movie. I’m currently reading the story, and working on a Lovecraft inspired project, so this caught my interest when I read it on BleedingCool.com. I’ve tried reading At the Mountains of Madness a couple times before, but never finished it. It would always make me fall asleep. I’m not saying it’s a bad story. It’s not. I just can’t seem to stay awake while reading it. For the past week I’ve been having problems getting, and staying, asleep, so Sunday I picked up a set of set of Lovecraft’s stories to read at night. I’m just at the part where they discover Lake’s camp has been destroyed. It really is a decent story (I think it’s the pacing or some thing about it that keeps knocking me out… I dunno…), and I would really like to see it made into a movie. Especially if Guillermo Del Toro is at the helm. I think he would do a great job bringing it to life. Anyhow, here’s what the petition says:
