The title is a lie. Cthulhu has NOTHING to do with this film. The movie is big on upside down crosses and stereotypical satanism, but there is no cthulhu anywhere to be seen. Yeah, they mention the necronomicon. That's it tho.
Lovecraft's stories never involved "satan" vs "jesus" - he was an athiest - his horror stories were absolute; there is no god, only ancient, unknown alien things that are waiting for the stars to be right so they can come back and eat our brains. This movie isn't even a good badfilm. It totally sucks balls.
And i agree with email@example.com
- a well done version of The Call of Cthulhu would be the ultimate authority on horror films anywhere. I doubt it will ever happen -there's not enough fans to promote it, and not enough rich directors/producers/writers who understand/appriciate lovecraft to take it up.
so in the mean time we're stuck with boring slasher flicks or regurgitated tales about the devil. True horror lies dreaming in sunken r'lyeh.
