Of the many films inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's haunting stories, this is one of the best.  Eldritch magic, corrupted ancestors, and hideous creatures made from random body parts are all on hand.

I posted about this one recently after renting it from Netflix.  I agree with everything in the review.  The scenes in the catacombs are superb and for once - frightening.  The ending could have been a bit stronger but even Lovecraft himself never wrote strong endings.

Overall, it's a seriously overlooked gem.  The acting all around is pretty good and special effects are top notch, especially for the time in which it was made.  It's refreshing to actually find a good Lovecraft adaptation after seeing so many bad ones over the years.

I have this movie on VHS, I need to see it on DVD.  The quality is not as good.  But I still love the movie.  I never get tired of seeing it.

Here's one I find interesting and would like to track down and watch. I'm all for H.P. Lovecraft, and I'm all for monsters made of body parts stitched together, so this sounds like my kind of movie.

Yes, Lovecraft's vision is hard to bring to the screen, but this seems to be one of the better attempts. And I think I know why. While I have not seen the film, I have read the story upon which it is based, and this film does seem to be a fairly faithful adaptation of that story.

If one is also interested in another one of the better films based upon the stories of Lovecraft, one might check out the film "Dagon," which is based upon two of Lovecraft's stories.

Dagon was another great movie.  I loved how it was put together.

It almost seemed too real. Buggedout

I saw Dagon in the theatre and Stuart Gordon was there doing a Q and A. It was a dark rainy day too. I'm a big fan of Gordon's Lovecraft movies: Re-Animator, From Beyond, Dagon. Need to check this one out.

I own this movie! This is the last directing gig to date (and apparently the last writing gig, too... MAJOR suckage) for Dan O'Bannon, writer and director of Return of the living Dead, writer of Dark Star, Alien, Blue Thunder, and one of the steering committee for the halfway decent/halfway nauseating Total Recall. Dan clearly has a feel for the material. Despite its made-for-TV look, and rather cheesy special effects, it is very well written and very well done. I agree this is one of the better Lovecraft adaptations around, and I highly recommend it.

Great flick. I saw this (and own it) on VHS many years ago and for years the Crypt scenes gave me nightmares.

The movie still holds up but some of the dialog was fairly silly and I thought hard to take seriously. Nevertheless, it's worth owning. Too bad there isn't anything really special about owning the DVD (no special features).

Yeah this one wasn't that bad. I actually got creeped out a little when the lights got turned off in the cellar.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
