HPLHS Strikes Again: The Whisperer in Darkness Trailer

Holy crap! Did we finally find a good Lovecraft movie?
Holy crap! Did we finally find a good Lovecraft movie?

While Lovecraft fans like me endure the excruciating wait for Del Toro’s “At the Mountains of Madness”, pickings are notoriously slim for any other tentacle-y goodness. Ordinarily, when Hollywood gets its grubby little mitts on any of Lovecraft’s work, the only resemblance it might bear to the original is the title. Sometimes, not even that. Lovecraft is not an easy author to adapt. It’s a job best left to professionals and scholars… like the people of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society.

That ‘Insidious’ Teaser

Much has been made of the competition between “Saw” and “Paranormal Activity”, but much of that has only been at the box office. Aside from that, the creators of “Saw” (James Wan and Leigh Whannell) and the producers of “Paranormal Activity” (Steven Schneider, Jason Blum along with director Oren Peli) have teamed up for what could be a nice bit of haunted house action called, “Insidious.” Yes, I’m a bit late jumping on the bandwagon but I’ve been waiting to get a look at some of it first. This teaser, courtesy of those fine people at Shock Til You Drop, has certainly piqued my curiosity. Check it out after the jump.

If you’re long past your puberty years, you’re probably tired of the glut of shiny happy vampires that we’ve had for the last few years. Personally, I’m even kind of tired of the other varieties that have popped up lately where we have vampires as fairly normal folks who just happen to drink blood and vampires who are completely alien monsters. More than once I’ve said wouldn’t it be nice to get something that wasn’t any of these? Something new?

Apparently, someone was listening.

"The Valdemar Legacy" is looking for some American distribution love.
"The Valdemar Legacy" is looking for some American distribution love.

After watching a very disappointing first game of the World Series, I wasn’t necessarily looking for something to cheer me up but found it anyway.

The fine folks at Shock Till You Drop are reporting that the Spanish-made, Lovecraft-inspired “Valdemar Legacy” (or more accurately “La Herencia De Valdemar”) is being shopped for US distribution by Imagina International Sales.

‘Tis the season. The Halloween season of course when good little TerrorScribes like me are busy little bees reviewing horror movies, visiting haunted houses, deciding on costumes and just enjoying the general spookiness of the season. As you might have noticed, I’ve cranked out a bunch of reviews in the past week and starting Monday, I’m kicking off a new series: “What Do Horror Fans Want?” I’ve collected a cross-section of authors, bloggers, actors and directors to tell about what they want expect from their genre. I’ll be kicking things off myself with the very humbly titled, “Everything I Know … Continue reading Coming Soon To TerrorScribe.com
