  • Summary: Adapted from a story by H.P. Lovecraft. A Seattle history professor, drawn back to his estranged family on the Oregon coast to execute his late mother's estate, is reacquainted with his best friend from childhood, with whom he has a long-awaited tryst. Caught in an accelerating series of events, he discovers aspects of his father's New Age cult which take on a dangerous and apocalyptic significance. (Regent Releasing) Expand

    The film is creepy, I'll give it that, but it also has that smalltown, dramatic bend.

    Cthulhu isn't awful, but it isn't particularly compelling either.

    Cthulhu (kuh-THOO-loo) shows that you can't go home again. Seriously: Don't ever go home -- you'll be sorry.

    The acting is so emotionally unhinged and erratic it borders on camp, diluting any suspense.

    Stuart Gordon adapted the story more conventionally in 2001's "Dagon," and it remains the better bet for Lovecraft lovers.
  6. This shambling mess -- offers nothing but a lesson in how not to make a movie.
