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

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

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

    Stuart Gordon adapted the story more conventionally in 2001's "Dagon," and it remains the better bet for Lovecraft lovers.

    The acting is so emotionally unhinged and erratic it borders on camp, diluting any suspense.
  6. This shambling mess -- offers nothing but a lesson in how not to make a movie.
