As much as I adore Re-Animator... the reasons do not connect with Lovecraft. My answer us bratty- last year an agent sent me the script for AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS by Guillermo Del Toro & Matthew Robbins, and I want that made. Dammit. (Although it looks like it'll be a go again, so woo hoo.)

3) From Beyond
4) Necromonicon ( sorry dont hate me I saw the premier years ago and it has special meaning).

Dagon is possibly my favorite, with The Haunted Palace being a close second. l like the two films from the HPLHS, but Whisperer got a little off track towards the end and l felt the overall story wasn't entirely there. Would love to see these guys do something with The Shadow Out of Time.

Alien and John Carpenter's The Thing are still my favorite "Lovecraftian" films, however, and when it comes to fear of the unknown and cosmic dread on screen, these two films will be hard to surpass.

I like Dagon a lot, but it suffers from some truly HORRIBLE CG. It's like they weren't even trying. This is one that really could've benefited from a higher budget. Just a bit...

Obvious choice, but Re-Animator is my favorite.

My DVD's/Blu's

From Beyond, if they had stopped the film just shy of giving the main character some sort of flesh starved brain worm. Re-animator isnt really all that close to love craft aside from the elixir. I cant wait to see if del torro makes a decent mountains of madness movie
