Earlier today, I posted about the pronunciation of “Cthulhu” (and included a drawing of Cthulhu by Lovecraft himself). My friend, the author W.H. Pugmire, emailed after that and reminded me of the movie Out of Mind: The Stories of H.P. Lovecraft. As he writes, “there is a scene near the beginning when Lovecraft is walking through the woods and experimenting with his own pronunciation. It’s a wonderful scene!”
Indeed it is, and so is the movie. I can’t imagine any Lovecraft fan not enjoying it. Actor Christopher Heyerdahl does a fabulous job depicting the old gent.
Watch the movie below. Enjoy!
