…but don’t say I didn’t warn you. My friend Rick Lai sent the following email to some of us in the “New Lovecraft eZine Circle” (I just made that up!):
I have witnessed the madness out of Hollywood! For years I thought that there was only one lousy adaptation of THE DUNWICH HORROR starring Dean Stockwell! Now I know the horrible truth! That film has a monstrous twin made in 2009! It looks even less like Lovecraft’s story than the earlier version! Stockwell is now Armitage rather than Wilbur Whateley! Wilbur is now Jeffrey Coombs! Why couldn’t he have just be content to be the perfect Herbert West! Dunwich has been relocated to Louisiana! Olaus Worminus is still alive in the bayou! Page 751 of the Necronomicon only exists in dreams! Armitage shoots mystical rays out of his fingertips like Marvel’s Dr Strange! And Professor Morgan is a gorgeous woman who dresses like Emma Peel!
