Longtime readers of this website will remember that my favorite Lovecraft story is The Night Ocean, by H.P. Lovecraft and R.H. Barlow. Well, I’m happy to report that director Nic Wassell is adapting the story into a short film titled The Distant Sea.
The Night Ocean is a moody, atmospheric tale. Consider this passage:
Vast and lonely is the ocean, and even as all things came from it, so shall they return thereto. In the shrouded depths of time none shall reign upon the earth, nor shall any motion be, save in the eternal waters… Then all shall be dark, for at last even the white moon on the distant waves shall wink out. Nothing shall be left, neither above nor below the sombre waters. And until that last millennium, and beyond the perishing of all other things, the sea will thunder and toss throughout the dismal night.
