Older Gods (2023) ★★

Older Gods

Some refer to this as Lovecraftian, but it’s very loosely and generally based on Lovecraft’s concepts of sleeping gods and cosmic horror. Low budget film with a likeable lead. Some stilted long-winded dialogue scenes which take up far too much time from this shorter length film.

I would love for a film to capture a greater portion of the dread Lovecraft generated in his fiction, but, to date, that film does not exist. In the Mouth of Madness was my favorite to be based on Lovecraft, but hopefully the future will spawn something truly Lovecraft-worthy.
