Mountains of Madness
Posted 30 May 2012 - 11:36 AM
dream to make a film out of At the Mountains of Madness. Many of us here were excited about it,
despite Cameron and Cruise being involved, potentially. You may know by now that it died, due to ratings
discussions and the cost of the project. F'n studios.
Anyway, it would have been a big let-down, as they really ruined it with a lot of gore and monsters.
We never SAW the horror in the story, it was implied, in that classic Lovecraft manner...touched upon in places. Sure, it would have had an amazing visual style, but the lurking, unknown creepiness was stepped on and replaced with raging shoggoths and blood flying.
I have a very interesting PDF, and am happy to share it with Lovecraft fans who had high hopes for the film. You will then understand my happiness that the film was never made.
PM me with your e-mail if you'd like a copy.

I find At the Mountains of Madness tedious and plodding. Most of Lovecraft's work gives me the sense he was paid by the word (and maybe he was, when he managed to get paid at all).

Despite it taking a long time to develop, it is told in an interesting voice, that I find works with the character's re-telling of events. Everything is so fast-paced these days, that for me, a bit of tediositudityness ain't so bad....
