The Loft brings you some chilling cinema based on the work of H.P. Lovecraft tonight with a double feature of Whisperer in the Darkness and The Call of Cthulhu. Both movies were created by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society.
Nicely paced and decently acted — there’s no question that the more naturalistic demands of the talkie pose some challenges—“Whisperer in Darkness” has a chiller-diller conclusion and some moments of real terror. (Along with its not especially terrifying, but potentially delicious, mind-reading seafood villains from space.)
