The Call of Cthulu (47 min.) Directed by Sean Branney, 2005
The Call of Cthulhu is HP Lovecraft’s most famous story featuring the celebrated monster Cthulhu. The story embodies HPL’s nihilistic world view, his cosmic perspective, and his sense that mankind is doomed by its own insignificance. And it’s a pretty good globe-trotting adventure story.
The Whisperer in Darkness (103 min.) Dir. Sean Branney, 2011
In The Whisperer in Darkness, folklore professor Albert Wilmarth investigateslegends of strange creatures in the most remote hills of Vermont. His inquiry reveals a terrifying glimpse of the truth that lurks behind the legends.
