Classic Horror

Classic Horror: Lovecraft is being made into films and I’m happy scared.

Being a huge Lovecraft fan I am both excited as Hell and nervous as Hell about the adaptation to film of some of the stories.

That’s right some!

It’s old news that The Colour Out of Space is being turned into a film, but recently the news broke that The Colour Out of Space is the first of THREE films. That’s right we’re looking at a trilogy.

The Colour Out of Space, directed by Richard Stanley is due out this year and is set to star Nicolas Cage has been hailed as been an adaptation that is more faithful to the original story.

“We had been hellbent on finding the Lovecraft adaptation that truly captured cosmic dread without the camp”.

Sounds good right?

But while I’m excited, I’m also worried. Lovecraft has a special place in my heart, to the point where I put it permanently on my skin, twice! So the risk that this might end up horribly wrong is a real concern.

How do you feel when your favourite stories get made into films?
