    • Loved it! Amazing low budget adaptation. “The Whisperer in Darkness” is another great example of a Lovecraft adaptation done right. But this is only a Top 5 😉

    “The Resurrected” and “the Unnamable” (not to mention the unparalleled campy goodness of “Unnamable 2”) trump ITMOM.

    The Resurrected – watching that back in the 90’s is what got me into reading Lovecraft.

    Good list. I’d also suggest 1963’s THE HAUNTED PALACE, mostly based on The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. Scared the hell out of me at the time (I had never heard of Lovecraft then).
