Films Big Dumb List

This is the "big, dumb list" of "Lovecraftian" movies that Yronimos Whateley is in the process of cataloguing in the Wiki. It's "big", and it's "dumb" because if Yronimos were smart, he'd never have started undertaking such a mad task.

The list was generated largely by mining several lists of suggestions made to Cthulhu-themed internet discussion boards in response to questions about "Lovecraftian" films. It's also (currently) unorganized - it's mostly listed roughly in the order that Yronimos felt like adding them to the catalogue in, without regard to date, alphabetical order, or any other system of sorting. A much-needed index is on the "to do" list, but not yet started.

Want to Help?

Want to help, but do not feel like creating your own entry from scratch? See the "Catalogued" section below for films that interest you - most catalogued films in that section could really use the following added to their pages:

  • REVIEWS: Graham has helped a great deal with adding reviews to film pages, but many film pages could probably still use some additional review links...
    • REVIEWS, EXISTING: Links to reviews needed! Especially reviews from a "Lovecraftian" angle; films reviewed in "Lovecraft film marathons" or on Lovecraft-themed sites are ideal; reviews from general horror-themed sites are OK, reviews written by YSDC members (maybe by YOU) are awesome!
    • REVIEWS, NEW: If you've never seen a film before and want to track it down and watch it, feel free to blog your own review of the film, and add a link to your review on the film's page. (YSDC has some great reviewers, I just haven't been able to concentrate on tracking their reviews down!)
  • SYNOPSES: Very few of these film pages include detailed plot synopses. Feel free to expand the Synopsis section of your favorite film with an original, more detailed play-by-play of the plot.
  • ASSOCIATED MYTHOS ELEMENTS: Whenever possible, in this section I try to mention "Lovecraftian" elements that appear in the film, like tomes, creatures, deities, etc. Sometimes, I forget some elements and miss others for films I have seen, or I just don't know what elements appear in films I've never seen. In rare cases, films will include tomes, creatures, gods, etc. that I don't recognize. If you notice anything missing from the "Associated Mythos Elements" section, feel free to add them.
  • KEEPER NOTES: If you've used a film as a basis for an RPG scenario before, feel free to add suggestions and advice to the "Keeper Notes" suggestion describing ways the film can be adapted to adventures for Call of Cthulhu, Delta Green, etc. I hope to include such notes for every film eventually, but they tend to be time-consuming to write from scratch.

The following might also be fixed on older pages or in future projects:

  • add indexes of films:
    • a master index with better organization than the "big dumb film list" (I wish I'd picked a better name for that page in retrospect!)
    • movie suggestion guides by categories ("I'm in the mood for... Films with tentacles in them!" See: Category:Film:TentacleMonster")
  • improve categorization -
    • I've added a number of film categories since the Lovecraftian film project began, and earlier film pages do not yet include them
    • new categories for films by decade: 1950s, ..., 1990s; Contemporary; and, a single category for anything from before the 1950s (there wouldn't be very many)
    • alternatively, categories for films by style/sub-genre/technical: Found Footage, 1980s Horror, Made-for-TV, 1950s Paranoia, Weird Western, Weird World War (which seems to be a subset of the so-called "eldritch location" films)...
    • there should perhaps be a category for films with downer endings - it has just sunk in that I've been told that is a criteria used by some people for considering a film "Lovecraftian", and I didn't consciously notice!
    • in retrospect, "eldritch location" does not precisely capture the essence of the sort of film I was trying to describe - when I think of a better name for this category, it'll take some work to re-categorize the numerous surreal, nightmarish films categorized there
  • add setting details
  • add TVTropes and IMDB links
  • all films could probably use an improved rundown on associated Lovecraftian elements included in the film (especially RPG setting, creatures, tomes, etc.)
  • add "Keeper Notes" with suggested RPG story-starters based on the film

Film Catagories:

  • Template and Categories for Films and reviews, plus a "Lovecraftian" rating system:
    • Created Tentacle Ratings system
    • Category:Film:General
    • Category:Film:Franchise
    • Category:Film:Film
    • Category:Film:Short
    • Category:Film:Series_or_Serial
    • Numerous other categories by type of "Lovecraftian" content, style, etc. (see template)

Backlog: Unfiltered Animations and Shorts

I haven't gone through these yet at all; they seem to be a mix of short-subject films, anthologies, cartoons (which range from episodes imitating Lovecraft's fiction, to episodes that might have a Lovecraft reference as a punch-line somewhere), British made-for-tv miniseries, and TV movies that might (or might not) have a minimal, tangential relation to "Lovecraftian" horror:

TV movies that are apparently not Lovecraftian, but perhaps useful - moved to Backlog for future consideration:

  • Fatal Images (1989 film) A serial killer's spirit haunts a camera. (May be more slasher than cosmic horror?) Review by Luisito Joaquín González at A SLASH Above... (2 Axes in the Head) (link) Review by Joseph A. Ziemba at Bleeding Skull (link)
  • I, Madman (1989 film) (AKA Hardcover) (trailer) (Wikipedia) (IMDb) Review by Keith Bailey at The Unknown Movies (link) Review by Graeme Clark at The Spinning Image (6/10 Stars) (link) Review by Roger Ebert at RogerEbertdotcom (3 Stars) (link) Review by Francisco Gonzalez at Film Connoisseur (3/5) (link) Review by Richard Scheib at The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review (3/5 Stars) (link) Review by Charles Tatum at Charles Tatum's Review Archive (2/5 Stars) (link)
  • Daughter of the Mind (1969 film)
  • Vampire (1979 film) (full movie) (IMDb) The only review is by Richard Scheib (2/5 Stars) (link) - "...Vampire’s problem – and almost certainly one of the reasons that it failed to go to series – it stays with the tried and true, never does anything clever to show the vampire coming up against the modern day as The Night Stalker did."

I couldn't really figure out the "Lovecraftian" angle (or couldn't figure out how best to justify it) on the following films that I've seen suggested as "Lovecraftian", placed in backlog for future reexamination, or in a couple cases noted to myself:

  • Phase IV (1974 film) IMDB: (link) - that delightfully pretentious 1970s film about super-intelligent ants; it kind of straddles the line between a killer-animal movie and an "eldritch location" psychedelic/surreal horror/sci-fi....
  • The Yesterday Machine (1963 film) (Full movie) (Wikipedia) (IMDb) Review by Ken Begg at Jabootu (link) Review by Nathan Decker at Million Monkey Theater (link) Review by David Sindelar at Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings (link) Review by Richard Scheib at The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review (1/5 Stars (link)
  • Ghost Brigade (1993 film) (Trailer) (IMDb) Review by Christianne Benedict at Krell Laboratories (link), Review by René S. Garcia, Jr. at Working Author (link), Review by Charles Tatum at Charles Tatum's Review Archive (2/5 Stars) (link) - "Ghost Brigade is not a terrible film, it is actually entertaining, but it plays like what it is: a chopped up attempt to make some money on the straight to video market, at the sacrifice of the audience's seeming lack of intelligence. I really hate when Hollywood decides to dumb something down for me, assuming I would not "get it" otherwise."
  • Road Train (2010 film) (Trailer) (IMDb) Review by Dave Becker at the 2,500 Movies Challenge (Link) Joseph Howell at Talk of Horrors (0.5/10) (Link) Matthew Lee at ScreenAncarchy (Link) Andrew Pragsam at The Spinning Image (4/10 Stars) (Link) Jeff Ritchie at Scary Minds (4/10 Stars) (Link) Brandon Sites at Brandon C. Sites: Critic of Modern Day Horror (2/4 Stars) (Link) TheHrunting at From Black to Red (3/10) (Link) - "The biggest mistake the filmmakers did here was to leave enough down time between significant scenarios happening to be able to pull it apart as a viewer with nothing else to do in the meantime."
  • Mill of the Stone Women (1960 film) - (Trailer) (IMDb) Review by Christianne Benedict at Krell Laboratories (link) Review by Richard Scheib at The Science Fiction Horror and Fantasy Film Review (2.5/5 Stars) (link) Review by Dave Sindelar at Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings (link)
  • Shock Waves (1977 film)
  • Dead Men Walk (1943 film) (Full movie) (Wikipedia) (IMDb) Review/Discussion at the Orphaned Entertainment Podcast (link) Review at A Side Order of Ninjas (link) Review by Brett H. at Oh The Horror! (link) Review by Scott Ashlin at 1000 Mispent Hours and Counting (3/5 Stars) (link) Review by Brian Schuck at Films From Beyond the Time Barrier (link) Review by Dave Sindelar at Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings (link)
  • Mesa of Lost Women (1953 film) A mad scientist named Arana is creating giant spiders and dwarfs in his lab on Zarpa Mesa in Mexico. He wants to create a master race of superwomen by injecting his female subjects with spider venom.

  • House of Bones (2010 film) ?
  • Cronos (1993 film) - a vampire thing by Guillermo del Toro, with an alchemical tome, a weird rejuvenating artefact, and not much else "Lovecraftian"
  • Mulholland Drive (1996 film) ?
  • Lost Highway (1997 film) ?
  • Blue Velvet (1986 film) ?
  • Seven Footsteps to Satan (1929 Film) - based on a story by A. Merritt
  • Moon (2009 film) ?
  • The Skeleton Key (2005 film) ?
  • 8mm (1999 film) ?
  • Silent Hill (2006 franchise) ?
  • The Faculty (1998 film) ? (There are tentacles, I guess....)
  • Virus (1999 film) ?
  • The Prestige (2006 film) ?
  • Donnie Darko (2001 film) ?
  • Legend of Hell House (1973 film) ? (There is a group of supernatural investigators; aside from similarities to the scenario "The Haunting", this isn't Lovecraftian at all.)
  • Reign of Fire (2002 film) ? (I've not seen this; it's about dragons, right?)
  • Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001 film) ? (I've not seen this; it's about werewolves, right?)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean (2003 franchise) ? (Davy Jones has tentacles on his face, and that's about the extent of it, right?)
  • Slither (2006 film) ?
  • Phenomena (1985 film) AKA Creepers ?
  • * The City of Lost Children (1995 film) ?
  • The Last Broadcast (1998 film)
  • Carnivale (2003 series)
  • The Skeptic (2009 film) (?) (haunted house tale, gothic elements)
  • Angel Heart (1987 film) (?)
  • Chemical Wedding (2008 film) ? (about Aleister Crowley)
  • The Host (2006 film) (This looks more like a Korean take on a Kaiju movie than anything Lovecraftian?)
  • Here Comes the Devil (2012 film) There's a brief reference to a legend about something living in the cave that treats human beings like vessels or shells, but not much seems to get made of that....
  • Dunderland (2012 film) ? (apparently aired at an HPL Film Festival, but I can't really identify any Lovecraftian qualities based on the handful of reviews, trailer, IMDB entry, and other scraps I've found)
  • Boardwalk Empire ("not Lovecraftian or even horror in any manner, but can be an excellent 1920's resource.")
  • Lee Martin's The Midnight Hour (2008 series) This is a really, really low-budget rip-off of "Tales from the Crypt", which seems to have absolutely nothing in common with Lovecraft's "Weird fiction" brand of horror.
  • Tales of the Unexpected (1977 series) Aside perhaps for a generic alien invasion plot similar to They Live (1988 film) (better handled through that film's page), this horror/sci-fi/fantasy series' episode synopses seem far too conventional to even suggest anything vaguely Lovecraftian.
  • Insight (1960 series) At a glance, this show looks like a fascinating glimpse into 1960s-1980s Roman Catholic doctrine through the lens of Twilight Zone style fantasy/horror/science-fiction stories, but the series episode descriptions ultimately sound far too optimistic, conventional, topical, and rational to provide much useful fodder for Lovecraft's surreal brand of escapist, weird, atmospheric, uncanny, and ultimately nightmarishly irrational mood pieces.
  • The Hitchhiker (1983 series) AKA Deadly Nightmares in the UK; rather conventional and non-Lovecraftian horror stories about the usual themes of murder, sex, revenge, swindlers and conmen, curses and karmic retribution. (Wikipedia) (IMDb)
  • House Next Door (2005 film) ? Maybe this is something I'll need to actually watch for myself, but I didn't get any sort of connection to Lovecraft's style of horror based on the film's description or reviews.
  • Friday the 13th (1980 franchise) ? (note also that the ninth film includes a blink-and-you-miss it shot of the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis in the background, apparently because it looked cool or possibly as a sight-gag; later there was also a comic that crossed-over Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Evil Dead)
  • Joshua (2007 film) I had this one marked down on an old list of movies to consider for the Lovecraftian film list, but can't quite remember why, and I couldn't really think of a satisfying way to mine it for RPG ideas strong enough to justify including it anyway. For certain, the facts that there is nothing supernatural or speculative/sci-fi to put a finger on, there's no blood and gore, most of the victims get destroyed without dying, the child seems ancient beyond his years and weirdly inhuman with interests in strange music and Egyptology and Nightmare Fuel Colouring Books, and most of the menace of the film comes from things that aren't said and shown rather than things that are resulted in an intriguing "interesting failure with some vague Lovecraftian potential if I read a little more into it than the film actually provides" reaction from me. I can almost picture a Lovecraftian adaptation in there somewhere by way of "Case of Charles Dexter Ward" with only a couple minor additions, though not enough so to justify calling the film even "not very Lovecraftian". I might end up looting a couple ideas from this film anyway - the way the kid took out his parents without actually doing any physical harm to them was chilling and powerful stuff...
  • The Sentinel (1977 film) (not really very Lovecraftian)
  • Shivers (1975 film)
  • Suddenly, Last Summer (1959 film) (Wikipedia) (IMDb) Review by Sanderson Beck at Movie Mirrors (link) Review by Graeme Clark at The Spinning Image (7/10 Stars) (link) Review by Bosley Crowther at The New York Times (link) Review by Dave Sindelar at Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings (link)
  • Psycho (1960 film) (perhaps only indirectly, as Robert Bloch was encouraged to write Mythos fiction by Lovecraft before moving on to write psychological horror and other non-Mythos fiction; the novel contains the subtlest hints of Bloch's background in weird fiction, with Norman Bates' private library stocked with the real-world equivalent of Mythos Tomes, and believing he had supernatural powers....)
  • Dark Signal (2016 film) (Not very Lovecraftian on first viewing, but the time-related plot twist was kind of weird; the mystery plot might be adaptable with some work to a CoC scenario plot)
  • The Vault (2017 film) (trailer) (IMDB) Review by Karina Adelgaard at (The Heaven of Horror) (3/5) - "It’s obvious that The Vault had a lot more potential. The story is a classic horror tale and perfect for a movie. It just seems that an emphasis on weird (and unexplained) sibling drama takes over at most turns." Review by Sonia Cerca at (A Film A Day) (2/5 Stars) - "So you can get how surprised I was when 40 minutes into what I thought was just a mediocre bank heist film, I realised the movie was supposed to be a horror. I think that says a lot about this film ... In spite of that, The Vault still managed to surprise me in a positive way, and I'm not talking about the predictable plot twist I saw coming from miles away. I'm talking about the fact that the director was able to build some solid suspense. And there were a few scares as well." Review by Aimee Cranswick at (Flickering - "The Vault tries to be scary but is just hilarious. It uses every horror trope in the book and does it so obviously I laughed out loud multiple times. I was genuinely sniggering during the final scene it was so blatant. It’s enough to make me feel bad for the actors, who can hardly muster a performance or even seem scared. This along with a totally disjointed story (heist/horror should not be tried again) with characters that are unlikable and dull makes you wonder how they filled 90 minutes." Review by Richard Schieb at the (Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review) (2.5/5 Stars) - "The Vault comes with a novelty premise – thieves conduct a bank robbery but find more than they bargained for when they open a vault housing something supernatural. ... Dan Bush does a commendable job setting the film up and builds a decent head of tension. ... The whole film exists as a build-up to what is in the vault and for the film to taper off into vagueness and lack of answers when it comes to revealing its hand is intensely frustrating." Frank Veenstra at (BobaFett1138) (5/10) - "The story actually is great. It is not only original, it is also solid, filled with plenty of tension and mystery and just features an overall solid concept. The problem is with its storytelling." Review by Martyn Wakefield at (BloodGutsUKHorror) (3/5) - "While the film opens as a bank heist movie, it closes as a science fiction blend of horror and time loops."

  • The Hatred (2017 film) (I don't remember much about this one, I think I slept through it, and the little bit I do remember, I don't have a good impression of; the trailer was the best part. What I remember involved a cursed object hidden in the walls of an immigrant family's house, resulting in a bland and unimaginative "Evil Dead" rip-off.)

There is a looming sense of absurdist humour that is often disorientating in the obliqueness of its delivery."

  • Misc. Fantasy movies - perhaps suitable for Dreamlands content?
    • The Extraordinary Adventures of Saturnino Farandola (1913 film) - A surreal, plotless, crazy adventure through the world featuring Saturnino Farandola: orphaned by a shipwreck, raised by apes and destined to travel the globe in search of excitement, our hero Saturnino squares up to wild beasts, cannibals, mad pirates, insane naturalists, murderous Mandarins, gigantic sea monsters, a hot air balloon war, and the villainous schemes of an evil Phineas Fogg in this demented pastiche of the works of Jules Verne....

For a start, even though this is supposed to be set during World War Two, there are so many anachronisms that the action flits around from the nineteenth century to about, well, 1982..."

Inside the city however, modern Jeeps and Russian helicopters sit alongside vehicles and costumes from the 1930s, while out in the wasteland people live amid ruins and use horseback technology. The evil general's troops wear the uniforms of World War II German infantry, the leaders of the mythical kingdom are Asian..." Graham - Could give a glimpse into what the Dreamlands look like in the early 20th C...
    • League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003 film) I don't know yet quite what to do with these sorts of modern "Steampunk"/"Gothic" adventure/monster-mash movies yet (see also "Penny Dreadful", the "Hellboy" movies, "The Mummy" franchises, some of the modern wolf-man and Dracula reboots, etc.), but they don't typically seem particularly "Lovecraftian" at first, second, or third glance, though they do sometimes turn up on lists of Lovecraftian content; someone might be able to pull some Dreamlands content out of this sort of thing....

Perhaps a page for some Harryhausen adventures, and a handful of other sword-and-sandal style things (pages for some of these already exist)?
