PART ONE: 1950 - 1970

It took a long time for H. P. Lovecraft's work to reach across from New England to Hollywood, almost a quarter of a century, but it did finally find its way onto the big screen. Unfortunately, no film producer has been able to translate sucessfully those elements which are essentially Lovecraft to the celluloid medium.

Will Murray recounts in his September 1991 article in Fangoria Magazine that Lovecraft once came close to the "specter of adaptation." In 1933, when Farnsworth Wright, editor of Weird Tales, purchased the serial rights to Lovecraft's "Dreams in the Witch House," he expressed an interest in adapting the story for radio. Lovecraft replied: "It's not likely that any really finely wrought weird story - where so much depends on mood, and on nuances of description -could be changed to a drama without irreparable cheapening and the loss of all that gave it power."

Some time after that incident, Lovecraft confided in a letter to a friend that: "I shall never permit anything bearing my signature to be banalized and vulgarized into the kind of flat infantile twaddle which passes for 'horror tales' amongst radio and cinema audiences!" Here is the first in a six part series reviewing Hollywood's success.

Director /script: Curtis Harrington; Producer: Aram Katarian; Music David Raksin

Cast: Dennis Hopper (Johnny), Linda Lawson (Mora), Gavin Muir (Murdock), Luana Anders (Girl)


"In Night Tide, Dennis Hopper plays a young sailor named Johnny. He falls in love with a woman named Mora who performs as a mermaid in a cheap boardwalk side show. As Johnny becomes more deeply involved with Mora, he learns that her last two lovers died mysteriously by drowning. In a scene right out of (Shadow Over) Innsmouth, Mora speaks of "being called inexorably by the sea", and of the "inexpicable longings" that the sound of the ocean awakens in her. Although this film isn't based on any particular HPL story, it has a very Lovecraftian feel to it."

SYNOPSIS: On leave in a shore side town, Johnny becomes interested in a young dark haired woman. They meet and he learns that she plays a mermaid in the local carnival. After strange occurrences, Johnny begins to believe that she may actually be a real mermaid that habitually kills during the cycle of the full moon. - IMDB Summary written by {VRSC26B@PRODIGY.COM}

(AIP/Alta Vista) USA/1963. C-85m. 
Also Known As: Edgar Allan Poe's The Haunted Palace (1963) (USA: promotional title)
Haunted Village, The (1963) 

Exec. Producer: James H. Nicholson,  Samuel Z. Arkoff; Producer /Director: Roger Corman;  Script: Charles Beaumont, from material by H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe, Francis Ford Coppola (additional dialogue) (uncredited); DP: Floyd Crosby;  Music: Ronald Stein.

Cast: Vincent Price (Charles Dexter Ward/Joseph Curwen), Debra Paget (Ann Ward), Lon Chaney Jr. (Simon Orne), Frank Maxwell Ian Willet/Dr. Willet), Leo Gordon (Edgar Weeden/Ezra Weeden), Elisha Cook Jr. (Gideon Smith/Micah Smith), John Dierkes  (Benjamin West/Mr. West), Cathie Merchant (Hester Tillinghast), Milton Parsons (Jabez Hutchinson)

While advertised as part of Roger Corman's Edgar Allan Poe series, THE HAUNTED PALACE is actually the first true Lovecraft adaption, written by genre ("Twilight Zone") screenwriter Charles Beaumont from Lovecraft's novella "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward." The title Poe poem is recited at the opening by Vincent Price before the story begins. 

Lee Halliwell of the BBC: "Plodding horror comic, too slow to give opportunities to its stalwart cast." Judith Crist: "For those of ghoulish bent, or lovers of the perfectly awful." (Will Murray suggests that rumor has it that Beaumont was not a Lovecraft fan.)

SYNOPSIS: Charles Dexter Ward travels with his wife to Arkham to inspect a large house he has inherited. It was once owned by his great grandfather Joseph Curwen, a disciple of the devil, who cursed the local villagers as they burned him at the stake. Everyone is hostile to Ward, blaming the curse for the number of mutants in the village. Indeed, Ward's arrival allows Curwen to take over his body and restart his evil ways by revenging himself on the descendants of those who killed him - IMDB Summary written by Jeremy Perkins {jwp@aber.ac.uk}

IMDB User Comments: Larry R. Kinney, Seattle, Wa

Good thriller; Debra Pagent's last movie. Price & Chaney together for the first time.  Good thriller with Vincent Price and Lon Chaney in the same movie for the first and only time. Also Debra Pagent's last movie. Debra by the way is stunningly beautiful in this movie. One of Vincent's best acting roles by playing two different personalities. Plot was a bit thin but the acting made this movie.


USA (Universal) USA/1965. BW-59 minutes. 

Also Known As:
Black Cloak (1965) 

Director: Harvey Hart; Producer: Jack Laird; Script: Barré Lyndon; Music: Lalo Schifrin.

Cast: Leslie Nielsen (Brett Kingsford), Peter Mark Richman (Robert Vandenburg), Judi Meredith (Evelyn Lung), Gilbert Green (Harvey Misbach), Charles Bolender (Nikola), Werner Klemperer (Prof. Malaki), Vaughn Taylor (Dr. Kevin Burdett), Peter Brocco (Chi Zang)


Forerunner of "Kolchak" and "Cast a Deadly Spell."

Described by Maltin as a "near-flawless supernatural thriller" marred by "uneven performances," this atmospheric low budget television pilot for the projected "Black Cloak" series was thought to be too horrific by Universal and was given a theatrical release. Set in the early 1900's, occult detective (Nielsen) is called in by the San Francisco police in connection with a series of weird murders. Leonard Maltin: "Intricate plot and exceptional use of the time period blending with suspense make this a one-of-a-kind movie."

IMDB COMMENT: Marta Dawes (smdawes@home.com) Omaha, Nebraska
Excellent, atmospheric oddity that was before it's time.  Leslie Nielsen is energetic, to say the least, as Bret Kingsford, ostensibly a playboy to everyone he knows in late 19th century San Francisco. But there is more to him than meets the eye. He is an expert on the occult, and secretly helps the local police force when a horrible string of murders are committed. Somehow his soon-to-be-married friend is involved, and Bret suspects someone or something not quite human is at the bottom of it. Leslie dons disguises to meet with the police chief to protect his social status, his victorian mansion has secret doors and passageways, and he plays at being uninterested while mentally taking notes and then disappears, leaving his guest staring at an empty chair. He's somewhat miscast in this film as a playboy, but when he throws off that persona he's fantastic. The foggy atmosphere of San Francisco is used to great effect to enhance the supernatural aura of the film.
     This was a failed pilot produced by Jack Laird, who went on to produce "Night Gallery" a few years later, and was released theatrically at a few theaters. It's impossible to find, but deserves to be seen as the unique production it is. In some ways it is a clear precursor to "Kolchak, the Nightstalker", and also to the wonderful demon-themed TV movie "Spectre".


USA (American-International (US) / Hammer Films (UK))  British/1965. C-80m. 

[Alternate title: Monster of Terror (1965) (UK).  Original Title: THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE WORLD (1965)] 

Exec. Producer: Samuel Z. Arkoff, James H. Nicholson; Director: Daniel Haller;  Produser: Pat Green;  Script: Jerry Sohl from a story by H. P. Lovecraft;  Music: Don Banks.

Cast: Boris Karloff (Nahum Witley), Nick Adams (Stephen Reinhart), Freda Jackson (Letitia Witley), Suzan Farmer (Susan Witley), Terence de Marney (Merwyn), Patrick Magee (Dr. Henderson)

A young man (Nick Adams) visits his fiance's estate to discover that her wheelchair-bound scientist father (Boris Karloff) has discovered a meteorite that emits mutating radiation rays that have turned the plants in his greenhouse to giants. When his own wife falls victim to this mysterious power, the old man takes it upon himself to destroy the glowing object with disastrous results. - IMDB Summary written by Jeremy Lunt {durlinlunt@acadia.net}

Based on Lovecraft's THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE, it was Corman art director Dan Haller's directing debut. Though written by sci-fi writer Sohl, it is a good premise not carried out well, weak compared to the original story. Brash young American scientist Stephen Reinhart (Adams) visits his fiancee Susan Witley (Farmer) and her parents who live in the English village of Arkham (how droll). Her invalid father Nathum (Karloff) is experimenting with a radioactive meteorite in the basement which makes makes plants grow to enourmous heights and humans, including Mrs. Witley (Jackson), mutate horribly. In the end the father turns into a rampaging, day-glo monster. Remarkably similar, and slow paced, as Haller's later "Dunwich Horror" (1970). 

Stephen Jones: "Once again, Lovecraft's themes were discarded in favor of a simple SF plot, although the film does feature some nice special effects and a forbidden book entitled The Cult of the Outer Circle...  It was shot under the better title of THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE WORLD."

IMDB User Comments: Sieg, San Jose, CA
     Lovecraft would spin in his grave.  Yet another terrible version of a Lovecraft story. The plot has been twisted so far out of recognition that I only found out it was supposed to be an adaptation of "Colour out of Space" on a listing of Lovecraft inspired films. Boris Karloff seems at death's door, the effects are laughable, and the overall result is muddled and tedious. One for MST3K to tackle, I'd say!

UK (Warner/Troy-Shneck) UK/1966/1967(us). C(Technicolor)-99 minutes. 

Also Known As: Blood Island (1967)

Director: David Greene;  Producer: Philip Hazelton;  Script: D.B. Ledrow, Nat (Nathaniel) Tanchuck from a story by H.P. Lovecraft & August Derleth;  DP: Ken Hodges; Music: Basil Kirchin.

Cast: Gig Young (Mike Kelton), Carol Lynley (Susannah), Oliver Reed (Ethan), Flora Robson (Aunt Agaths), William Devlin (Zebulon Whateley), Bernard Kay (Tait), Judthi Arthy (Emma), Robert Cawdron (Luther Whateley), Celia Hewitt (Aunt Sarah)


The original director, Ken Russell, walked off the set.  Replacing director Greene was on his first directing assignment.  Of course, Russell went on later to direct Bram Stoker's "Lair of the White Worm."

Forced to return to her childhood home on an island off the New England coast by her new husband (Young), a woman (Lynley) must face the combined horror of local hoods (Reed, et al.) and a monster in the attic of her ancestral home. Unaware of the historic roots of the Lovecraft fragment expanded by would-be "sucessor" August Derleth, Greene changed the script daily, replacing the mystical Deep One with a cliched mad twin sister in the attic. Reed plays his usual 1960's sadistic thug which takes away from the monster upstairs angle. There are some eerie sequences and effective use of subjective camera work.

True horror. Just wanted to say from the first time I saw this as a 12 year old boy I have never forgotten how scary this film was. Have never understood why this movie has gotten little recognition since it surely would scare the hell out of anyone! Even better ,the acting was superb with Oliver Reed, Gig Young, Carol Lynley, etc. It's too bad this movie isn't available on video. I would love to show my nephews this one!

Crimson Cult, The (1970) (USA)
Curse of the Crimson Cult (1968)
Reincarnation, The (1968)
Spirit of the Dead (1968)
Witch House (1968)

Director: Vernon Sewell; Exec. Producer: Tony Tenser; Producer: Louis M. Heyward;  Script: Mervyn Haisman, Henry Lincoln, and Gerry Levy, based on Lovecraft's DREAMS IN THE WITCH HOUSE, Jerry Sohl   (story adaptation);  DP: John Coquillon;  Music: Peter Knight.

Starring: Mark Eden (Robert Manning), Virginia Weatherell (Eve Morley), Christopher Lee (Morley), Boris Karloff (Professor John Marche - Karloff's last appearance), Michael Gough (Elder), Barbara Steele (Lavinia Morley), Rosemarie Reede (Esther)

Robert Manning visits a remote country house seeking his missing brother, and learns of Lavinia Morley, Black Witch of Greymarsh, burned at the stake 300 years ago.  It is set in Arkham.  That may be its Lovecraft connection.  Witchcraft, diabolism, and mystery in an English country house.  Lackluster script has 300 year old Lavinia Marsh (Steele in horrid green skin makeup) burned at the stake as a witch and reincarnated in Christopher Lee. 

Halliwell describes this as "a derivative, muddled scribble of a horror film, making no sense and wasting much time." Stephen Jones says: "An early draft of this script was supposedly based on Lovecraft's story DREAMS IN THE WITCH HOUSE but you'd never know it from the finished film.  Karloff is restricted to a wheelchair (and caught a cold during production which led to his death the following year), but he still manages to steal all the best scenes."

IMDB User Comments: Gothick, Boston, Mass.
Welcome to Our World of Darkness! An underrated slice of late Sixties horror/psychedelia. It was filmed in 1968 and reminded me somewhat of The Dunwich Horror which was made around the same time and similarly attempted to update Lovecraft with setpieces inspired by the drug culture and the Summer of Love. The difference with the Crimson Cult is that it was filmed in England with a stellar cast who can actually act, unlike poor fish-out-of-water Miss Sandra Dee in Dunwich. It is a treat to see Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee trading pleasantries in their scenes. Michael Gough extracts the maximum from his small role as a pitifully unhinged factotum. Barbara Steele exudes a grandly Gothic malevolence in her scenes as Lavinia. She is probably the single most memorable presence in the film and whatever power it possesses is largely thanks to her. (Great costume, too!) The dungeon sequences are probably the best though my favorite moment in the film occurs when the innocent young man asks Karloff's sinister professor "What do you collect?" and with a friendly grin Karloff replies, "Instruments of torture!" Marvelous moment.
     This movie is ridiculously difficult to find. After years of searching I located a bootlegged videotape which is in terrible condition--grainy and the colors which should be vividly over-the-top are quite washed out. Also the print lacks the original score which was quite nifty as I recall from seeing it on American television in the early 70s. There is supposed to be a laser disc version from the early 90s. It would be great if a patron who owns this would do a review of that.

Producer: James H. Nicholson, Samuel Z. Arkoff;  Dir: Daniel Haller; Exec Producer: Roger Corman. Prod: Jack Bohrer;  Script: Curtis Lee Hanson, Henry Rosenbaum, Ronald Silkosky. Based on The Dunwich Horror  DP: Richard C. Glouner. Music: Les Baxter

Cast: Dean Stockwell (Wilbur Whateley), Sandra Dee (Nancy Wagner), Ed Begley (Dr. Henry Armitage), Sam Jaffe (Old Whateley), Lloyd Bochner (Dr. Cory), Joanna Moore Jordan (Lavinia Whateley), Talia Coppola "Shire" (Nurse Cora), Donna Baccala (Elizabeth Hamilton)
Talia Shire .... Nurse Cora (as Talia Coppola), Michael Fox (Dr. Raskin).
Jason Wingreen (Sheriff Harrison)

While originally announced as DUNWICH to be scripted by Ray Russell and starring Peter Fonda, this second Lovecraft/Haller outing has amateur warlock Wilbur Whateley (Stockwell) kidnapping Miskatonic University student (Dee).  Using his stolen copy of the Necronomicon and Dee as a sacrifice, he plans to release the Great Old Ones. Dr. Henry Armitage (Ed Begley in his last role) discovers that Wilbur has a monstrous "twin" brother locked in the attic (shades of THE SHUTTERED ROOM). 

Halliwell: "Bookish horror story, quite well done against a village background."  Maltin: "Often effective, but ending ruins the whole film." Stephen Jones: "Haller's second attempt to film Lovecraft never really achieves the cosmic scope the story needs, but still contains effective scenes including a wild dream sequence, the death of Old Whateley, and a mountain top climax." Will Murray: "Corman also changed the ending, so that the bad guys win. Only he could have made the story more Lovecraftian than even Lovecraft had written it." Director Jean-Paul Ouellette: "While the film seemed a mixed up cross between a beatnik movie and a Hammer film, the creature locked up in the attic room scared the hell out of me when I was a kid."

According to Will Murray, radio show Suspense did an excellent Orson Wellian adaptation of this back in 1945.  But then this is a filmography. Corman was less successful on film.

SYNOPSIS: Dr. Henry Armitage, Sandra Dee and another girl who wasn't in the book visit the library of the Miskatonic University where they are studying, and find a mysterious young man named Wilbur Whateley trying to borrow the Necronomicon (to non-HPL fans : a book containing ancient rites to bring alien gods to our planet), and as it is a public library they let him. Sandra Dee offers to drive the moustachioed warlock back to his home in Dunwich, where he drugs her and makes her stay to be a part in his evil ceremonies. - IMDB Summary written by LtRicardo from a.h.c.


(Tonylyn/Jack H. Harris) USA/1969 C(DeLuxe)-80 minutes 

Also Known As: Beast, The (1970/II)

Director: Jack Woods, Dennis Muren (uncredited). Prod: Jack H. Harris. Script: Mark Thomas MaGee (story), Jack Woods.

Starring: Edward Connell, Barbara Hewitt, Frank Boers Jr. (Frank Bonner), Robin Christopher, Jack Woods, Fritz Lieber

Edward Connell (David Fielding), Barbara Hewitt (Susan Turner), Frank Bonner (Jim Hudson) (as Frank Boers, Jr.), Robin Christopher (Vicki), Jack Woods (Asmodeus), James Phillips (Reporter Sloan), Fritz Leiber Jr. (Dr. Arthur Waterman) (as Fritz Leiber), , Forrest J Ackerman (Voice on tape recorder (uncredited)), Jim Danforth (Extra (uncredited))

A Lovecraft inspired (though not derived) story of four archeology students who confront Satanism - and mutant-like monsters - while searching for vanished professor.  The Lovecraft angle is the Necronomicon-type tome of black magic the kids by an old man in a cave.  The central demon is Asmodeus.  Started in 1967 as an amateur film by writer/director McGee with added sequences directed by actor Woods, it was reworked for theatrical release in 1971 by special effects Oscar winner Dennis Muren. 

Maltin: "Mixing movie cliches with good special effects, this film took ages to complete, and the young cast obviously ages in it." Stephen Jones: "Muren's stop-motion effect (done with David Allen and Jim Danforth) make this low-budget fantasy better than expected.  Horror writer Fritz Lieber featured as a missing professor and Forrest J. Ackerman contributes his voice to a tape recording." 

SYNOPSIS: Four teenagers go on a woods hike and encounter a creepy forest ranger and a crazy old man. The old man is a scientist who had found a mysterious book bound in human skin, the Necronomicon, and when he had read its cryptic symbols it conjured monsters into existence. The teenagers keep the book, and are then persued by monsters, a demonic cult, and the ranger. The ranger turns out to be a red flying devil in human disguise. - IMDB Summary written by io

IMDB COMMENT: Scott Honea (honea1@airmail.net), Corsicana, Tx.
     Frank Bonner's acting debut and we see why...  Equinox...The Beast...Equinox...Whatever you want to call it.... If I'm not mistaken this film was actually a student project that somehow got released. Lord knows how it ended up on video. It's the story of a man who goes crazy after encountering a clay monster. Ok it's not supposed to look like clay, but that's the technology they had back then. The movie basically shows how four friends go on a picnic trip and end up meeting the likes of Asmodius, the perverted park ranger, and Dr. Waterman, the crazed cave dweller. And don't forget the monster...I never really understood how any of it tied together, I guess I was too busy laughing at how bad the whole movie was to really pay attention. If you thrive on really bad film or get your kicks on movies with no redeemable value other than a laugh, rent it.

NOTE: English critic Stephen Jones in his "HAUNTERS IN THE DARK" article for the U.K. FEAR Magazine includes two Italian films (Robert Hampton [Riccard Freda]'s 1959 CALTIKI, THE IMMORTAL MONSTER and Mario Brava's 1963 SCARLET FRIDAY) as Lovecraft influenced films. We haven't been able to find copies and aren't certain of their authenticity within the Lovecraft realm but wanted to put out feelers for anyone who has more information on them than we do.
