The shattered pieces of life will not discourage me.

    I've not seen this one. What a fun way to critique it though! And I thought 50 words was tricky!

    If Jeffrey Combs as the mad Doctor was the only good thing about this film, it would still be amazing! The director, Stuart Gordon, did some other excellent Lovecraft films, though they weren't as purposely comedic. I recommend "Dagon" as well as his Masters of Horror version of "Dreams in the Witch House".

  • Sounds like fun.
