New “The Whisperer in Darkness” Trailer.

I would like to note for the record that I am so stoked for this:

“This” being the movie adaptation of HP Lovecraft’s The Whisperer In Darkness. The same people who did The Call of Cthulhu a couple of years ago; you may remember that I watched and enjoyed that one a good deal. I expect that I will enjoy this one possibly a bit more, if only because I prefer talkies to silent pictures.

Needing to choose one of two indy Cthulhu films.

So, I have a Lovecraftian quandary.

There’s a little extra cash available right now – enough to pick up a movie. So I went looking for that Tori Spelling Cthulhu that I’ve been thinking of picking up… and found this: The Call of Cthulhu: The Celebrated Story by H.P. Lovecraft

It’s a tough call. I do actually like stupid, which is a draw for the former; but the latter has better reviews, even though it’s apparently a silent film. Does anyone who has seen either or both have an opinion?

Lovecraft is Missing is back. Oh, and the Tori Spelling Cthulhu movie is out.

Although if you already read that webcomic, you probably know that already; and if you don’t read that webcomic, you probably don’t care.

Moving on, the Tori Spelling Cthulhu finally made it to DVD. I still have yet to see it; I get the general impression that the word ‘umm’ is used a lot, for a variety of reasons.

With a name like “Musica Cthuliana,” it has to be squamous.

Hey, Firefox’s spellchecker recognizes ‘squamous.’ They clearly know their target audience.

Anyway, I noticed Musica Cthuliana mostly because they follow me on Twitter – I can’t imagine why – and I finally got around to listening to their stuff. They’re marketing it for people needing horror roleplaying game background music, and they’ve hit it; I might not pick it for Delta Green – at least, not all the time – but it’ll do nicely for your regular Call of Cthulhu, and maybe even some of your darker* White Wolf World of Darkness games.

Anyway, I like what I’m hearing so far.  Check out the free stuff; they’re planning to have a new CD out soon. Presumably they’re also working out how to separate American buyers from their cash at the same time.

*Yes, it can always get darker.
