Review: INNSMOUTH

Watching filmmakers adapt the works of H.P. Lovecraft is always a good thing in my book, and with films like RE-ANIMATOR, FROM BEYOND, and even entries¬†that may not be straight from the source but more of an homage (see Carpenter’s IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS), you can tell that Lovecraft’s influence is prevalent and definitely […]
