mcreadyblue: Is anyone else bored with crow funding of projects?
stonelotus: it already has been adapted for the big screen.
Lando Lincoln: Your OTHER left.

Pants full of macaroni!!: real_headhoncho: [ecx.images-amazon.com image 500x437]I'm guessing subby has already been driven mad.
maxx2112: Lando Lincoln: Your OTHER left.I just assumed subby is on the other side of my monitor.
Stone Meadow: Well played, Subby...well played!/either that or you're an idiot
varnigus: Stone Meadow: Well played, Subby...well played!/either that or you're an idiotOr subby was just stating it from subby's point of view
SafetyThird: I found a few dvds at the library that were amateur filmmakers attempts at Lovecraft's works. They were mostly in foreign languages and the production budgets scrounged from beneath couch cushions. It was interesting to see their visions of the stories compared to the ones I have in my mind.Lovecraft's creepy style will be really hard to pull off in a visual format. I wish them the best but experience has shown me I should expect the worst.
socodog: Read it in one sitting. Was not impressed by Lovecraft's style. The book read like a crappy D&D monster manual.

kungfu jesus with a side of lime: I like the idea of making it animated. the problem with HP stories is that so much of the good stuff gets created by the reader as he reads. It is in the thoughts and awareness of the reader that the horror and scares come from. If you do a ine for line adaptaion it would be ok and may even be good I would be willing to bet though that even the best adaptation would somehow have that magic spark lacking
MugzyBrown: I don't get kickstarter.. I mean I do, but If I'm going to pay for your project,I should get some equity instead.Sharktanker
Flappyhead: I'd much rather see an animated version of "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath".
clambam: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0522454/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1Personally I'd like to see a well-done rendition of "The rats in the Wall."
Snapper Carr: Hopefully they resist the urge to turn it into an action-horror film. The idea that the Great Old Ones or even their mortal agents can resisted completely betrays the central idea behind the mythos. The best you can hope for is that whatever eldritch horror you awoke returns to it's long sleep before it notices you.Ultimately, of course, They will all wake up and when they do, the human race will die.
Primitive Screwhead: Flappyhead: I'd much rather see an animated version of "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath".Nice.Or an anthology movie with like say The Doom that Came to Sarnath, The Tomb & The Doom that Came to Sarnath.The Shunned House.or some other equally rock'n combination.As for this project, I wish them luck but I'm not to keen on the concept art.If y'all haven't seen it the Call of Cthulhu made by HPLHS was neato bandito.
Snapper Carr: The challenge of adapting it is how do you keep that suspense when the audience can clearly see the narrator's face?
