Lovecraft was a pioneer of "horror fiction" or "weird fiction" but never popular during his lifetime. One of his best known works is "The Call of Cthulhu" published in 1928. I love reading his stories because they don't seem like they were written decades ago.
Is it time for a large production of one of his best works? Or would that ruin the feel? I will just have to bang out a script over the weekend and see where it takes me. I think the best thing to do is to lock myself in the basement with the lights off. A single candle burning in the distance casting curious shadows everywhere would be a nice touch to get the creative juices flowing.
This could be a difficult casting decision.
