Must have Witch Hunt (1994) in amongst your old VHS tapes also  :)

Detective Philip Lovecraft lives in Los Angeles in the 1950s when an ambitious Senator is holding hearings, on Magic. Magic is the new influence in Tinsel Town. Lovecraft is unique in that he is the only one who refuses to use magic in his work. Shortly after he is hired, he finds his client, Kim Hudson, accused of the murder of her husband, a film executive. Philip uses the tallents of a local witch, Kropotkin, to explain what is happening only to see her accused of the murder and sentenced to be burnt at the stake.

AND!!! It has Dennis Hopper!

He could probably take the worst script in existence and turn it into cult classic masterpiece. Solo. I have yet to see him not be utterly brilliant in any role he's ever played.

^ +1 on Dennis Hopper. His masterpiece was Riders on the Storm - a cult classic if there ever was one. :Thmbsup:

@4wd - no. I don't have Witch Hunt unfortunately - although I do remember seeing it.


@Wraith - you didn't hear it from me, but there are at least two uploads of the full movie currently on YouTube if you want to watch it.

nosh:
Predestination - which has the most convoluted temporal paradox I've ever seen in a movie.

I really enjoyed it! Solid performances too... I've always liked Hawke and Sarah Snook was adorable! :-*

Out of Mind: The Stories of H.P. Lovecraft.

A nicely done hour long short that you may first think is going to be a documentary. Can that really be actual footage of an old interview with H.P. shot back in the 20s??? (Nope! But you'd sure think it might be for a half second or two. ;D)



But Out of Mind soon morphs into a very nicely done "dream within a dream" short story.

Christopher Heyerdahl is absolutely brilliant as Lovecraft. He's got the look and hits all the right notes. Even gets the old (and now mostly extinct) Rhode Island accent spot on.

Out of Mind casts an entertaining eye on the work of American writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), one of the early 20th century's masters of gothic-horror literature. The film offers an encounter with Lovecraft and enters into his world. Engaging in a kind of game around the writer, the film playfully winks at some of the themes characteristic of his work: the occult, cursed books, monstrous creatures. Out of Mind draws its inspiration from Lovecraft's personal correspondence and many of his stories, carrying the viewer through a labyrinth "beyond the wall of sleep."

Includes some marvellous and utterly cheesy special effects! No true Lovecraft fan could ever ask for more than that. Non-fans will probably miss a lot since this one is definitely geared for Lovecraft's many admirers. If you're one of them, highly recommended.
