No, not that movie… Tori Spelling does not appear in this one, for which we may thank the Elder Gods.

Rather, this is a low-budget Australian movie that starts out with the noble intention of adapting a Lovecraft story faithfully… and ends up switching stories in mid-film. To make things worse, they went from one of Lovecraft’s most direct and managable tales to one the budget simply couldn’t handle.

I guess when you’re dealing with the Old Ones, you get used to biting off more than you can chew.
