Movie Info

With a style and tone that wreaks of the late '60s, this cheap-looking adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft story plays like an obvious reference to the battle between the establishment and the counterculture. The film stars Dean Stockwell as Wilbur Whateley, a brooding young man who makes a connection with a pretty librarian named Nancy (a very out-of-place Sandra Dee). Whateley wants to get his hands on the Necronomicon, a diabolical book that he believes will help him to open a doorway to a

Pretty much botched Lovecraft adaptation.

The film should be more interesting for Lovecraft fans than to the general audience.

Audience Reviews for The Dunwich Horror

Lackluster adaptation of Lovecraft's creepy ook-from-another-dimension forte with Stockwell staring intently quite a bit and Dee (!) trying to leave the beach behind her. More interesting to see what the cast was willing to do for a buck, but that don't last long.

I know I saw this movie, but I can't recall it at all, I need to see it again.

Based on a short story written by H.P. Lovecraft. Like a few of the Stephen King Movies, a good writer's movies don't always come out at there best when put on screen. That?s what we have here. Dean Stockwell plays the young and intesive Wilbur, who seems to capture young weak women through his stare. Sandra Dee plays the young Nancy, who Wilbur uses as his doll to Satin. Also in the cast was Talia Coppola (actually Francis Ford?s sister) before she married, became Talia Shire who played Rocky's girlfriend in the Sylvester Stallone?s Movies (Adriiana). All in all its nothing more then the second feature of a Drive Inn Movie, where you get so disgusted you turn on the headlights which hit the screen, everyone blows there horn and you pull away with the speaker still connected to the window. Nothing more then 3 stars here
