The pacing is unbearably slow, and scenes languish for long minutes in dialogue and suspense-free padding. Whale would never have been so wasteful.

...provides a good reflection of Lovecraft's obsessions while affording contemporary audiences some good old-fashioned midnight movie fun.

Only a playful horror picture, where Call of Cthulhu was actually a great & largely successful experiment; but it still gets to the heart of why Lovecraft works.

The atmospherics are in place, and the filmmakers catch the essence of Lovecraft's expansive horror with efficiency. The film is entertaining without attaining greatness.

The effect doesn't quite come off, mainly because the images are too sharp and the editing and camera work too modern. But the movie is endearing anyway for its fanboy ardor.

"Whisperer in Darkness" has a chiller-diller conclusion and some moments of real terror.
