Yet another very satisfying, respectful and entertaining adaption of one of HP Lovecraft's most accomplished stories by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. The movie embraces the classic sci-fi aesthetic from the 40s and 50s with remarkable results for such a small budgeted flick thanks to a smart script and excellent use of atmosphere and pacing. Some special effects are clunky which helps the movie at times thanks to inspired cinematography but also has some awkward results towards the end on the CGI animated beasts which just doesn't make much sense. Also, the soundtrack is absolutly atrocious and overbearing, distracting the viewer way too much from the narrative and without any emotional resonance.

All in all, a fantastic effort after the already great Call of Cthulhu adaptation by the HPLHS. Bring more of these!

A solid film adaptation of an H. P. Lovecraft horror story. Much truer to the source than most of the Lovecraft inspired films of recent decades and far the better for it. Decent production values, direction, cinematography, and acting. If you enjoy Lovecraft you will definitely enjoy this film.

Filmed like a 1930s horror flick, this one works due to the actors and story, which takes Lovecraft's tale and makes it more grand. The budget is low to the special effects are truly awful.

A wonderful adaptation of a Lovecraft story from the same people who brought us the excellent silent treatment of "The Call of Cthulhu." This time, it's the Mi-Go, the fungi from Yuggoth, out to conquer the world, and it's up to Miskatonic University Professor of Folklore Albert Wilmarth to stop them... if he can! What's particularly strong about this film is that it infuses the atmospheric horror of Lovecraft with the fun that those involved obviously had making it. Shot in black and white and bringing together both modern sensibilities and the feel of a 1950's B-flick, The Whisperer in Darkness is a real joy to watch, and it works whether or not you're familiar with Lovecraft's work. Even if you know the original short story upon which this is based, this one will suck you in and keep you in suspenseful entertainment every minute. It's a do-not-miss for fans of all things Lovecraftian!

"The Whisperer in Darkness" is a short story by H. P. Lovecraft. Written February-September 1930, it was first published in Weird Tales, August 1931.[1] Similar to "The Colour Out of Space" (1927), it is a blend of horror and science fiction. Although it makes numerous references to the Cthulhu Mythos, the story is not a central part of the mythos, but reflects a shift in Lovecraft's writing at this time towards science fiction. The story also introduces the Mi-Go, an extraterrestrial race of fungoid creatures.

The Whisperer in Darkness was nominated at Oaxaca Film Fest.

Continuing the HLPHS agenda, the movie is a revisionist piece that mixes 1930's film-making style with some stunning FX that bring to life the creepy story of the Mi-Gos. It's an overall solid feature, though some parts of the script are not as solid.

While its kitschy and goofy on the technical level, that's the way it's actually supposed to be. The Whisperer in Darkness proves to be a visionary attempt at brining back the good-old creepy black-and-white horror tales from the 30's and 40's. A very proper adaptation of the haunting tale by HP Lovercraft. It's scary in its very uncanny way, and mysterious with its sci-fi based script. The mythological creates are invading the peaceful mainlands and the only person able to stop them is a brave folklorist on the search for the horrible truth. An old-fashioned tale of the most unearthly kind. It's even better when watched in an old, cramped cinema.

Love the 40's B&W style in the trailer.

Just watched this... yeah some of the effects were goofy and in places the acting and editing could have been better, but overall it was a pretty good movie!

This is the most accurate Lovecraftian film i ever seen.
The first thing you notice is the acting that is simply excellent, the characters are deep, convincing and well executed.
Tha atmosphere, the style. Just perfect.

Not only it is the best Lovecraftian movie, but is one of the best movie i've seen in a while.

A very fine Lovecraft-adaptation by the folks from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society, who produced 'the modern silent masterpiece' THE CALL OF CTHULHU (2005). This time with sound, but still in black and white, it's like a long-lost horror feature from the 40s. Beautifully directed & it was mostly dialog driven but the finale comes with an action-packed surprise significantly altered from the original source but pretty entertaining. Recommended.
June 6, 2011
Effective homage to 30's horror films with a decided Lovecraftian bent. Excellent cinematography and reliable acting are enhanced by evocative special effects and sets. A bit talky and drawn out at the beginning, with the real action (like a 30's movie) starting half way through the movie.
