This hilarious adaptation scores on many levels. It's casting of Jeffery Combs as Dr. West is spot on, and it's comical use of ogre and violence will appeal to many horror fans, but what makes this film so memorable is its production team, what with its precise editing, tight direction, and well written script. A horror classic!
Although not as clean cut as Re-Animator, this Lovecraft adaptation still has some strengths. Slick visuals enhance this creepy tale, but with impressively intense gore and no laughs, it's a hard viewing experience, made all the more difficult with a clunky ending and sub par pacing. A true cult classic nonetheless!
It's stunning production designs galore in this witty comedy from director Wes Anderson. The top notch cast is led by first time actor Tony Revolori, and finishes with a touching performance from F. Murray Abraham. Anderson's finest film to date.
