Critic Reviews for The Whisperer In Darkness
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.
The filmmakers cared about every moody shadow, every slightly stodgy performance, and (of course) the dark, disturbing imagination of H.P. Lovecraft.
The pacing is unbearably slow, and scenes languish for long minutes in dialogue and suspense-free padding. Whale would never have been so wasteful.
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.
Audience Reviews for The Whisperer In Darkness
If you are a Lovecraft fan and haven't seen this yet, please slap yourself, then see it as soon as possible. Horror fans won't be let down either. Done in the fashion of an old Universal monster movie with style to spare.
While not as polished or stylized feeling as Call of Cthulhu (I think that may be due to Call of Cthulhu's photography and writing) this film still completely pulls off that great lovecraftian 1930s film vibe. This one has some great science fiction aspects to it as well. If Sean Branney were to put out more films like these I would guarantee my viewer ship. Very captivating and spooky story about horror from beyond the stars.
The same group that made "The Call of Cthulu," a decent adaptation of the HP Lovecraft story of the same name, that nailed the silent style, even of it was a little wordy in the title cards. This time the group faithfully adapts another Lovecraft tale in the style of a 1930s horror film, and the movie is stylish, has some decent acting for a low budget film made just for the love of it, and the effects, while out of place for the style they are trying to emulate, look pretty good. I enjoy their work. I look forward to seeing what they try and do next, because they are two for two now.
