We may remember, on August 29, a thoughtful and interesting review list of “43 Underrated Films from the Darker Side of Cinema You’ve Probably Never Seen — A Gehenna Post Article” by C.P. Dunphey* via GEHENNAANDHINNOM, his blog on WordPress.  Now five months later comes another feature, this one even more ambitious, the opener of a four-part “Top 100 Films & Television Series You Didn’t Know Were Lovecraftian.”  Or to introduce it in his own words, [a]s the first part of our “Lovecraft in Film” series, we will be exploring 25 films that, while not direct adaptations, are inspired either partially or greatly by Lovecraft’s fiction.  Prepare for madness as we embark into the unknown.  These films are in NO PARTICULAR ORDER.  And beyond which there may not be too much to say:  the degree of influence will sometimes be obvious, sometimes more subtle, the films themselves ranging from the Japanese UZUMAKI (SPIRAL) to THE HAUNTED PALACE, with stops in between for CABIN IN THE WOODS, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, even UNDER THE SKIN in a negative way . . . but Dunphey himself will explain the connections, which may be seen by pressing here.

*Not to mention C.P. Dunphey himself for YEAR’S BEST BODY HORROR 2017 ANTHOLOGY, with my story “Flesh,” as well as much support for my novel-in-stories TOMBS (cf. July 22, et al.).
