    I absolutely love this movie both as a horror fan and Lovecraft fan. Going into it blind, I wasn’t aware of Lovecraft’s influence until Cane says, “the Old Ones can begin their journey back,” which made me very excited. I love how the conclusion wraps itself together by making the movie adaptation the movie that we’re watching as Trent watches the movie itself that we’re also watching. It’s both a simple and cleverly devised ending. I also enjoy how the film’s ideas of mass fictional consumption and belief mixed with the balance of reality and unreality can connect to behavioral majorities of today.

    When you have a tasteless poorly written NY Times best seller get adored by millions or when an online fad gets millions of views you begin to wonder what will become of the future consensus over what we deem as quality or etiquette or the social norm. Working in a theater I get a lot moments of, “One ticket please.” “Okay, to which movie?” “Ehh, I don’t know.” Or, “Can you tell me what this movie is about.” “We have the description for it right here.” “I don’t really feel like reading.” I find that a lot of people tend to sleep walk through their activities and it makes me question their overall awareness. Also, is the blu ray version this bright or is it just this way for the video? The darkness in the movie is pivotal for some scenes. Thanks for the review!
