A fannish blog dedicated to Science Fiction and Fantasy conventions, movies, games, game design, costuming, prop making, blogs, horror, steampunk, RPGs, Tintin, H. P. Lovecraft, Cthulhu, books, videos, and to CoastCon itself.
CoastCon is a SF & F convention that has been held annually in Biloxi, Mississippi each Spring for nearly 40 years.
Chulinos on YouTube presents a new animated film about the Mountains of Madness by H. P. Lovecraft. Although rich with architectural detail, the characters are simple animated figures such as out of a graphic novel. Although it takes a bit of time to get into the swing of things, this video gives you a pretty good view into the enormous panorama of The Mountains of Madness. One note of caution: the film is in Italian only but I think you will understand the storyline. There is a caption function available in English by clicking the CC button.
The real horror movie, starring your favorite shoggoth Tom Cruise, has been put on hold indefinitely. I suspect the movie moguls have been stopped listening to the demon pipers of Hollywood that lull them, and listened to the fans. As much as I would like to see a full-length feature of The Mountains of Madness, I prefer nothing to the horror that Hollywood would have dished up.
Lovecraft may well have based the Old Ones on figures from these 19th century plates by Ernst Haeckel
