Based on an H.P. Lovecraft story – this movie comes in as slightly on the cheesy side for me as far as the effects go – and they start early. The story of a man studying death, and of course the way to bring people back from it.

While like I said, the effects aren’t really the best, I do enjoy the story line, it is both amusing and creepy. Of course, being based on an H.P. Lovecraft story what more can you really expect? The way the story works and folds over itself is very well done.

This movie is not one of my favorites, but it’s a good one for a night of classical horror – a three bloody kitties movie, absolutely.
