12 Days of Cthulhumas: Day 4

On the fourth day of Cthulhumas Tor.com gave to me...
Strange aeons past,
Grim tales told,
Yule horrors spawned,
And Old Ones wrought in effigy.

Requiem of madness #1: Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown
“Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown is a chronicle of the life, work and mind that created these weird tales as told by many of today’s luminaries of dark fantasy including John Carpenter (The Thing), Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Neil Gaiman (Coraline), Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator), Caitlin Kiernan (Daughter of Hounds) and Peter Straub (Ghost Story).”

Requiems of madness #2: The Call of Cthulhu: The Celebrated Story by H.P. Lovecraft
A silent film adaptation of Lovecraft’s most famous story, complete with intertitles in twenty-four languages.

Yay Cthulhumas! I already have the dark radio adventures, so I wasn't going to deprive someone else of those, but I'd love a copy of these!

Perhaps the most merciful thing about this comment is humanity's inability to fully comprehend it.

Those who aren't lucky enough to win this Call of Cthulhu video should really rent it. I saw it from Netflix, and it's really great - rather than being hampered by the limitations of doing a very-low-budget independent film, they used those limitations to make the movie as it might have been made in the '20s, and it worked out really well IMHO.

Having said that, hell yeah I want either of these!
T. Rohl Underbridge
32. Ore'esgaleglauva
Right on. I'm picking these up, regardless, but might as well try to get 'em for free. How does it work? You send us an email and we respond with shipping info? In any case, best Cthulhumas ever!

I'm not a huge mark for Lovecraft, but I've had the chance to read a few of his stories and have enjoyed them. Any chance for some Lovecraftian swag is a chance I'll take. :)
