Written in 1926, just before the advent of "talking" pictures, The Call Of Cthulhu is one of the most famous and influential tales of H.P. Lovecraft, the father of gothic horror. Now the story is brought richly to life in the style of a classic 1920s silent movie, with a haunting original symphonic score. Using the "Mythoscope" process - a mix of modern and vintage techniques - the filmmakers have worked to create the most authentic and faithful screen adaptation of a Lovecraft story yet attempted.
This silent film brings to life the story of CALL OF CTHULHU in three parts. Beginning in the 1920s, skipping forward to 1908 and then back to the 1870s, the story takes viewers around the globe. When a dying professor gives his great nephew several stories about the mythical monster Cthulhu and the cult surrounding it, the young man begins to hear the Cthulhu's call and becomes obsessed with investigating the legend.
