i love the cast, always love watching julianne moore and fred ward and the gremilns were the best part of this film but that's the problem, they're only in it for like 1 minute. this is a really boring film with great directing, style, acting, good substance, and good atmosphere. i didin't know it was based off of a lovecraft story though? i don't remember seeing based off of the lovecraft story in the credits. are you sure it's based off a lovecraft story?
I don't think it was based on a Lovecraft story, just was Lovecraft inspired. Ward's character was named Harry Phillip Lovecraft, and the Necronomicon and Old Ones are Lovecraft literary creations.
