It has almost nothing to do with Dagon, that's true

My problem with that is the name - not the movie, though.

I don't think Lovecraft was THAT good at crafting stories. I think he was mostly a one-trick-pony - but a VERY good one, and his trick was atmosphere and "mythology". Also, he had a lot of cool twist endings - which is pretty novel considering the age of the short stories. I loved Pickman's Model, for instance

So, in that sense - those are the things I care about.

Dagon isn't great - but in my mind, it's the best Lovecraftian film I've seen - by far.

But to each his own.

Also, the chick in Dagon is hotter!
