IMDb rating almost kept me away from this jewel. That would be a big mistake. First hour is mystery/drama with SF premise, and then in last 20 minutes it grows into good horror. In my opinion, few scenes with lousy effects should have been skipped and without them movie would be more convincing, but even this way this is the best Lovecraft adaptation I saw so far and one of the best movies in it's class, primarily because of excellent atmosphere it builds and succeeds to maintain on the level till the very end. This one definitely goes to my collection.
7/10 (8,5/10 within the genre)
