A masterpiece. And not just because it stars Nicholas Cage, our continued hero, but also thanks to how it was inspired by one of the most literary and scientifically analysed science fiction stories that was written in 1927 by, would you believe, H. P. Lovecraft. Read it at the edges of the infinite Internet and hear the whisper of the old Ammi: "It all started with a meteorite. Before that time there had been no wild legends at all since the witch trials, and even then these western woods were not feared half so much as the small island in the Miskatonic where the Devil held court beside a curious stone altar older than the Indians". Behind the lens is legendary filmmaker, Richard Stanley, who seemed to disappear of the face of the earth since he was fired by producers from the island of Dr. Moreau.
