  1. There has been some very funny adaptations of C'thulhu out there. Even Lovecraft wrote Herbert West Reanimator as a comedy. Charles Stross and the Laundry series are a lot of fun for example and already have a C'thulhu supplement I believe. What about Jason Pargin aka David Wong's "John Dies at the End"? Also " This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously Dude, don't touch it", and "John and Dave and the Temple of X'al'naa'thuthuthu". The first book already has a movie, and "This Book is full of Spiders" may well get one too. (a) Is everyone well aware of this little gem? (b) Are there any other comedic C'thulhu things out there really worth the time that we should be aware of?
  2. I re-watched Hammer Films' 1967 Quartermass and the Pit and was struck by how Lovecraftian the whole thing is. You've got ancestral taint, ancient aliens, mutant humanoids, a history of supernatural occurrences, and a threat to sanity and all humanity. You've got inexplicable phenomena that leave even the smartest man in the room, Bernard Quartermass, speechless.
  3. Medusa Against the Son of Hercules, Embassy Pictures, 1963. Original Italian title something like Perseus Invincible. We've seen Medusa petrify folks in Clash of the Titans, The Gorgon, and assorted other movies. She gets a different take in Medusa Against the Son of Hercules. The film is your standard sword-and-sandal epic, brawny hero opposing evil king and winning heart of nubile princess. However, it features a pretty good lake monster. Medusa herself isn't a snake-haired lady but a 9-foot-tall anemone-like creature with a single baleful yellow eye in the center of its tentacles. It crawls along on crab-like or root-like legs at the base of its stalk. It is capable of grappling with a foe but its main attack is its evil Care Bear Stare, must make eye contact to work. The creature is pretty tough, able to take plenty of sword strokes without serious harm. Its Achilles heel is the eye itself. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056343/?ref_=fn_tt_tt_1
