The film is a faithful rendition of H.P. Lovecraft's short story. The unexpected in this is that we are dealing with a silent cinema. Difficult task nowadays but not impossible.

The movie is great the glorious silent film reminiscent of the 1920s. Old-fashioned way of filming, nice sets that are quite primitive compared to our era but this way make the film differs and passed as a 1920s cinema, excellent photography, dark atmosphere. Something I did not expect is the actresses of today can support so well the silent cinema. Also I was sold with the makeup that had become actors giving them an eerie, frightening character.

Horror Trivia

The book which reads the nephew in the scene where he dies his uncle has actually been issued. Is "The Story of Atlantis the Lost Lemuria &" by W. Scott-Elliott (1894).

Although I'm no fan of Lovecraft's stories, this one really got me. I think it was well in all areas. Also important for a silent film is the soundtrack, which in this case was highly successful. Within 45 minutes we have a fully integrated and knit story. Without verbiage and unseemly effect gives us everything that is intended to give. Leaves you with a feeling that you are in a very primitive era.

I love good cinema in all its kinds. But horror movies are my favorite. Nothing compares to a good horror movie. So I consider it my duty to inform you, horror fans for classical and not just horror movies. To remember the old and young people learn.
