HELLBOY

Screens with Lovecraftian Shorts

(2004) dir Guillermo del Toro w/Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, John Hurt, Rupert Evans, Karel Rodin, Jeffrey Tambor, Doug Jones [122 min; 35mm]
We may never see Guillermo del Toro’s cinematic version of Lovecraft’s epic novella At The Mountains of Madness but, with a little squinting, combining today’s co-features together might give us a hint. In HELLBOY, the titular demon-spawn-turned-superhero unwittingly becomes part of a plan to summon the Old Ones back to Earth.

Screens with: Stephen King and George Romero’s “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill” in which a hick encounters a meteorite and is slowly transformed into a vegetal creature. And “Professor Peabody’s Last Lecture” – a comedic piece from Rod Serling’s Night Gallery in which a professor who ridicules the Old Ones (Carl Reiner) gets his comeuppance.
