The people who say this isn't based on Lovecraft or the Cthulhu mythosare way off base, and they miss the point of this romp. Without H.P.Lovecraft's writing, this movie wouldn't exist. It isn't meant to be a"Lovecraft movie" or to be taken seriously. It's precisely what itswriter and co-star intended it to be, a cinematic comic book and atribute to Lovecraft as the father of modern horror and the progenitorof much of what we know as horror comics, both serious and humorous.The performers are all at least adequate, and the three leads arecharming, portraying Regular Guys and a stereotyped comic book nerdwith tongues firmly in cheek. It's obvious everyone who had anything todo with The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu had a ball, and so willyou, unless you have no sense of fun at all.

This isn't a perfect movie, at places the acting and writing are a bitweak, but it's obvious that most of these people aren't hardened actorsand that most of their effects are on a budget, and with that in mind,it's a damn good presentation.
It's not a movie for hardcore Lovecraft fans who'll cry if someone getstheir mythos a bit wrong, as the movie(which largely loyal to theconcept) isn't particularly about madness and does take its chance tohave a bit of fun with the silliness inherent in just about any horrorsituation.
The start's a bit stuttering and not ideal, but by the end of the movieI was genuinely in love with it.
Ultimately, if you approach this movie without expecting a big-budgetHollywood execution, but instead a competent indie/student movie, youwon't be disappointed.
OK, first off, if you're not into Lovecraft or the Cthulhu Mythos, youwon't get all of the references and jokes, but that's not to say youwon't have fun with this movie. Underneath its rough exterior lies afilm with plenty of wit and charm, and a "deep" (pun intended) love ofall things Lovecraft.
The delivery, as said, is a bit rough, but after only a short period Ifound myself easily forgiving any of the film's minor shortcomings. Noexpensive, top-of-the-line special effects, an excess of foul languagethat probably should have been scaled (ha!) back a bit, and a couple ofperformances that weren't anything said performers would want to put ontheir demo reel (read: stiff).
Still, those things aside, the story is fun and silly, and maintains anice balance between the humor and drama, avoiding any awkward orjarring transitional moments between scenes (if nothing else could besaid, at least take note of that element, which I found refreshing, asI've seen quite a few "blockbusters" of late that failed at it, unableto decide whether they're action or comedy vehicles).
A somewhat imperfect analogy would be to reference the TV series"Chuck." Take any old Lovecraftian Hammer film and drop Chuck & Morgandown in the middle of it as the protagonists and you've got a good ideaof what I believe this movie was intended to be. I wouldn't go so faras to say it completely succeeded, but in the end I think it workedwell enough to make the movie enjoyable.
Ultimately it's a light-hearted Cthulhu Mythos comic book on film, withnods to geeks, gamers and Lovecraft fans everywhere. Will itnecessarily be everyone's cup of tea? Nah. What movie is? But if you'rein the target audience, and can go into it with a smile on your faceand no Cameronesque expectations, there's a good chance you'll have agood time and even find yourself later talking about it with friendsover your Mt. Dew and Funyuns as you prepare to toss the percentilesand hope your character doesn't go insane.
