Sorry if you’ve already answered this, but have you seen the HP Lovecraft Historical Society’s adaptation of Whisperer in the Darkness?

Hello! I have, and I like it. Since you’ve asked, I assume you enjoyed it? 
  For those who’ve never seen this adaptation, it’s not what I suppose you might think of as a “conventional” production. Released in 2011, it is in black and white and has more than a bit of the “old time” (pronounced in my head as old-y time-y) feel of older Hollywood films—with some camp here and there for good measure. It’s been a while, but I think there are at least a couple of instances where the Transatlantic accent is used…or maybe I just imagined those to entertain myself even more; I’m not sure.

Either way, it’s fun, and I’d recommend it to those interested in a fairly ‘close to the text’ adaptation/folks exploring the difficulty of presenting the Weird (capital W) on-screen—without overcompensating with added sex/gore or having it look totally ridiculous, etc. I’ve had discussions on here in the past concerning the ‘unfilmable’ quality of much of the Mythos, and this movie is a smart, albeit not-for-everyone, example of how to make it work. Here’s a link to the official page (via the HPLHS). Matt Foyer does a great job as Wilmarth, btw. Daniel Kaemon was memorable, too.

While we’re talking movies, I’ll include resource links for anyone who cares/wants ‘em. Movie lists on Letterboxd: (1) for the Lovecraft “adaptations”/HPL…tangential list, which includes both recs and some terrible (watch at your own risk) films; (2) for the Cosmic Horror/Cosmicism and the Transcendent list, which is all recommendations and good stuff. [I’m in for the night, so I may update both later.] Also, here’s a link to a response from a while back to an ask concerning recs for Lovecraftian films/Cosmic Horror. Whisperer is on that, too. 
Thanks very much for the fun question and have a nice night.
