average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Misa The Dark Angel
  A low budget Japanese sequel that mentions "Yog Sototu" and "Nilepotep".
Re-Animator (Millenium Special Edition) (1985)
  Modernized adaptation with a cult following. Low budget feel that has some general resemblance to the story.
In the Mouth of Madness (1994)
  Lovecraftian author and many references including an unaccredited direct quote from one of his stories.
The Dunwich Horror (1970)
  Only some of the names and the title have much to do with the original story.
Hellboy (2004)
  Based on a very Lovecraft oriented comic book world. Outer Gods and some veiled references.
The Shunned House (2002)
Not Rated
  Bizarre combination of several stories including "Dreams in the Witch-House" and "Music of Eric Zann." Not bad for a made on the weekend film.
Dagon (2001)
  Based very loosely on "Shadow over Innsmouth" with squid people instead of fish. Still one of the better Lovecraftian "adaptations" with a number of references.
Die, Monster, Die! (1965)
Not Rated
  "Colour Out of Space" with Boris Karloff. Some similarities and references.
Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn (1987)
Not Rated
  Reference with Necronomicon (which is not what it is called in the first Evil Dead) and some of the feel.
Devilman (1990)
Not Rated
  Vaguely Lovecraftian world that if I remember correctly also mentions the Necronomicon.
