I went to go see Clive Barker speak in Berkeley a while back, and when asked about exciting new horror films, he recommended this. A while later, I ended up renting it, and I enjoyed this immensely. It's an original take on the werewolf film, using the werewolf as a metaphor for puberty and growing up. The movie never takes itself very seriously, and it approaches horror movie stereotypes and standards playfully. Great, fun, movie. Does contain some scenes that might bother you if you're easily grossed out. Otherwise, very highly recommended.
A good vaguely Lovecraft inspired anime

Blue Seed is the story of a girl named Momiji who is the reincarnation of an old princess. She's pursued by ancient demon/alien things that look like Cthulhu-mythos monsters. The monsters are created by blue seeds that mutate people or animals.

Soon comes along an earthling defense force that shoots the alien monsters with big guns and magical powers. Momiji joins up with them, and they start investigating the mysterious monster invasion.

If this all sounds kind of typical, thats because there is nothing revolutionary about this anime. It's an excellent example of the genre, though, and if this sounds like it would be up your alley then you would probably not be disappointed by Blue Seed.
