Mountains of Madness

 

Rats, rats, rats, rats, rats, rats, rats, rats, RATS!!!!!

 

Based on the stories of HP Lovecraft, Alexander Hacke, bass player for

the German band Einstürzende Neubauten, and London-based band The

Tiger Lillies, perform a chilling, ghostly musical interpretation of

Lovecraft’s stories.

In this 2005 rock video, Lovecraft’s stories of ancient gods, terror

and lost souls are brought to life in a sometimes humorous, yet

melancholic manner by the artists. The Tiger Lillies' traditional

array of instruments, combined with Alexander Hacke’s electronic sound

compositions give this performance its ghostly ambiance in which an

open-minded audience can immerge itself in the imagination of

Lovecraft.

 

The Call of Cthulhu” is H.P. Lovecraft's most famous story, and the

only story to feature the celebrated monster Cthulhu.

A dying professor leaves his great-nephew a collection of documents

pertaining to the Cthulhu Cult. The nephew’s investigation to

understand his grandfather’s fascination with the cult becomes a

crusade of his own as he learns of the dire implications of the

inquiries. As he pieces together the dreadful and disturbing reality

of the twisted knot of fear, madness, nameless cults and horrors the

situation presents, his own sanity begins to dissipate. In the end, he

passes the torch to his psychiatrist, who assumes the Cthulhu crusade.

The film was the Online Viewers Voice Award winner at the Cinequest

Film Festival 18 in San Jose, California in 2008 and has also been an

official selection at international film festivals in Greece, Brazil,

and Italy. Produced by members of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical

Society, it is filmed in the classic 1920s silent movie style which

provides the story with an authentic and spirited interpretation of

Lovecrafts’s most influential tale.
