October Horror Movie Challenge - The Dunwich Horror (1970)

Synopsis: Wilbur Whateley visits Arkham's Miskatonic University to borrow the Necronomican. Little do the students and faculty know that he's not quite human.

The Good: While it's definitely a 70's flick and it isn't like most of the "Lovecraftian" movies I've seen The Dunwich Horror definitely has elements of the source material. I'll be honest, I squee'd when I heard them say the name Dr. Henry Armitage.

The Bad: This flick is a trippy 70's B movie. The acting isn't the greatest.The pacing is different. The movie is quite slow until shit hits the fan, then it moves at a mad dash.

Final Thoughts: This movies not bad or good in my opinion. If you like retro B flicks or Lovecraft, check it out.

In Your Game: If you want some Dunwich Horror in your game check out Call of Cthulhu. Pathfinder's Bestiaries include a lot of mythos creatures.
