Dunwich Horror, The (1970)

The Dunwich Horror (1970), directed by Daniel Haller.

Lovecraft fans are not very happy with this AIP adaptation. We never get any metaphysical terror of the unearthly Old Ones; they are represented by glimpses of ecstatic dirty hippy folk, probably meant to represent their human cultists. The creature escaped from the attic is supposed to be -- what? The ending is an anticlimax.

The good points:

Produced by Roger Corman from a Curtis Hanson screenplay. Rather good Les Baxter score.

Available on Blu-ray from Shout Factory with a rather fine unprocessed image and one of those encyclopedic commentary tracks that would be better as a printed reference work. Murders in the Rue Morgue (1971) is on the same disc.
