Born in the RSR Harry Potter as done by Tim Burton on an Asylum budget, this is even less marketable than that Jetsons WWE crossover.

BiggerJ I read the original comic this is based on at my local library (the whole Three Kingdoms collected edition - if this movie gets a sequel, Azathoth'll show up) and it wasn't terrible.
Most or all characters intruduced from 0:40 onward are new to the film.
Xenocide Does the comic also have him enslaving Cthulu and naming him Spot because that sure doesn't sound like the collective fever dream of every Hot Topic employee.
BiggerJ Thu Thu Hmong/Spot is a Deep One, but he possibly becomes a vessel for Cthulhu.
Rangoon Ron Perlman - Shoggoth
Christopher Plummer - Dr. West
Jane Curtin - Algid Bunk
Doug Bradley - Nyarlathotep
Beats digging ditches, I guess.
Seven Arts/H8 Red The film missed a trick by not having Garrett Morris in the cast. The man thought an invisible hypnotist robot controlled his every action. He's the only original SNL castmember who's seen visions nightmarish enough for a Lovecraft connection to be credible.
Lurchi Youtube comments are overwhelmingly negative -- I had to check because I can never tell when terrible shit will be positively received
infinite zest But Lovecraft fans are especially harsh when its anything other than their own fanfiction/art, up there with Steven Universe or MLP fans in fact. First they came for the Hot Topics and I said nothing.. then they came for Lovecraft..
Xenocide If I drew Steven Universe riding Fluttershy would they all hate me or love me?
BiggerJ Oh, and... don't flatter The Asylum. http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=157178
Spaceman Africa There is no way this is gonna be worse than Norm of the North
cognitivedissonance Norm of the North's problems were largely based around incongruent internal messaging. Being dependent upon an app to observe public sentiment around being able to build condos in the Arctic is just not terribly exciting.
This just looks faddish and twee.
Xenocide Norm of the North resulted in Rob Schneider getting money, and is therefore worse than this.
Maggot Brain It a shame the never get Lovecraft right. Why isn't this kid complaining about Armenians?
Gmork I'm more pissed off that they never get Conan right. Robert E Howard must be rolling in his grave.
