H.P. Lovecraft is one of my favorite authors, of any genre. Why is it that so few of his stories have made it to film? There was "The Dunwitch Horror" (1970), that did bear a slight resemblance to the original story, and I believe I saw a TV show or movie years ago that had a Lovecraftian Cthulhu-type creature coming up through the floor of an old house in response to a "incantation" (maybe a remake of "T.D.H.?")

I'd love to see a well-known director such as John Carpenter, Steven Sommers, or even Spielberg do an adaptation of the novella "At The Mountains Of Madness" It has the potential of the "unknown territory"/Indana Jones-style exploration, plus the creepiness of the whole "Cthulhu Mythos" going for it.

"Call of Cthulhu" would be a cool sequel.
