At the Mountains of Madness

A splendidly atmospheric animation of At the Mountains of Madness, by H. P. Lovecraft. I love this story of an aeons-old city in Antarctica, and the terrible fate that overtook its inhabitants. The film is Italian, with captions if you want them, but the animation does all the heavy lifting. It’s a pity the studios backed away from a full length movie proposed by director Guillermo del Toro and screenwriter Matthew Robbins – I was looking forward to that.
