Review

"A funny, refreshing take on horror-comedy, and a huge step up from the more standard lampooning films of the genre." -- Film Monthly, November 2006

"A whacked-out dark visual party." -- Hollywood Bitchslap, September 8, 2006

"B-Movie of the Week. A bizarre mixture of Mr. Show and Tales from the Darkside." -- Blogcritics Magazine, January 2007

"Horror's answer to the Gong Show." -- Creature Corner, March 2007

"LovecraCked! is showcasing indie-innovation at its best. Packs in enough absurd laughs and homemade avant-garde scares to make it worth checking out." -- PopMatters, November 2006

"Will thrill, shock, disgust and excite every brain cell. A bloody low budget masterpiece of creative trash cinema!" -- It's Only A Movie, November 2006

"Wonderfully surreal. It's got energy, enthusiasm and vitality. A welcome treat." -- Nefarious Films, October 2006

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad...really bad January 18, 2009
Format:DVD
I run a website called Bloopwatch.org, and I received a review copy of this film. This was one of the worst movies that's ever been tied to Lovecraft, in my opinion, and I have seen some really bad pieces based on HPL's writing. The centerpiece is a softcore porn version of Re-Animator (yes, I know...another one.) The framing sequence is one of the most painful things I've ever forced myself to sit through. A couple of the segments were at least interesting to watch, but overall, I don't recommend wasting the money or the time. If you want to see good indie horror film-making in the Lovecraft vein, buy a copy of the H.P. Lovecraft Collection 1 and watch "Cool Air" or the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society's excellent "Call of Cthulhu". Trust me on this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different Venue for Horror Spoof July 30, 2007
Format:DVD
Presented as an anthology of stories loosely tied together through vignettes featuring an investigative reporter researching the life and writings of horror/fantasy author H. P. Lovecraft, LOVECRACKED! THE MOVIEis sometimes amusing, but often is too hard to follow or falls flat. There are some truly brilliant, wacky pieces throughout the movie, but not enough of them.

I'd tried to watch the movie twice before I finally got through it on the third attempt. Earlier, I figured the problem was me. I was distracted, too tired from work to concentrate, or really in the mood for something that was easy to get into. But I had the same problems the third time through. The movie is so disjointed in places that it's almost like channel-surfing captured on DVD, although the stories all have to do with some aspect of Lovecraft, his work, or his Cthulhu Mythos so as not to be completely disjointed.

The stories featured on the DVD only pay passing homage to Lovecraft's work. Key pieces and conceits were borrowed or cannibalized but the new stories didn't really push into the deep thinking that lay behind those tales. Even though the movie is about Lovecraft, we don't really get to know the author. There's just not enough factual material in the presentation for someone unfamiliar with Lovecraft's fiction to get the paradigm behind the pieces. There was no discussion as to why the writers, actors, and directors show the path they took to create their films.

The parts of the movie that really work are the ones that are over-the-top. I loved the investigative reporter shtick and would often laugh out loud at the actor's antics. He had some really good stuff, and he was great with his expressions and dialogue delivery. He has a good sense of timing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Troma worthy for sure April 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's good that Lovecraft is dead because my god! He wasn't much for movies but yeesh this would have turned him away for good. It's campy, it's horrid, it's almost pornographic in some skits, but it does have enough for the Lovecraft fan to hold on to and know that he's watching satire. If ever anyone tried to create a Troma movie then Biff Juggernaught has achieved it. It's not always a good thing, but it is a ...thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre February 11, 2010

Quite entertaining. Erie, funny, and gross all at the same time! Some really good shorts in this one. There is a re-animator spoof that is rather unsettling.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not Lovecraft's cow. September 4, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It's seem to be trying so hard to be "wacky OMG random" humor. It's a self-consciously bad movie and those are rarely fun. It's just so boring and the "jokes" keep hammering away as if by sheer repetition it will somehow become funny.

Nothing is worse than bad comedy. Bad horror can be funny, bad drama hilarious, but bad comedy will never be anything but bad. It just sits there like a stale fart and life's too short to sit around waiting for it to disperse.
