Editorial Reviews

American author H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) is one of the masters of gothic horror literature from the early 20th century. Presented here for the first time are three different interpretations of Lovecraft's short story about a morbid painter named Richard Upton Pickman, who created from his fiendish brush "unbelievable loathsomeness and moral foetor." It is a tale that exemplifies Edgar Allan Poe's unity of effect principle. Lovecraft succeeded in painting a story as meticulously shocking in its realism as any painting from Richard Upton Pickman. The only question that remains is: Are you Pickman?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent collection from Lurker Films May 31, 2007
There is something truly amazing about the motivating power of dissatisfaction. After decades of watching Hollywood fail at adapting Lovecraft, fans started taking matters into their own hands. And not just American fans, which is what makes this collection from Lurker Films such a treat. Of the three adaptations of Pickman's Model included, the foreign versions are the most delightful. A tale of ghoulish deeds such as this need not be tied down to a single locale or time period, so seeing it in modern day Chile or Italy is just as effective as Lovecraft's original New England setting.

This is a wonderful collection of adaptations and another excellent DVD from Lurker Films. Bravo!
