Lee and Daniel are back to finish-off this run of H.P. Lovecraft adaptations with a fairly in-depth discussion about Stuart Gordon's "Re-Animator" (1985). Also on deck are two short films: "The Call of Cthulhu" (2005) & "Out of Mind: The Stories of H.P. Lovecraft" - the former being an adaptation of Lovecraft's story, done in the style of a 1920s-era silent film; the latter being both an adaptation of "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward", as well as an exploration of Lovecraft's themes and general thoughts behind what he wrote and why. Of course, the usual talk of what the hosts have been watching as of late is also here.
