ooooooooh, here’s the new trailer for La Sombra Prohibida (The Forbidden Shadow for us yanks), the second film in the The Valdemar Legacy written and directed by José Luis Alemán.

It’s a playful, tongue in cheek approach to the Cthulhu Mythos and guaranteed to brighten anyone’s day.

You can see the full image here. I haven’t been able to track down the original artist, one link pointed right back to McNaughton’s own site. If you know who the original… Continue »

It sounds like Guillermo Del Toro is still working on his adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness. In a recent interview Del Toro hinted that he’s using The Hobbit to perfect the visual/creature effects that he intends to use in AtMoM. Sweet! via
