Película (de muy bajo presupuesto) basada en la novela At the Mountains of Madness (1931, Literatura) de H. P. Lovecraft.
"At The Mountains Of Madness" is horror writer H.P. Lovecraft’s most famous and chilling story – and when it comes to chilling and unknowable horror – Lovecraft is one of the genre’s masters. Has the story ever been made into a film? Yes, it has.
Lots and lots of filmmakers have attempted to change the story into a film, including James Cameron and more recently Guillermo del Toro who tried to get NetFlix to finance a version featuring Tom Cruise. But neither Del Torro or Cameron could get the film finance together and both of their versions of the famous story withered on the filmmaking vine.
The only version of the film that made it to production is a low budget, arty black and white indie horror directed by Matthew Cooper (your’s truly) and starring Tony Coughlan, Ashe Russell and Gary Geeson.
The film was made in 2020/21 during the height of the Covid Pandemic, on a budget below £10,000 and was mostly shot in and around Yorkshire in the UK – although you wouldn’t be able to tell from the snowy wastelands on screen.
and no matter what you make of the low budget version of ‘At The Mountains Of Madness’ – at least these filmmakers made it – which is a step further than Del Toro or Cameron ever managed.
