The Cast of Cthulhu: Black Mountain Side
Happy new year, y’all!
Before discussing the surprisingly good Black Mountain Side, we catch up on some news and housekeeping, including Jim bidding adieu to I Do Movies Badly (boo…), a new home for The Cast of Cthulhu on Battleship Pretension (hooray!), and discussion about indie directors Benson & Moorehead signing on to Moon Knight.
But if you’d like to bid auld lang syne to what was and focus on what’s ahead, skip ahead to roughly 31 minutes where we dig into Nick Szostakiwskyj’s Black Mountain Side, a claustrophobic slow burn cosmic horror film with more questions than answers and the creepiest, most gravelly voice this side of the French New Wave.
Head over to The Lovecraft eZine to read the interview with writer/direct Nick Szostakiwskyj’s quoted in the episode.
I agree on how difficult it was to distinguish the characters. At least with The Thing there was a range of ages, and some characters didn’t have as much facial hair.
