As pointed out a few times, many things take inspiration from his works, use characters, concepts. Rarely does his actual work become something, and then rarely anything good. Seems too many focus on the horror stories and cults.

 

to get this ball rolling here is a fan made video about one of his lesser known stories

I love H.P.L, and his pals and children-in-spirit. Why settle for the lesser evil, indeed? :biggrin:

the movie: Dagon. Rarely does a direct HP Lovecraft work become adapted, and usually very badly. This sadly is one of the better ones.
