She was topless a couple years ago in Jakob's Wife but, at 64, she might be done. But ya never know.

Iím all for Heather Graham showing some skin but that looks bad, like student film bad.


Kind of cool retro looking poster though.

"Filmed in Cthulhuscope"
I'm definitely seeing this, but my expectations are not high.

Dennis Paola has written most of the great Lovecraft adaptation scripts. Definitely intrigued.

Keep expectations low for this one.

It was not great IMHO. I would give it 2 out of 5 for Heather G.

No Crampton nudity.

I thought it was pretty good actually. Not perfect, but enjoyable. Enjoyable enough that I'd like to watch it again, because the underlying concept of the movie isn't 100% clear at first, you eventually get it over the course of the movie. So I want to see some early scenes again, now that I know just what the hell is happening. Also, I never read The Thing on the Doorstep, which I'll be fixing this week when the SoCal rains hit.
