Dreams in the Witch House

by Megan M. on November 14, 2005 · View Comments (Blog) |

I never got the chance to read the original story by H.P. Lovecraft, but last night Marty and I found ourselves watching it on Showtime… and it was just plain great. Apparently it was an episode of a Showtime series called ‘Masters of Horror’.

Here’s the synopsis from Showtime’s site:

In this tale based on the short story by horror master H.P. Lovecraft, Stuart Gordon will once again confirm his place as the premiere director of Lovecraft’s tales of terror. Walter Gilman (Ezra Godden), a college student studying interdimensional string theory, rents a garret in a run-down building in the old New England town of Arkham. Haunted by terrifying nightmares that involve a witch, a supernatural rodent and perhaps Satan himself, Walter starts to lose his grip on reality. He begins to believe his string theory studies have uncovered a portal into a parallel universe rife with diabolical forces gathering to sacrifice his neighbor’s infant. As Walter struggles to prevent this atrocity, it becomes less clear if he will save the child or become its unwitting murderer himself.

Walter is played by the same actor who starred in Stuart Gordon’s Dagon. I saw Dagon, but I didn’t realize who it was until Marty pointed it out during the credits. And honestly, I didn’t notice his acting, specifically, not then. But in Dreams in the Witch House, he’s amazing. His acting is really clear and to the point – no fuzzy stuff, nothing too subtle. And it’s full of slightly cheesy sequences (“Walter. Walter. She’s coming. She’s coming for yooou. Hmmm.”) Also, I just realized – Gordon directed this one, too, and he helped write the teleplay. I wonder what else he’s done? I’m going to have to look him up. He’s done a bunch of stuff I haven’t seen – See? Looks very neat.

    Eugene, nifty! I ADORED that howto, it was really very helpful and informative and since then I seem to have accumulated a circle of happy sushi-eating friends to help me enjoy it! Please do drop me a note if you get to Ohio (and I will do likewise if I end up in SF), it would be wonderful to sit down and chat. :}

    Greetings Megan!

    I saw one of your posts from last March... and you mentioned my Sushi Eating HOWTO! I feel so excited! Thanks very much for the mention. Thanks for featuring that. If you want, I'm totally game to invite you to a sushi outing the next time that you're in San Francisco. Or the next time I pass through Ohio (based on your whois information). I spent quite a bit of time in Columbus/Dayton/Cleveland. There's better sushi here, though...

    Take care and best wishes,
