Adapting Lovecraft to Film - Spotlight on the films of Stuart Gordon
Based on the works of Stuart Gordon: Of all the feature films based on Lovecraft’s work, few match the films of Stuart Gordon. Liberties are taken with the original stories, but Gordon adapts Lovecraft’s work with a surprising faithfulness, before adding in a few bits of his own. This panel will discuss how Gordon followed the basic outlines of The Re-Animator stories, From Beyond and Dreams in the Witch House to keep his adaptations true to the original work, while updating them for (or to assault) modern sensibilities. Migliore (M), Branney, Bullington, Gordon, Shirley, Stout
