The call of 1920s-style silent film making

I've never been a fan of the Cthulhu mythos, but I very much enjoyed Andrew Leman's 2005 The Call of Cthulhu. Especially impressive was the obvious amount of effort that went into recreating the feel of a 1920s silent film made at the same time that Lovecraft was penning his stories, as well as the body language of acting during that era.

As a horror story, it does quite well.
