A pretty divisive film, we have a lot of Lovecraftian themes to boot. Most of them lying in the concept of an archaeological dig that uncovers an ancient evil. Definitely worth a viewing if you haven’t had the chance!

A film that was controversial as hell when it released, Angel Heart has since gained a cult following. Telling the story of a private investigator searching for a missing man, only to uncover horrifying occult secrets, this film remains a powerhouse in the 1980s horror genre. Its Lovecraftian influence stems from the unreliable narrative, the madness which ensues for our protagonist, and the occult dealings that determine Harry Angel’s (Mickey Rourke) fate.

74. ANNIHILATION (2018)
