Warlords of Atlantis has some lovecraftian elements as I think about it.... cursed idol, monsters from the deep/another world, deep one hybrid types....

I have attended the HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland Oregon several times in the past few years. My 2 short films, "The Vessel" and "Room for Error" were screened there. Always a good crop of indie Lovecraft inspired films, and adaptations. I have seen many versions of Cool Air, Statement of Randolph Carter, From Beyond, The Tomb. A really good short film was "Binding Silence" which won the 2006 award for best short.

I'm 6 years late jumping on this one, but you guys forgot Alien. Its part Lovecraftian Horror, part gothic horror. The Nostromo looks like a big gothic mansion, and an unknowable horror waiting in deep space, with no regard for human life? Pure Lovecraft.

I was also going to mention Event Horizon and also add The Relic. Both of these films I felt were very "Lovecraftian".

There's The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu which is distinctly tongue in cheek but worth a watch. It was available in one of the UK poundshops for, as might be expected,  1.

Three very good recommendations there. Event Horizon and John Dies at the End are tow of my favourite films, the book of JDatE is also fantastic. The Void was basically everything I love rolled into one movie. Those triangle hoods are getting painted onto my cultists, without a doubt.

Call Girl of Cthulhu (2014)

I think the list of films influenced by Lovecraft is a lot bigger than this. These appear to be films that are based on Lovecraft's work or directly reference the man himself or elements from his Mythos. His influence is evident in hundreds more films. Well, maybe not hundreds, but a lot more than on that list. Cast a Deadly Spell is one of the best of those listed above, it's a lot of fun and really inventive. Worth tracking down.

 The Void was pretty enjoyable, an old school physical effects film (no shortage of sprayed Kensington Gore). As an aside, 'The Resurrected' sometimes turns up as 'Shatterbrain' (a terrble title).
