There's also been a film fest movie called "the last Lovecraft".
Looks hilarious.

Hp lovecraft collection 1- Cool Air good adaptation  other bits are fun
Hp lovecraft collection 2-Rough Magik-Really enjoyed this one but modern setting
Hp lovecraft collection 3-Out of Mind some cool bits
Hp lovecraft collection 5- Thing on the doorstep low budget but suprisingly good

what happened to number 4?

Alone in the dark- I spent money on this ::)

even more horrific is that they made an Alone in the Dark 2 and Christian Slater was recast as Korean

I haven't got round to getting it yet, Jo is very good, but she has said more DvDs or sculpts this month, I went for sculpts   :D

Oh I did watch the first few minutes of alone in the dark 2, and boy was I glad I didn't buy it.

I like crappy films but it was too much for even me  ;D

as it's just started on ITV4 I'm reminded that Conan the Destroyer had quite a good mythos type god manifesting at the end... pity the film is so wet...

A few others:

John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness - A Catholic priest discovers an ancient canister of swirling eldrich fluid enshrined in the basement of an abandoned church, and calls on an old physics professor friend of his to investigate.

Chronos - Guillermo Del Toro's first feature film. A kindly old antiques dealer finds a clockwork medallion housing an insect who's sting causes vampirism, and must then struggle to shield his family from the consequences.

Mimic - Guillermo Del Toro's first Hollywood film. Plucky scientist gal discovers that a bio-engineered pest control insect she created years ago has since evolved to prey on humans in the city's back allies and subway tunnels. Not as good as Devil's Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth, or Chronos, mostly due to executive meddling, but still decent (the ending falls flat, but the first two thirds are solid and creepy).

The Resurrected - Stuart Gordan's whack at adapting Charles Dexter Ward. Despite some rather bad acting and editing, you can really tell the filmmakers genuinely loved the source material. Worth seeing for the scenes of Curwen's underground secret lab alone.

Dark Waters - A young woman travels to an island monastery in eastern Europe after receiving a letter from her sister, who was one of the nuns there, and discovers the monastery is being corrupted from the inside by a lovecraftian cult.

History viewed from the inside is always a dark, digestive mess, far different from the easily recognizable cow viewed from afar by historians.

I was about to add that to my rental queue... then saw Lorenzo Lamas was in it...  lol

He isn't. You must have been looking at a different "Dark Waters". IIRC there are two or three other movies with very similar titles. This is the one you want:

Unless that was a joke reference that I didn't get or something.

Yep. The Thing is actually based on an old John W. Campbell story called Who Goes There? (and it's a rather good adaptation too), but John Carpenter also drew heavily on ATMoM for inspiration while making the film, and boy howdy does it show!

Another movie to look for (if you can find it) is The Keep- A small Nazi garrison is assigned to guard a pass in the Romanian alps using a bizarre ancient stone fortification as a base, and end up accidentally freeing the Ancient EvilTM imprisoned inside. Technically more of a fantasy/Gothic horror crossbreed (especially in the book it's based on), but the movie is plenty strange and cyclopean enough to serve as Cthulhu Mythos inspiration. The titular keep is one of the most visually creepy structures ever put on film IMO. You couldn't pay me so sleep in that place even if it wasn't haunted.

What Waits Below might fit as mythos-y

Robert Powell as a stereotypical 80's action hero mercenary sperlunker called Wolf Wulfsen... lost civilisation of giant albinos, references to Lemuria and giant snake things in the walls... glorious...
