  1. Wow what an awesome list. I'm going to import this right into my netflix cue.

  2. Fantastic!

    Suggest you add "Thirdspace", one of the Babylon 5 movies. It was intentionally a stand-alone (not part of the main story arc) and Lovecraft homage.

  3. Also: 5 Million Years to Earth/Quatermass and the Pit (US vs. British titles)
    should definitely be on the list.

    It's one of the best, a bit of the same feeling as Lifeforce (albeit with an earlier generation of special effects and no nekkid vampires).

  4. We just posted the first screen grabs from our adaptation of Cool Air at Let me know your thoughts! The release will be in a few weeks.

  5. To praghmatic.
    "Quatermass and the Pit" movie 1967? Series 1958? or both?

    So also in this list mus be "Quatermass II" - "Enemy from Space" 1957, many lovecraftian with giant "shoggoths" in the end.

  6. "Night of the Seagulls (Night of the Death Cult) by Amando DE Ossorio"

    You mean FIRST movie or all 4 parts??? Amando DE Ossorio filmed ALL franchise... Help, answer.
