I've seen most of the American made Lovecraftian films, including all of the Stuart Gordon ones, some good some bad as you all know, but I want to bring your attention to a 2-part film series that is HPL inspired, was one of Paul Naschy's last roles before he passed, and is absolutely fabulous. The films also star Aleister Crowley and HPL himself as characters.
The films are called La Herencia Valdemar and La Herenica Valdemar II: La Sombra Prohibida. Without further ado, I'll post both the YouTube trailers for your pleasure. Please forgive me as they are in Spanish, unsubtitled, but you can hunt down a copy on dvd or otherwise with english subs etc. But you will surely get the gist of the films, their brilliance and haunting atmosphere.
The second film was released in the Spanish cinema not too long ago, and I eagerly await its availability so I can watch it, as I immensely enjoyed the first film:
Hey--thanks for the movie tips--it's hard to find movies that do justice to Lovecraft. Even though it's terribly campy & silly & trite, I like "The Dunwich Horror" from so long ago, Starring Dean Stockwell--if memory holds

Yes, the Dunwich Horror from the 70s was actually quite good, and the recent remake again with Dean Stockwell who this time plays Henry Armitage of Miskatonic University and Jeffrey Combs as Wilber Wheatley in his place is not that bad either !
I saw the first one, La Herencia Valdemar. I haven't had time to watch the second yet.
(no spoilers below)
It's very well made, a professional production with at least a million or two Euros spent. Strangely, it was made by Universal, the same company that turned down del Toro's Mountains of Madness.
The story sets up an investigation into a strange house, with a lot of freaky things surrounding it, but the bulk of the movie is a flashback about what happened in the house in the past, when Aleister Crowley was involved with it.
There's no mythos in the first movie that I can really detect, just a few hints at "Outer Gods" that are closer to us and more extant than Yahweh.
It's worth seeing, certainly, but it's not really related to Poe's story "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar", nor anything by Lovecraft.
The trailer for the sequel, La Sombra Prohibida, however, has a full CG Cthulhu bellowing and smashing things. Hopefully I'll have time to view it in the next few days.
