(sorry, no mythos, just reanimation)
One of the best B-movies to ever come from an HPL poem...creativity at its finest! Heck, I would actually go see that play!
saw that on pharygula earlier. think that is PZ?
By the way, did you know you can rent The Call of Cthulhu on Netflix?
Rent? you mean, you don't OWN a copy yet???
Rent? Own? Copy? You mean you aren't haunted by these images in your dreams?
more Lovecraft-inspired than literally Lovecraft, but this seems like the right forum for this:
so just what flavor is the cthulhu cookie?
Rotted fish from untold eons, I would imagine.
i suggest this for the package http://lolthulhu.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/arwedda-ur_sanity.jpg
If we're talking about any reference- Lovecraft's "That is not dead" poem is on the cover for Maiden's Live After Death album.

Lovecraft Reference -- Futurama of Course!
Dr. Zoidberg is the funniest and most pathetic character on Futurama. He is definitely based on a Cthulhuoid physical format, though he's red, portly, has lobster claws and a blowhole. He has face tentacles, so there you go!
The episode "Roswell that Ends Well," where the characters traveled back to Earth 1947 in Roswell (due to a malfunctioning microwave oven in the ship's kitchen), was fabulous. Dr. Zoidberg was captured by the U.S. Army and interrogated by President Truman, and Zoidberg accused Truman of hitting on him. Then they performed a live autopsy on Dr. Zoidberg, and he kept cracking jokes the whole time. The doctors were fishing out his stomach contents, and every time they removed a deviled egg and put it in a pan, Zoidberg ate it again. The doctors were irritated.
The computer game "Fallout 3" has a "Dunwich Building" full of ghouls, with a strangely carved obelisk in a cavern underneath and a bit of a Lovecraftesque backstory.
Ethan Suppley (sic?) from "My Name is Earl" was on Chelsea Lately tonight wearing a HP Lovecraft shirt...
