    Hang on. What if it isn't lying atop the sand? What if it's bulk lies beneath the sand?

    Could it be a titanic ELBOW?

    Since it is clear that this forum has a number of fans of the gentleman from Providence, I figured I'd share this for those who don't know: after directing "Hellboy" and "The Wind in the Willows", Guillermo del Toro plans to make an epic film version of "At the Mountains of Madness". As a period film, not some updated 21st century version. Could the first truly great modern Lovecraft film be close at hand? Could it possibly topple "The Haunted Palace" from first place on my (admittedly short) list of favourite Lovecraft-adapted films? Time will tell!

    Yikes. Can you imagine the people dressed up as Old ones, etc at the line outside the theater for the premier?????
    Could be fun!

    Maybe they could do an updated version like Rom. and Juliet....Decaprio can play Danforth! " Like G, lets take a bump and cruise over those chillin peaks with all the non-like-euclidian stones and sh*t..."

    Hmmm.

    i don't do movies and all that entertainment type stuff usuall,but if thet release "at the mountains of madness" i'll have to make an exception to my usual routine. no doubt about it! that one's gonna rock! of course if they botch it they'll only reinforce my apathy for the industry. here's hoping that they do it justice...'cause it would be super sweet to see a shoggoth on the big screen!

    'Steve O'Shea, a professor and researcher at the Earth and Ocean Sciences Research Center at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and the world's foremost expert on giant squids, said there have been reports of the giant squid reaching sizes of up to 60 feet, but the largest known specimen that washed ashore on New Zealand measured 55 feet 2 inches in total length.'

    How do we misquote thee, let me count the ways... :?
