So in Lovecraft's story "The Temple"... was that sunken ancient city in which the submarine ended up resting the city of R'yleh perhaps? Was the temple that the seamen feared to explore in his last days THE TEMPLE in which resided Cthulhu? The submarine was on a course for the south... but perhaps it was the wrong time of year not being April, but August... just wondering what other readers would suspect. Trying to piece together some of the stories. I've taken on a new obsession lately. And is Dagon a sub-god to Cthulhu? Is there any reference tying the two together in any of the mythos? I so wish a great director with a good cast (NOT including Jeffrey Combs) and a hefty budget for production could turn out a great Cthulhu film, and remain faithful to Lovecraft's vision at the same time. Seems they rewrite The Shadow Over Innsmouth and call it something else every time while taking liberty to twist the story and change the details when the story was perfect in the first place. Why not just call it "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" if that's the inspiration... Maybe I'm just spoiled by Hollywood. If you're going to call it "Dagon" why not just make a film around the short story of the same title? It'd be like LOST or Castaway or the Blue Lagoon... but with a weird monolith, a brief sighting of some strange giant fish-dude, and a long journey back to the ocean that doesn't seem quite as unwelcoming as it did before seeing the fish-dude at the monolith. I love the concept of enlightenment paralleling insanity. Why didn't I read this stuff sooner?
