Beyond the Wall of Sleep

I like H. P. Lovecraft. I don't believe that I've read Beyond the Wall of Sleep, but it has an interesting premise. At an insane asylum in 1908, some warped doctors examine a mountain man (hillbilly, really) with a strange growth protruding from his back. Seems promising, eh?

Well, the movie stunk. I guess that shouldn't be surprising, given that it was a straight to video release. Still, it failed to meet even my meager expectations. So, take the word of the lady at the video store and avoid it heartily. I may dig up the short story, though.
