Hey! This was pretty good!
I’m so used to movies based on Lovecraft’s stories being utter crap that I went into this one expecting I’d be turning it off a few minutes later… but surprise! It was a pretty darned good take on its source material. It’s obviously micro-budget and stylized to make up for it. A lot of the tale is told in narration… but I’d MUCH rather have that than a lot of awful CGI attempting to visualize things the story only hinted at. It’s a subtle telling, one that’s likely to draw the dreaded ‘boring’ descriptor from less patient audiences… but whatever. The Thing On The Doorstep is actually one of my favorite of Lovecraft’s lesser Mythos stories… there are some genuinely creepy ideas going on in it and this movie caught on to them and even expanded them in ways that I felt were in keeping with the spirit of the tale. For instance, giving the protagonist a wife and child (not in the original story) was not just a tacked detail… their presence made the nature of the threat more personal and immediate and brought up new dimensions to how the goings on might have been interpreted. One thing that is particularly strong about the movie is the acting. The actors are not the usual crop of 20-somethings that get shoveled into most horror films. The characters here are older and with that carry a certain gravity the story deserves.

Just so I don’t come off as a shill… there were a few things that bothered me. The movie takes place in modern times, which I was fine with… but there were places where the writer chose to used the language of the original story and those bits of dialogue feel a bit clunky. Thankfully most of that is early on and then stops… though it comes up again during the reading of Edward’s note at the end. Also (and this is me being a picky Lovecraft fan) while the actress playing Asenath was perfectly fine and doesn’t really appear that much on-screen, I did find myself wishing they’d gone the extra mile and found someone with a touch more of the ‘Innsmouth look’. My last complaint is with the depiction of the ‘thing’ of the title. I know it’s a low budget project but I wished they’d done it differently. As it is the camera spends to much time on the ‘thing’ and its really not ready for its closeup. I think they could have gotten away with the less-is-more approach that had been used for the visions and dream sequences in the earlier parts of the movie.

Still, I’m impressed… by the directing, the writing and the acting. I’d love to see these folks take a shot at ‘Dreams In The Witch House’ and erase my memory of the awful Stuart Gordon version.
