"West of Arkham, the hills rise wild.


There are valleys with deep wood that no axe has ever cut. There are dark narrow glens where the trees slope fantastically. Where thin brooklets trickle with ever having caught the glimpse of sunlight.


When I went into the hills and vales to survey for the new reservoir, they told me the place was evil.


They told me this in Arkham, and because that is a very old town full of witch legends, I thought the evil must be something that grand-dads had whispered to children through centuries.


Then I saw the dark westward tangle of glens and slopes for myself. And ceased to wonder at anything besides its own elder mystery..."

This is such the perfect embodiment of "Lovecraftian music"

Stunning and breathtaking it is. Also, the dialogue that ends the movie. lending much beauty and power to Lovecraft's words and vision.

This movie and this music created something unique.
The soundtrack made it interesting, dangerous yet entirely mystifying and wonderous.
Complimenting the visual chorus in full, all which in turn affected the acting and story.
Had a feeling this movie was gonna be something rare to behold.
Entirely thought-provoking.

@The 80's Wolf It definitely has influenced it. The colour scheme and all :) Funny though because I did not like Annihilation that much. Had some great moments and all. Seen that movie only once. When this movie came out I saw it 3-4 times in a week or 2 aha. I think this is one of the best movies I've seen.
Something in me loves this movie completely. I love alien 1979 and I'd say it is the best Sci-fi horror ever made. Until this movie.

@VikCleDoom aha I think this movie fits the description Cosmic Horror best :p It is based on a short story by Hp Lovecraft. All of the elements combined that make this movie truly improve on the story... Even Script that was made for the movie adds to the short story. Lovecraft would have loved this.

@VikCleDoom
True. Richard Stanley even said he liked Annihilation and think it's one of the best recent examples of cosmic horror movies

@The 80's Wolf I like to put this movie right next to "Cosmic horror". the artwork reminded me a lot of how the Annihilation movie was handled in those aspects.
