H.P. Lovecraft being adapted to the big screen has been mixed to say the least. And in many cases, such movies are part of his “universe” he created rather than based off any specific story that he has written. The movie THE DEEP ONES (2021) appeared late last year and got some notice with its title alone – about a group of monsters that appeared or were mentioned in numerous tales of his.
Alex and Petri are on vacation for some good old relaxation. The property they are renting is owned by Russell Marsh, a local mover-and-shaker that runs a small colony of the beach town that the couple vacations in. When a mysterious woman warns the couple about a mysterious cult, Alex especially becomes concerned when changes begin to happen with Petri’s behavior.
The film is written and directed by long time indy horror filmmaker Chad Ferrin. THE DEEP ONES stars Gina La Piana, Johann Urb, Robert Miano, Silvia Spross, Jackie Debatin, and Kelli Maroney. Dark Discussions takes a look at this midnight movie and gives their thoughts on this Lovecraft adaptation.
