Atmosphere | The Call of Cthulhu

The Call of Cthulhu

Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB
Thursday 24th June 2010, 8.30 for 9pm

Written in 1926, just before the advent of talking pictures, The Call of Cthulhu is one of the most famous and influential tales of H.P. Lovecraft, the father of cosmic terror. Now the story is brought richly to life in the style of a classic 1920s silent movie using the filmmakers own ‘Mythoscope’ process. They have strived to create the most authentic and faithful adaptation of a Lovecraft story ever attempted.

It's the near future, and astronaut Sam Bell is living on the far side of the moon. He's completing a three-year contract with Lunar Industries to mine for Earth’s new primary source of clean energy, Helium-3.

It's a solitary job, made harder by a broken satellite that allows no live communications home. Taped messages are all he can send and receive. The only real-time interaction is with GERTY, the station's robotic computer. He yearns to go home, but an accident uncovers a startling truth.

Returning to England from a bombing run in May 1945, RAF pilot Peter Carter's plane has been shot and his parachute damaged. He jumps, and awakes washed up on a beach. There was a mixup in heaven. It was his time to die, but his 'Conductor' missed him in thick fog over the Channel.

By the time the 'Conductor' catches him, Peter has fallen in love with June, an American radio operator. Peter figures that heaven owes him a second chance. The powers that be agree to a trial to decide his fate.


Atmosphere | Mon Oncle

Mon Oncle

Jacques Tati returns as the bumbling yet lovable hero Monsieur Hulot running amok in the ultramodern home of his sister, and later his brother-in-law's plastic hose factory. A delightful satire of postwar France's obsession with mechanized living, modern architecture and rampant US-style consumerism. Pitfalls and pratfalls ensue, and nothing goes to plan.
