Stuart Gordon and Brian Yuzna are justly famous for their humour but I feel that it's utterly misplaced in this otherwise decent but loose adaptation of Lovecraft's The Shadow Over Innsmouth. The film builds a dank and ruinous sense of dread in a great setting and then throws it away for a few cheap gags. Also, why did they chant to Cthulhu ("Rejoice! Rejoice! Cthulhu waits!") at the end instead of Dagon ?
