Lazy Friday Video Post: The Whisperer in Darkness

Recently I learned about the upcoming “The Whisperer in Darkness” movie. It’s the second adaption of a H.P. Lovecraft story by the people who brought us the awesome “Call of Cthulhu” silent movie. If you want to start a roleplaying campaign based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos with people unfamiliar with his works, you should start by showing them “Call of Cthulhu”. It’s a great way to introduce new people to the genre. Here’s the teaser trailer of the upcoming movie:

Or do you think that showing “Call of Cthulhu” before starting a campaign is too revealing? Have you ever used movies to introduce your players to a new campaign? Please share your thoughts with us in the comments below!
