Prior to watching these DVDs, my friend (a fan of H.P. Lovecraft) had me read the short story "Pickman's Model."

Chilean Gothic (a.k.a. Pickman's Model)
Josh and I watched this on the H.P. Lovecraft Collection Volume 4 Pickman's Model. Some parts were weird, but there's the right atmosphere that I get from watching this movie, which is only loosely based on the book, that I didn't get from reading the story. Perhaps I couldn't visualize the story fully. In any case, the movie isn't scary, more of creepy. The ending is great.

Pickman's Model (Italy) Giovanni Furore
This one was closer to the original story than Chilean Gothic. But the actor playing Pickman didn't seem to fit and the choice of Pickman having a hunched back and needing a cane was also weird. The ending was also strange. There was also a length issue. A thirty minute short!? Haha. That's two-thirds of the feature film. Though it was scary to be able to see the monster as opposed to with Chilean Gothic.
