    It deserves the respect for being one of the few Lovecraftian films to ever take off in terms of popularity and acclaim (acclaim being moreso cult following but yeah)

    Even though it's a comedy film first and i prefer my Lovecraftian influenced media to be absolutely terrifying

    Still, gotta respect it
