A posting at TVtropes.org has collected quite a lengthy list of Lovecraftian inspired films and television shows. Unlike some older websites which aren't the easiest to navigate, this list provides a nicely summarized glimpse at Lovecraftian film. It also includes all of the biggest ones to feature direct H.P. Lovecraft story adaptations or at least inspiration; past, present, and future. Completists will be better served by this book from Andrew Migliore, The Lurker in the Lobby: The Guide to Lovecraftian Cinema, produced by major figures involved with the annual H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. For the initiate into weird cinema or those who just want an easily accessible inventory of the major screen adaptions, you could do a lot worse than starting with TVtropes.org.
