Astoria = Innsmouth

So the moment I've dreaded has arrived, and it's actually very funny. The trailer of the new Call of Cthulhu horror film (Quicktime) is available. The film "stars" Tori Spelling and seems destined for B-movie greatness, if not quite Snakes on a Plane level greatness. I could learn to like the Hollywood update of the crusty old genre tropes.

The trailer freaked me out a little because I recognized the bridge at the start (it's at the mouth of the Columbia River), and, in a burst of synchronicity, I set my last Cthulhu campaign in the town of Astoria where they shot the movie. Their location scout did a good job. The place is just loaded with Mythos flava, as in it's probably the most deceprit, eerie, Lovecraftian town on the West coast. Ask me about the Quinault tribe sometime if you don't believe me.

Huh, maybe this movie won't be a washout after all.

Don't second guess yourself. You mentioned the only factor that needs to be considered, it stars Tori Spelling. *eep* =)
