“It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Fishmen”

Posted by frankie23

I hate it when people say they don’t like musicals. Mostly because, especially amongst those I hang out with, they immediately confess to loving The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Of course they do, who doesn’t? Eventually you can then pry out of them that they do in fact like other musicals, such as Little Shop Of Horrors, that one episode of Buffy, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. So, in the spirit of singing something instead of just saying it, I present to you Fishmen, a musical version of the H.P. Lovecraft classic, The Shadow Over Innsmouth, produced by the always amazing H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society. Honestly, I was a little doubtful that they could cram the entirety of the story into one minute and thirty-eight seconds, but by Jove they did, and it’s pretty damn slick. There’s some fine effects work, some disgusting Deep Ones, and a jaunty tune to take you along one man’s voyage of sickening self-discovery. Please, enjoy, and remember, you never quite know where you came from, until you go look!

    I just want to say that I don’t like musicals. Except for everything by Rogers & Hammerstein. Namely, The Sound of Music. And of course, Xanadu.
