RogueyWon writes: "The New Yorker is reporting that a planned adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft's seminal sci-fi horror novella "At the Mountains of Madness" has been canned by Universal over concerns that it would receive an "R" rating. Director Guillermo del Toro had planned a dark, high budget epic that would have defied the usual "schlock" horror conventions. Lovecraft fans will either be condemning Universal's timidity, or breathing a sigh of relief, depending upon the extent of their faith in Hollywood."
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves
up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
