the kids are calling them "Tupilaks" these days.

So there's a new Lovecraft movie out: a 20s-silent-film-styled Call of Cthulhu adaptation, which sounds like it could be cool (there are some trailers on the site, but I couldn't get them to play; the site is pretty hammered at the moment.) It's apparently from the folks responsible for A Shoggoth on the Roof. But, the real reason for this post is to bring you this other item on their web site:

The kids are calling them "Tupilaks" these days.

"In the 1870s, Professor Webb recovered this unholy fetish from a band of devil-worshipping Esquimaux in an incident which cost him his eye. [...] Collectors have acquired the tupilak as an unusual piece of Lovecraftian art, some have put it to use in magick rituals and others have noted its shape is suited for personal activities best left to your imagination."
