If only the movie was as exciting as this pressbook layout. Good and alien evil battle in this story from H.P. Lovecraft, which is higly unusual because HPL ignored such dynamics in his other work. The Cthulhu Mythos is all about us against them and they're winning, with no cavalry on the way.
You won't see terms like "half-witted girl" used in mainstream movie poster art anymore, although its use here, with the lurid graphic, solidifies the presence of an unclean, deviant evil.
That opening animation is the most exciting part.

Wow, cool stuff. Yeah, the movie's pretty disappointing, but I love the animated intro with Les Baxter's effective score:
