    So what dream directors for that Lovecraft film anthology?

    I'd say

    Carpenter (the 80s-90s Carpenter)
    Lynch
    Marshall
    Twohy
    Villeneuve
    Del Toro (with someone else's script)


    if he were alive I'd also say Zulawski

    I'd take Marshall and Twohy out of there.

    Add in David Robert Mitchell
    and Robert Eggers
    and Jonathan Glazer

    Dracula era F.F. Coppola would have made a hell of a lovecraft film.

    Only Glazer could make a great Lovecraft movie

    picture all the core mythos stories being made into an anthology of well-packed visceral motion pictures

    good names. I shamefully forgot Glazer he is THE guy for Lovecraft at this moment in time

    the problem lies in the fact del toro gets very personal with his films so you can't really say, "just needs to NOT touch the script" cause he totally would. Then again the ATMOM draft was an early one so we have no idea of what the final one could've been like
