In one of those odd coincidences, I learned that Michael Hurst, best
known to US audiences as Hercules' sidekick Iolaus, is something of an
H.P. Lovecraft fan. I was watching one of my favorite episodes of
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, a segment called Mercenary, which
Hurst directed. I was listening to the audio commentary and there's a
scene where Hercules and his prisoner, the titular mercenary, are trying
to escape from some manta ray like creatures that live under the sand.
They climb onto some half buried ruins to get away from the monsters and
out of the blue, Hurst mentions that he shot the scene from a low level
to give the buildings a strange look, "Like something from H.P.
Lovecraft, like the geometry wasn't of this world."
