Why hasn't anybody made a Cthulhu movie yet?

I know they made that silent movie about him a few years ago, and it was good for what it was. But I mean a movie with color and sound and everything.

He's public domain so they shouldn't have to pay anyone for the rights to use him.

There was a movie in 2007 called "Cthulhu". I have no idea if he was actually in it, though.

There are actually movies made about Lovecraftian lore all the time. They just unfortunately are all direct to video.

Also, I think that skin book from Evil Dead was made by a Cthulhu worshiper
