I think I'm going to watch John Carpenter's "The Thing". Apparently it's partially inspired by Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness".

It's an interesting question. I'm sure pressures have been around for a long time, but I guess it's just that we only really see the 'winners' from 20 years ago, but everything from 2013.
Yeah, it's probably a lot of that. We don't see the bad 1970's movies anymore... unless they've become "camp classics" :-)

The pressures have certainly been around for a long time, but they may be more or less strong at different times, and of course depending on how and where you make a movie.
