The Last Lovecraft to Appear in February

Saturday, January 1, 2011

Dark Sky Films has announced that their horror comedy The Last Lovecraft will be released to the world on February 15, 2011. The movie has been in the works for the last few years, and it made the rounds at a number of film festivals in 2010, picking up favorable reviews along the way. Dark Sky's latest production fully embraces Lovecraftian horror's funny side, beginning with an unlikely premise and a slapstick adventure:

Jeff, a down on his luck office worker finds out he is the last living relative of horror novelist H.P. Lovecraft. What he doesn't know is that Lovecraft's monsters are real and will soon threaten the very existence of mankind. Jeff and his best friend Charlie are forced to embark on a perilous adventure and they enlist the help of high school acquaintance, Paul, a self proclaimed Lovecraft specialist. Together the three unlikely heroes must protect an alien relic and prevent the release of an ancient evil, known as Cthulhu.

This is the latest in a series of plots that blend Lovecraft's infamous Mythos with realistic settings and characters. As a product of HPL's newer fan circles, it will surely appeal to that base, but its humor may also touch broader fandoms not necessarily into Lovecraft. The Last Lovecraft is already available for pre-order from Amazon. Reserve your DVD before stock runs dry and a second run is required.
