Lovecraftian

Lovecraftian

Welcome, fearless viewer, to Lovecraftian, a season of films we found scrawled on a post-it note in the back of a Necronomicon holding open a fire exit at the Miskatonic University. All within are based on or take inspiration from the Rhode Island writer who was christened “Howard Phillips” - but is known across the cosmos by genre lovers as “H.P.” Lovecraft.
 
If it’s gothic horror, fantasy and/or science-fiction stories that will fill you full of cosmic dread and the sense that ordinary life is but a thin shell over a reality so alien and abstract that merely contemplating it will damage your sanity, then you’ve come to the right place!
