The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival® in Portland, OR has been the vanguard of independent horror filmmaking, with a cosmic or Weird twist, for more than 20 years. Now you can attend in spirit, with this selection of short films from the 22nd Annual festival in 2017!
This may be the best collection yet, with incredible works like "Wattmarck" from Austria, inspired by both "The Music of Erich Zann" and electronica of the 80s/90s (critics have called it "H. P. Lovecraft meets Kraftwerk", and they're not wrong), and the amazing "Sound From The Deep" which lovingly and expertly incorporates the mythology of Lovecraft's "At The Mountains of Madness" into a modern adventure revolving around scientists looking for gas deposits in melting ice fields. You'll finally see, on screen, the underwater cities of the Elder Things, and the ultimate Shoggoth horror!
With explorations to the darkest corners of the earth to humourous takes on the Cthulhu Mythos, and from research on the effects of certain soundwaves on the human mind to the crushing burden of forbidden knowledge, this collection has something for every Lovecraft fan.
