H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival Celebrates 20th Anniversary

The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival plans to screen nearly 40 films during this year’s 20th anniversary festival, beginning Friday, October 2nd through Sunday, October 4th. 

The festival is a short and feature-length film extravaganza that pays tribute to H.P. Lovecraft, a posthumously celebrated, American author of horror stories. 

Lovecraft is known for his dark and fantastical style, and his tale “The Call of Cthulhu,” helped define the genre of horror/gothic fiction in the twentieth century. 

Without a doubt, H.P. Lovecraft and his ilk would be proud of the festival’s lineup that features innovative and mind-twisting stories from around the globe. 

In fact, many of the films featured will be making their world premiere at the festival. 

“Awakenings,” a 13-minute adaption of Henry James’ psychological thriller, “The turn of the Screw,” will give viewers an Indian version of the story of two children who may or may not be possessed by the spirit of former caretakers. 

Meanwhile, the film “Tesla vs Cthulhu: The Nightmare of Desolation Sound” will also make its world premier as it depicts the experience of survivors of an ill-fated expedition in British Columbia. 

To read more about the rest of the films that will be screening, please click HERE.

In addition to film screenings, the festival will offer panel discussions, author readings, art competitions, vendors, and live performers.

See below for a list of some of the highlights we’re looking forward to at 2015’s H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival.
