With director Guillermo del Toro just going into pre-production on the James Cameron produced At the Mountains of Madness, it looks as if we are about to see the rising of an H.P. Lovecraft renaissance. Kick-starting the revival will be The Last Lovecraft, starring Kyle Davis (Friday the 13th), Devin McGinn (Bones), Barak Hardley, and Martin Starr (Adventureland).
Description: This hilarious and affectionate love-letter to Lovecraft tells the tale of Jeff (Davis), an ordinary guy, stuck in a dead end job, who discovers he is the last living relative of the famous horror novelist.
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 (McGinn) are forced to embark on a perilous adventure and they enlist the help of high school acquaintance Paul (Hardley), 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.
H.P. Lovecraft (Aug, 1890- March 15, 1937) was an American author of horror fantasy and science fiction, especially the subgenre known as weird fiction. He penned the classics – The Call of Cthulhu, The Shadow Out of Time and At The Mountains of Madness.
The Last Lovecraft is directed by Henry Saine and is scheduled for release in late January, early February from MPI Home Video.
