If you missed the Portland edition of the Lovecraft Film Festival, or if you simply can’t get enough Lovecraft, the Lovecraft Film Festival Los Angeles is here for you. Tickets are now on sale for two days of mayhem (September 28-29).
This year’s Los Angeles festival is going with a cartoon theme: In addition to the weird shorts and features, there will be a special animated block featuring South Park (South Park: The Coon Trilogy) and Scooby-Doo (Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated episode “The Shrieking Madness”). Plus, one of the guests this year is Michael Reaves, who penned the classic 1987 episode of The Real Ghostbusters entitled “The Collect Call of Cathulhu”, marking Cthulhu’s television debut.
Our very own Bryan Thao Worra will be covering the festival. Will you be there too?
The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival promotes the works of American science fiction and horror author H.P. Lovecraft through motion pictures by both professionals and amateurs, current and classic, national and international. The festival was founded in 1995 by Andrew Migliore in Portland, Oregon to promote and encourage film and television adaptations of Lovecraft’s great works and other, similar weird-tale writers, such as Edgar Allan Poe, M.R. James and Robert E. Howard.
