If you wanted to see a new adaptation of “The Dunwich Horror” (It’s been filmed twice before, to bad and worse effect), now may be your chance. The folks at Ororo Productions are trying to raise money through Kickstarter to do just that. They hope the completed product will debut at the London Horror Festival.
If you pledge money, you get a personal thank-you telegram. Virtual, though, since telegrams have gone the way of the buggy. Ororo also has a Facebook page you can visit.
Speaking of Lovecraft and movies, the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival is just around the corner. It takes place September 16-17, 2011, at the Warner Grand, San Pedro, California. We interviewed the festival organizer earlier this year.
There will also be a mini-festival September 30-October 1 to celebrate the return of the festival to Portland next year.
The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival promotes the works of H.P. Lovecraft, literary horror and weird tales through cinematic adaptations by professional and amateur filmmakers. Held for over fifteen years in Portland, Oregon, the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival had to leave Portland this year, but is returning in full to its original location on May 2012. The satellite Los Angeles festival will likely continue to exist, too.
