Cthulhu Grabs a Video Camera

Films arcane, weird, creepy and outright terrifying will travel from around the world to Providence to celebrate the profound influence of PVD author HP Lovecraft, whose work terrified in relative obscurity during his lifetime (1890-1937) and became an inspiration for everyone from Stephen King to Wes Craven to Guillermo del Toro to … the list is nearly endless.

This festival will feature weirdness, vendors, art and readings, but most of all, films both long and short (much like the tentacles of Lovecraft’s most famous creation, the aeons-old dweller of the deep named Cthulhu.

The HP Lovecraft Film Festival is three days of macabre film fun curated by the larger, 20-year-old annual Lovecraft Film Festival from Portland, Ore, (so the best of the creepiest) and spawned by the local Lovecraft Arts & Sciences, which runs the store by the same name in the PVD Arcade and creates the bi-annual NecronomiCon festival. It runs Aug 17 – 19, but may stay with you for all eternity, with screenings at RISD Museum’s Metcalf Auditorium, 20 N Main St, Fri 5 – 10pm, Sat noon – 9pm, Sun noon – 5pm.
