Some exciting news out of the EFM as MPI Media Group has acquired all North American rights to and Cinemavault has boarded international sales on Henry Saine’s horror comedy The Last Lovecraft: Relic Of Cthulhu, which premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival opposite Sundance in Park City, Utah last month. Henry Saine directed the tale of a young man who learns he is the last descendant of the occult writer H P Lovecraft and must protect an ancient relic from falling into the wrong hands. MPI plans an autumn theatrical release through its Dark Sky Films label followed by DVD and VOD in October after executive vice-president Greg Newman negotiated the deal with Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films on behalf of Outlaw Films. Watch the trailer exclusively on BD below.
“In the film Jeff, a down on his luck office worker, finds out he is the last living relative of horror novelist H.P. Lovecraft. 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 are forced to embark on a perilous adventure and they enlist the help of high school acquaintance, Paul, a self proclaimed Lovecraft specialist. Together the three unlikely heroes must protect an alien relic and prevent the release of an acient evil, known as Cthulhu.”
