We’ve got our hands on the new festival poster for Henry Saine’s horror comedy The Last Lovecraft: Relic Of Cthulhu, which premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival opposite Sundance before being acquired by MPI Media/Dark Sky Films. 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, although we’ve yet to hear of any updates. We’ll keep you posted.
“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 ancient evil, known as Cthulhu.”
