RIP H.P. Lovecraft

H.P. Lovecraft died today in 1937.  He is one of my favorite horror story creators and truly mastered his craft.  I am going to post some of his audio books and stories based on his works so you can watch them and enjoy them this weekend!

This is, of course the basis for The ReAnimator Series as well as the basis for The Resurrected aka Shatterbrain.  The ReAnimator is available on Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video as well as on Vudu.  
The Resurrected aka Shatterbrain is available on Vudu as well as Amazon Instant Video.  You can find the appropriate links in the post below if you are interested in renting either of them.  
OVGuide.com also has the appropriate links listed here.  Its a handy little guide for finding free movies and where to rent ones that aren't free.

Its gonna take you to another post on my blog I had previously written, because if you often read my blog, you know what a fangirl I am!

Here, you just hit the mother-load, because you can watch The H.P. Lovecraft Documentary, Fear of the Unknown by clicking here as well as
Late Bloomer - the Short Film - from The Sundance Film Festival
Late Bloomer is a compelling and humorous short film about 7th grade sex ed class gone horribly wrong, which is loosely based on the dark tales of H.P. Lovecraft.
It received the 

Audience Award for Best Short Film at the Lake Placid Film Festival

Best Short Film at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival

In the aforementioned post, you can also watch 
And I have yet more up my sleeve, mo foes...

You can watch the film adaptation of  

The Call of the Cthulhu (2005) -  The sailors aboard the Emma first encounter the Alert abandoned at sea, rather than crewed by Cthulhu cultists and taken over by Emma's crew after a violent confrontation as in the original story. Additionally, the film depicts the narrator present at the time of his great-uncle's death, who dies peacefully in his sleep, rather than being summoned upon the mysterious death of his great-uncle, who was presumably killed by Cthulhu cultists in the original short story.

The narrator notes as well that Inspector Legrasse, who had directed the raid on cultists in backwoods Louisiana, had died before the narrator's investigation began.
In the original story, the narrator does not seem to end in a lunatic asylum or experience any mysterious nightmares himself.  Its shot in black and white and given the mood as if it was shot long ago despite the fact that its a relatively "new" film.

To view this free, short (47 minutes) Lovecraft-based flick click here.

Lastly, you can check out Masters of Horror's (mini movie short) - Lovecraft's Dreams in the Witch House (watch it here, free.)
