The Ordeal of Randolph Carter

“The Statement of Randolph Carter” is one of my favorite Lovecraft stories. It encompasses  his style in a tidy little nutshell of dread. It even inspired a short – very short – film of my own. But here is a quite different take on the tale by Grieg Johnson and Chris Lackey – the latter being one of the hosts of the H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast. Check it out.

‘Colour’ Me Cautiously Optimistic: ‘Hardware’ Director to Adapt HPL

Richard Stanley, director of such 90’s genre mainstays like, ‘Hardware’ and ‘Dust Devil’ is now stepping up to the eldritch plate to take a swing at Lovecraft’s, ‘The Colour Out of Space’.

REVIEW: ‘Conjoined’

A couple of the hardest things to do in filmmaking are comedy and horror. It’s right up there with creating a billion-dollar blockbuster or dealing with anyone whose initials are Lindsay Lohan. There is a delicate alchemy in the creation of each that is unique to the individual. Fortunately, both genres give you broad targets to shoot at… and if no subject is taboo, then your chances are hitting the mark are much greater.

REVIEW: ‘The Casebook of Eddie Brewer’

Feel free to call me crazy now, but a long time ago – when I was far more fearless and impulsive than I am now – I had a brief interaction with a ghost. The girl I was living with at the time said she had suspected there was one living in our house. So, one day – after scant few preparations – I set out to talk to it, to help it move on. I thought I was being nice. So, long story short, I asked it to let me know if it was there. Immediately I felt a tingling on my upper arms, as if someone had laid their hands on me. It was a bit of a surreal moment; one I couldn’t help thinking of while watching
