Everything, with rare exception, is better with tentacles.
With that in mind, it pleases me to no end to announce that the fine folks at DOA Bloodbath, who already host three great genre film festivals (Pretty Scary, Fears for Queers and the namesake Bloodbath) here in Dallas, have added another one to their schedule and yes, this one comes with tentacles.
The First Annual Unnameable Blood Bath Film Festival will take place at the Texas Theater on August 20th, the author’s birthday. The idea for the additional festival came to DOA Bloodbath organizer Andrew Rose at this past weekend’s Underground Horror II Festival in Tulsa, OK, while talking with Craig Mullins, who runs Unfilmable.com, a site dedicated to Lovecraftian films. “The subject… came up and it hit me: what Dallas needs is a Lovecraft festival and there’d be no better place than the Texas Theatre.”
Festival organizers are currently looking for feature-length or short films based upon or inspired by the works of Lovecraft. Deadline for entries is June 30th. More information will be available soon at http://www.doabloodbath.com (no longer active) or on their Facebook page.
