Although the work of cult horror writer H.P. Lovecraft has inspired several movies over the years, few have captured the unique spirit of his uncanny fiction. Enter the imaginative filmmakers who call themselves The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. Their cleverly conceived, beautifully crafted low-budget films capture the moods, myths, and even the era, of this reclusive American author. The Call of Cthulhu (2005, 47 minutes, written by Sean Branney, directed by Andrew Leman) realizes one of Lovecraft's most famous yarns as a silent film melodrama with atmospheric music. The Whisperer in Darkness (2011, 103 minutes, written by Branney and Leman and directed by Branney) is an "all-talking" suspense drama set in rural Vermont in the 1930s and involving folklore and alien invaders. Leman will be in attendance to present and discuss these captivating adaptations of Lovecraft's weird and wonderful stories.
