Free H.P. Lovecraft Documentary

Over at SnagFilms, you can watch a free documentary about the life and legacy of the great horror writer, H.P. Lovecraft. We’ve embedded a preview of Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown above–follow this link to watch the whole film.

The film traces Lovecraft’s influence on modern writers like Neil Gaiman (Coraline),  Caitlin Kiernan (“Daughter of Hounds”) and Peter Straub (“Ghost Story”).”

Here’s more about the documentary: “The influence of his Cthulhu mythos can be seen in film (Re-animator, Hellboy, and Alien), games (The Call of Cthulhu role playing enterprise), music (Metallica, Iron Maiden) and pop culture in general.  But what led an Old World, xenophobic gentleman to create one of literature’s most far-reaching mythologies?  What attracts even the minds of the 21st century to these stories of unspeakable abominations and cosmic gods?”
