It took a while, but one of this year’s Slamdance films, director Henry Saine’s horror comedy The Last Lovecraft: The Relic of Cthulhu, has found distributors for both North America via MPI Media Group’s Dark Sky Films and internationally via Cinemavault.
The deal went down during the EFM in Berlin, and MPI plans an autumn theatrical release through its Dark Sky Films label followed by DVD and VOD in October. Kyle Davis, Devin McGinn, and Barak Hardley star; and McGinn wrote and produced.
“Both MPI and Cinemavault have proven time and again to be the ideal distributors for daring and independent movies, and we’re proud that The Last Lovecraft: Relic Of Cthulhu will join their formidable line-up of films,” said Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films on behalf of Outlaw Films.
“Jeff, a down on his luck office worker, finds out he is the last living relative of horror novelist H.P. Lovecraft. What he doesn’t know is that Lovecraft’s monsters are real and will soon threaten the very existence of mankind. Jeff and his best friend Charlie are forced to embark on a perilous adventure and they enlist the help of high school acquaintance, Paul, a self proclaimed Lovecraft specialist. Together the three unlikely heroes must protect an alien relic and prevent the release of an ancient evil, known as Cthulhu.”
