The Last Lovecraft Kicks off the Toronto After Dark Film Festival This Friday!

The good folks over at Dark Sky Films are getting the word out on The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu, the upcoming combination of horror and comedy chosen to kick off the Toronto After Dark Film Festival.

The flick was directed by Henry Saine and stars Kyle Davis, Devin McGinn and Barak Hardley. Kyle Davis (Friday the 13th, Men of a Certain Age) stars as Jeff, a bored guy stuck in a dead-end job whose life suddenly changes when a strange old man gives him an ancient relic and tells him he is the last descendant of H.P. Lovecraft, the revered American author of such horror/fantasy/sci-fi classics as The Dunwich Horror, The Shadow Over Innsmouth and the highly influential Cthulhu Mythos stories. Jeff and his friend Charlie embark on an adventure to protect the relic from falling into the hands of the Starspawn and his minions, who want to release the hideous cosmic entity Cthulhu back into the world.

Dig it this Friday, August 13th, at the Bloor Cinema at 7:00 PM. The first 250 attendees will take home Cthulhu masks courtesy of Dark Sky Films. Dig on this poster below to get you psyched!

    This film is a bucket of fun, great ideas and moments so ridiculous, you can’t help but to enjoy the ride. part way through, there is a great use of flash to tell the history of the old-ones that will have the crowd laughing and cheering, seriously, it doesn’t take it’s self seriously but it handles the material well. I’ve only seen this in a con setting, which it almost seems like it’s geared for. Not sure how it would hold up on a home viewing, but worth the watch for sure.
