HP Lovecraft will be featured in the season finale of the CW's Supernatural


In the upcoming two-part season finale of Supernatural on the CW,  HP Lovecraft is going to make an appearance in the double episode, which is called "The Haunter of the Dark." Lovecraft fans will note the similarity in title to Lovecraft's own story "The Haunter of the Dark." Hmmmm...

Actor Peter Ciuffa (pictured) is going to play HP Lovecraft himself, although it's not clear if this is going to be the "real" HP or just a character with the name. You may have seen Ciuffa (or you may not) in a few other sci-fi TV bit parts he's had, like playing an "angry parishoner" in V and a "driver" in Fringe.


HP Lovecraft's "The Haunter of the Dark" already has an interesting history because it was actually a sequel story to Robert Bloch's 1935 piece "The Shambler from the Stars." In "Shambler" Bloch killed off a character based on Lovecraft, which Lovecraft not only allowed him to do but was delighted about. He returned the favor by killing a character based on Bloch in "Haunter," the unsubtly named Robert Blake.

It doesn't end there. To round things out, in 1950 Bloch wrote a third story called "The Shadow from the Steeple" which is a sequel to Lovecraft's sequel, and in which Robert Blake's murder is investigated.

Yes, this can all get somewhat confusing.

Getting back on topic, the story "The Haunter of the Dark" is about a cult (surprise) that uses a "crazily angled stone" (surprise) called the Shining Trapezohedron that summons a terrible cosmic entity (surprise).  The entity has forbidden knowledge (surprise) that humans can learn only at a terrible cost (surprise).  It naturally enough takes place in Providence, Rhode Island (surprise).

The Supernatural episodes are going to air in May, so hopefully we'll find out more details about them soon and how much of the Lovecraft story they will/won't follow.
