The Innsmouth Free Press has a great interview with The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu director Henry Saine, and among the tidbits he dropped is that if things go well with this one, we can expect two more Lovecraft movies in the future. Writer/producer/actor Devin McGinn already knows (somewhat) what they'd be about:
Devin has written a loose outline for a trilogy. Depending how well Last Lovecraft does will determine if there’s a sequel. Due to the great response of Captain Olaf at our festival run, I’m pretty sure Captain’s Olaf’s salty twin brother, who’s been lost at sea, will make an appearance.If you're not familiar with the film, here's the official description:
Bored office drone Jeff (Kyle Davis, Friday the 13th) is informed by a mysterious elderly professor that he is the last living descendant of H.P. Lovecraft, the revered author of such horror/fantasy classics as The Shadow Over Innsmouth, Re-Animator and the Cthulhu Mythos stories. Jeff is thus the only person who can prevent a race of evil creatures (drawn from Lovecraft’s imagination) from wreaking havoc. The mild-mannered Jeff must protect an ancient relic and prevent it from falling into the clutches of the monsters, which would bring about the release of all-powerful evil known as Cthulhu. Jeff enlists the aid of his co-worker Charlie (screenwriter and producer, Devin McGinn, Bones) and a husky Lovecraft aficionado, Paul (Barak Hardley, Greek), and together they put their slacker lives on hold to embark on an icky and hilarious mission to save the world. Along the way, they get some help from an a sea captain with a fish-boy son – and discover that Lovecraft’s horrific monsters, including a T-shirt-wearing reptile man, are far from fictional.
Part road movie, part buddy movie in the vein of Superbad and The Hangover, THE LAST LOVECRAFT: RELIC OF CTHULHU is also a supremely creepy tribute to H.P. Lovecraft. No less an authority than Stephen King called him “the 20th century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.” Lovecraft’s tales of Cthulhu and other stories have spawned movies, books, toys, games, apparel and collectibles.
This one is already on my Netflix list. If you've seen it already, drop a note in the comments and let us all know what you thought.
