The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu

2009. Directed by Henry Saine.

There have been countless attempts at trying to bring the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft to the big screen, and with notable exceptions they have mostly failed. It was a shocking, genuine surprise that this low budget, not even a B movie was able to accomplish the task.

The Last Lovecraft is not a great film, but it is special. Made by fans for fans, it's a low budget straight to dvd horror comedy that touches all the right notes for anyone who knows what/who Cthulhu is.

Jeff is in a dead end job when suddenly he learns that he is the last descendant of Lovecraft and must guard a relic to keep the evil Cthulhu from awakening. He sets off with his best friend and former high school bookworm to find Captain Olaf, the only person who has experience with the Cult of Cthulhu that are pursuing.

With cheap effects, hilariously awkward dialogue, and an oddly touching story, The Last Lovecraft is fanboy's love note to the master of horror that doesn't disappoint. It's a creative, garage film and I loved every minute of it.

A definite must for fans of Lovecraft and low budget horror.
