THE CALL OF CTHULHU
Genre: Fantasy, Horror, Mystery
Director: Andrew Leman
The Sun Theatre in partnership with Chaosium Inc., publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, and the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society present:
The Call of Cthulhu (2005) and the “Making of…” featurette
Introduced in person by the HPLHS’s Sean Branney, producer and co-writer of Call of Cthulhu. Q&A to follow after the screening.
Written in 1926, just before the advent of “talking” pictures, The Call of Cthulhu is one of the most famous and influential tales of H.P. Lovecraft, the father of gothic horror. Now the story is brought richly to life in the style of a classic 1920s silent movie, with a haunting original symphonic score. Using the Mythoscope™ process — a mix of modern and vintage techniques, the HPLHS has worked to create the most authentic and faithful screen adaptation of a Lovecraft story yet attempted.
