Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown Movie Review
It’s not every day we get actual for-real documentaries out here, but when Wyrd Studios sent me a copy of their upcoming newest, Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown, I figured it was about time we branched out a tick.
This is a massive work about the life, times and career of widely known and widely read H.P. Lovecraft, and includes a vast trove of pictures and interviews with horror authors and other figures. When you see Neil Gaiman and Guillermo del Toro within five minutes of each other, you know you’re in for an absolute doozy.
Frankly, anyone with even the vaguest interest in the work of H.P. Lovecraft is going to be absolutely struck by this movie. You will learn anything and everything you’ve ever possibly wanted to know about H.P. Lovecraft, and most of it will likely amaze you.
Of course, if you DON’T have the vaguest interest in the work of H.P. Lovecraft, then this will have no use or hold no interest for you. It’s a shame that a movie so deep and so well researched will hold interest for only a relative handful of people.
However, the Screenhead Ten Scale never cares about marketing, and thus hands Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown an eight out of ten for being a great example of documentary work.
