H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon Keeps Portland Weird
The 16th annual H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival (HPLFF) and CthulhuCon returns to the Hollywood Theatre at 4122 NE Sandy Blvd. September 30th – October 1st. This frighteningly entertaining event celebrates film and literature influenced by the master of cosmic horror, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, with two nights of horror, fantasy, and science fiction.
“I look forward to the H.P. Lovecraft Festival all year,” said Dark Horse Senior Managing Editor Scott Allie. “It’s a great time for everyone who loves horror–the actually strange, scary stuff–to load up on hard-to-find film, fiction, comics, and other works of art. The Fest helps keep Portland weird.”
Friday night 9/30, HPLFF is proud to present the Portland-area premier of The Whisperer in Darkness, the exciting follow up to the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society's award-winning film, The Call of Cthulhu. Saturday night 10/1, we are thrilled to bring you Die Farbe, a German adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's weird tale, The Colour Out of Space.
Short films include Call of Nature, Doppelganger, Flush With Fear, Dirty Silverware, Edgar Allan Poe's ¬ËœThe Raven', Window Into Time, Haselwurm, Black Goat, Static Aeons, Shadow of the Unnamable, The Ritual, Idol Worship, and Apartment Eleven.
Sigh Co. Graphics owners, Brian and Gwen Callahan have taken the reins from festival founder, Andrew Migliore. ¬Å“The plan is to move the full three day festival to mid-May. We didn't want to leave everyone hanging until then, so we decided there needed to be a festival in 2011. This one is going to be back to basics, a block of short films and one feature each night. The quality of film submissions just keeps getting better, so we're really excited about this year's selections!¬Â
Doors open at 6 p.m. Friday, September 30th and 6:30 p.m. Saturday, October 1.
Prior to the films both days, join us for a meet & greet with guests and film makers at Magnolia's Corner Wine Bar from 4-6 pm. After the films on both Friday and Saturday nights, attendees will retire to Tony Starlight's Supper Club and Lounge for special Lovecraftian beverages and a chance to mingle with film makers and friends.
