    I have been to most of the festivals and even dress up as Cthulhu for them but with a new baby girl (who has her own Cthulhu onesie) I wasn’t able to afford tickets this year. I would love to win some!

    I’ve never seen a Lovecraft film. Think it’s time?

  27. Steven May 2, 2013 at 9:51 am #

    The writer in me yearns for a chance to experience this beautiful event of inspiration. You don’t want to deny him, do you?

  28. Renata Chmielowski May 2, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    Have a new boyfriend I can cuddle up to during the shows… or freak the bejebus out off. Need to know these things.

  29. Amy May 2, 2013 at 3:17 pm #

    I neeeed these tickets! My 13 year old came home from school wanting to watch a scary movie, so we watched Lost Boys. Afterward, she whined, “Mom! Seriously! All of my friends are talking about the scary movies they’ve seen. I need to see a really scary movie!” I pitched Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to her, and got, “Oh my God, mom” in return.

    I started her on scary books instead of movies, and the HPL Fests’ movie picks this year would thrill her! Also, it would be badass for me to get out of homework and work work! “I fear my enthusiasm flags when real work is demanded of me.”

    I have ALWAYS wanted to go to this film fest but am always too broke! I’d love to get a chance to finally attend.

  32. Dayan May 2, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to go to this festival for several years – this would be a great way to spend the weekend!
