    It’s time to embrace the darkness. Darkness is part of life and it can be joyous.

    It was only a few years ago that I was introduced to the mastery of HP Lovecraft’s literary genius and have been fascinated ever since. I am even more enticed by you offering the music of a heavy metal band. Sci-fi and metal; I barely think of a more enjoyable experience

    As I attempt to comment on this fortuitous article, I’m still afflicted by that hideous, uncorporeal presence lurking in the most tenebrous corner of my non-Euclidean apartment. Into the sputtering lamplight it whispers unholy yet fascinating narratives, like a Cinématographe of shadows, impelling me to leave so that it can freely and fully insinuate itself unto this realm. My febrile eagerness rises. I will obey. I must ATTEND!

  23. Lee Widener October 2, 2018 at 5:28 pm #

    Oh, I love the HPLFF! Have been several times- but this year I’m too poor to go! Lovecraft was a great inspiration to me! Please pick me!!!!

  24. Patrick October 2, 2018 at 7:53 pm #

    There’s no better way to spend the weekend:) I love everything about this

  25. Arturo Calilung October 2, 2018 at 11:38 pm #

    Been a fan of H.P. Lovecraft since I found out he was allergic to seafood (hence all the tentacled monsters from the deep). I would really love to see this festival, please send me there!

  26. Rachael Cooper October 2, 2018 at 11:42 pm #

    I’d love to see this master of horror’s influence: From The Mountains of Madness, Dagon, to the infamous Call of Cthulu, I would love to see this film festival to kick off Halloween month!

    My febrile eagerness rises. I will obey- I must ATTEND!
