Jeff, a down on his luck office worker finds out he is the last living relative of horror novelist H.P. Lovecraft. What he doesn't know is that Lovecraft's monsters are real and will soon threaten the very existence of mankind. Jeff and his best friend Charlie are forced to embark on a perilous adventure and they enlist the help of high school acquaintance, Paul, a self proclaimed Lovecraft specialist. Together the three unlikely heroes must protect an alien relic and prevent the release of an ancient evil, known as Cthulhu.
A genuinely funny, offbeat horror-comedy in the vein of Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, this savvy tribute to the cosmic terrors of author H.P. Lovecraft is buoyed by amusing performances and a script that references the writer's complicated mythos without getting lost in the eldritch details. Kyle Davis (Men of a Certain Age) plays the title role, a hapless office worker who discovers that his bloodline to Lovecraft makes him humanity's last hope against the writer's most memorable creation, the monster-god Cthulhu, which prepares to return to Earth. With the help of his friends (cowriter-producer Devin McGinn and Barak Hardley) and the mysterious Captain Olaf (Gregg Lawrence), Jeff sets out to stop Cthulhu and his minions before it can reconstruct the artifact that will grant it limitless power. Lack of budget and star power doesn't hamper director Henry Saine from delivering a breezy, goofy comedy with a smattering of solid special effects and even a terrific, comic book-inspired animated sequence that does quite well at boiling down Lovecraft's elaborate mythology into a few slam-bang minutes. Saine, Davis, and McGinn also deliver an enjoyable commentary track as part of the extras, which also include an animatic for the "origins" sequence, an extended scene, and the original theatrical trailer. --Paul Gaita

The movie is a fun romp with quite a few laughs.
I'm sorry to be so negative about this movie but this effort is an insult to Lovecraft. Technically the movie is well enough made. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Peter McNeil
For a indie flick without much of a budget, this movie kicked butt. I love Cthulhu related stuff. This had quite a bit and was never taking itself too seriously. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Chad
