Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slapstick not Deep One Mythos March 27, 2011
Format:DVD
If you're looking for a movie that follows Lovecraft's stories seriously than you are in the wrong place. If you are a hardcore Lovecraft nerd and want to watch a comedy/ action/ horror romp done by obvious Lovecraftians, than come on in. This is a low budget film following three friends on a modern day adventure. The effects are sub par, the writing is silly, and the acting is "take it or leave it" caliber. However in an odd way the film is charming and funny. Watch the trailer and it's hard to misinterpret what is in store for you. It's an idependant film done with a sense of love for the Lovecraft culture. In an era of bloated CGI movies with scripts written as a side thought it is nice to have movies come out that appeals to people with an off kilter sense of humor. By no means is this movie for everyone, in fact most people would not appreciate it, but for those it does strike a cord with, I say "huzzah"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank Your Elder Gods!... January 10, 2011
Format:DVD
LAST LOVECRAFT: RELIC OF CTHULHU is a great, low-budget horror / comedy in the same vein as SHAUN OF THE DEAD. It's like CTHULHU meets OFFICE SPACE (sort of). If you are a Lovecraft fanatic, then you'll love the many references to his work (I especially enjoyed the animated, comic book telling of the history of CTHULHU, THE SHOGGOTHS, and THE ELDER BEINGS!). A man named Jeff Phillips (Kyle Davis) finds out that he's the last living relative in the Lovecraft line. He's given a relic that must not fall into the hideous, flippery claws of the deep ones! Adventure ensues when Jeff and his workmate / friend, Charlie (David McGinn) join forces and enlist the aid of CTHULHU expert, Paul. Together, the trio risk life and fish-rape in order to stop the coming apocalypse of ultimate, tentacular doom! Highly recommended...

4.0 out of 5 stars ComicsOnline says March 21, 2011
Format:DVD
What do you do when members of you cult find half of a relic, that when joined with the other half, releases an indestructible force trapped beneath the ocean? And this force is named Cthulhu? You find the descendant of H. P. Lovecraft, of course.

That's what happens in The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu. Comic artist Jeff (Kyle Davis - Friday the 13th) is the last descendant of H. P. Lovecraft, and a Lovecraftian cult has found a relic and charged Jeff with the safekeeping of the object. While Jeff wants no part of this, bored buddy, and comic book aficionado Charlie (Devin McGinn - Universal Remote) embraces the task, and after recruiting high school geek Paul (Barak Hardley - Falling Overnight), our trio heads out to protect the relic. But not before the legend of the Cult of Cthulhu, is told in comic book form. It appears that the army of good guys, unable to slay Cthulhu, locked him away in a prison at the bottom of the ocean. The key was broken in two and the pieces hidden, and now Cthulhu's general, Starspawn (Ethan Wilde - Frankenstein & the Werewolf Reborn!), has one of the pieces, and is on the trail of the other. Now Jeff & Co. are headed to the desert to find the secret RV of the legendary sea hero, Captain Olaf (Gregg Lawrence - Troublemaker). Their voyage is dogged with kidnappings, and attacks by Starspawn and the aquatic demon army.

The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu is a horror, comedy in the vein of Army of Darkness. And like AoD, there is a story among the slapstick and humor. The only drawback is that there isn't a series of movies to base the characters on, but this could be jumping off point for both the actors and the franchise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great low budget Indie April 13, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This film is for Indie lovers. It is not a polished piece of work. The main cast is truely witty and funny. And cheers to the desert locked captian.

The only down part is the two old rusty veterans in the beginning who set up the story. The rest of the ride was enjoyable.

I can't wait to see what these 3 boys come up with next.

3.0 out of 5 stars A loving tribute to Call of Cthulhu gamers April 9, 2012
Format:DVD
It was only a matter of time before a fan film would use the same tropes common to many modern horror novels in the Lovecraftian vein -- that Howard Phillips (H.P.) Lovecraft's stories were actually thinly disguised reports of true events. What's surprising is how polished the final product is.

Directed by Henry Saine, The Last Lovecraft follows the travails of Jeff Philps (Kyle Davis) and his irascible roommate and coworker Charlie (Devin McGinn). When Professor Lake (Edmund Lupinski) appears heralding Jeff as the last of the Lovecraft line responsible for keeping an artifact safe from Cthulhu's minions, the duo don't believe him at first. It doesn't take long before the place is crawling with Deep Ones and Jeff and Charlie flee in a panic, leaving Lake to deal with General Starspawn (Ethan Wilde). Pursued by Starspawn and his minions, the two buddies look up Sheldon (Edward Flores) a self-proclaimed Lovecraft expert holed up in his grandmother's basement. Sheldon leads them to Innsmouth and Captain Olaf (Gregg Lawrence) thanks to a tourist map Sheldon acquired previously.

Throughout, clever comic book style flash animations, narrated by aspiring comic book artist Charlie, help explain the more esoteric aspects of Lovecraft's mythology, including Shoggoths, Deep Ones, and Elder Things (which, at one point, are mentioned as Old Ones, a bit of sloppy editing since Chaosium formalized their name as Elder Things but Lovecraft was by no means consistent).

It's pretty clear this film was made by Call of Cthulhu role-players. Dynamite figures prominently and there are several shout-outs to Dungeons & Dragons players, none of them complimentary.
