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.

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

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...

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"!

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.

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.

Henry Saine is a gifted young director with a generous, self-deprecating - and riotous - sense of humor entertwined with comic-book horror, meaning you never actually have to look away. This movie nods to Lovecraft first, then to Spielberg, Disney and to Saine's own sense of reality - his delightful animations and illustrations steal the show. Saine borrows technique from the masters as the highest form of flattery, with great results - tongue planted stubbornly in cheek.

By the way, it's pronounced K-thu-lu.

Writer/producer/actor/jack-of-all Devin McGinn (Charlie) both writes and chews scenery effectively, and Kyle Davis (Jeff) is a sweet lead. Editing for comic moments by McGinn and Saine is spot on. Best parts are the encounter with Olaf the sea captain, accompanied by the pirate song sea shanty - performed by cast and crew - and the scene when Jeff and Charlie first encounter the sea monsters in their Mini Cooper. Just sit back and dig this. Pretend you're 13 again.
