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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
