HP Lovecraft film festival

Post  Mrs. Sullivan on Mon Oct 06, 2008 3:56 am

So Mr. S & I attended the HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, OR this weekend.

The film festival was pretty good - as always, the films are a mixed bag. The feature film I saw ("Dark Paradox") was a bit cheesy. There were some good short films - "AM 1200", "Casting Call of Cthulhu", "Eel Girl", "The Amazing Screw On Head", "The Outsider". We ran into Mr. & Mrs. Crowe on Fri. night, and again on Saturday, & had a pretty good Chinese dinner together during the evening break. I bought a couple of graphic novels, one Cthulhu - oriented, the other kinda steampunk (about a plague in Victorian England) called "Jenny Finn - Doom Messiah" by Mike Mignola & others.

Mike Mignola (creator of "Hellboy") was quite a presence at the film festival, and got the "Howie" award this year. They showed his "Hellboy" movie, 2 "Hellboy" short animated films, and "The Amazing Screw-On Head" short animation. Author Brian Lumley was also there to receive an award & sign autographs, and of course the Great Cthulhu made a personal appearance.

It's a fun festival, and I recommend it to anyone who likes horror movies and/ or H.P. Lovecraft. Bring your own pillow though - your rear end will thank you!

(PS- I wore my steampunk gear both days and got lots of compliments on my outfits and my home made goggles).

Regards,
Mrs. S.

Sounds like fun...to bad it's on the left coast, and not the right.
