This film fest pays homage to master of gothic horror and sci-fi author H. P. Lovecraft, screening film adaptations of his work as well as the work of similar writers à la Edgar Allan Poe and Robert E. Howard in order to encourage more filmmakers to tackle the material. Throughout the weekend of literary horror, take in a literary lunch, test your Lovecraft trivia knowledge in a nearby pub and even LARP (live action role-play) in one of the writer's mysteries. And of course, don't miss the showings of eerie short films and features at the majestic Warner. Check the website for a full schedule of all happenings.
