Now celebrating its third year at the historic Hollywood Theatre in Portland, the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival (October 9-12) was created to promote the works of legendary author H.P. Lovecraft through cinematic adaptations by student, amateur and professional filmmakers from around the world.
This year’s special guests include:
Actor Jeffrey Combs (“Re-Animator,” “The Frighteners,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Enterprise”).
Author/Scholar S.T. Joshi, author of such critical studies as The Weird Tale and H.P. Lovecraft: A Life.
Actor Jack Donner (“Exorcism,” “Stigmata,” “Cool Air,” “Star Trek”)
Musical Guests Land of the Blind and Amoree Lovell
This year’s films include Brian Yuzna’s “Beyond Re-Animator” and “Necronomicon,” Ivan Zuccon’s Italian horror film “The Shunned House,” the comedic “Unnameable II: The Statement of Randolph Carter,” the rarely seen “Dark Heritage,” the first ever animated adaptation of “The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath,” and over a dozen new short films (including another short by famous illustrator Richard Corben). There will also be merchants, discussion panels, music, secret screenings, and a special retrospective of the films from the past 10 Festivals.
