Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned road comedy? Well, what happens when you cross that love with the dark magics of the all-powerful Cthulhu The Dark? That’s when you get The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu, an indie fantasy/comedy hitting DVD and VOD in the next week.
Here’s the basic synopsis:
Bored office drone Jeff (Kyle Davis, Friday the 13th) is informed by a mysterious elderly professor that he is the last living descendant of H.P. Lovecraft, the revered author of such horror/fantasy classics as The Shadow Over Innsmouth, Re-Animator and the Cthulhu Mythos stories. Jeff is thus the only person who can prevent a race of evil creatures (drawn from Lovecraft’s imagination) from wreaking havoc.
The mild-mannered Jeff must protect an ancient relic and prevent it from falling into the clutches of the monsters, which would bring about the release of all-powerful evil known as Cthulhu. Jeff enlists the aid of his co-worker Charlie (screenwriter and producer, Devin McGinn, Bones) and a husky Lovecraft aficionado, Paul (Barak Hardley, Greek), and together they put their slacker lives on hold to embark on an icky and hilarious mission to save the world.
Consider it The Hangover meets The Shadow Over Innsmouth, with a little Americana kick thrown in there. The DVD is set to hit shelves from Dark Sky Films on February 15th. In the meantime, check out the trailer after the jump.
