Since 1995, the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival has been the vanguard of independent Weird filmmaking. This is the ultimate list of Lovecraftian short and feature films that have played at the festival over many years. How many have you seen?
You may find some of the films on this list suprising, and some you may not think of as Lovecraftian at all. That's okay with us! Lovecraft was so influential in forming the face of modern horror and science fiction, we strive to show films that we think could only exist in a post-Lovecraft universe, or films that showcase the Uncanny, the Weird Tale, or Cosmic Horror, as well as films loosely or largely inspired by Lovecraft, his contemporaries (like Robert E. Howard, Robert Bloch, Frank Belknap Long), his forebears (like Lord Dunsany, Arthur Machen, and Edgar Allan Poe), and his literary descendants (like Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Ramsey Campbell). Overall, one of our main goals is to show films that we think Lovecraft fans would love, which means curating a wide variety, but with a narrow focus, of Horror, Science Fiction, and even Fantasy that has a certain Weird quality. We hope you'll enjoy!
