The freely adapted short story, written by the famous author H. P. Lovecraft, will reveal dreadfully poetic images to the viewer and give insight into a man’s struggle for survival and his fight against the loss of memory.
His spectacular escape from human creatures that live in the woods,who have lost all humanity and turned into animals, leads him directly to a mysterious house whose owner will very soon confront him with his mad rage. The subtle dialogues between the two of them, will end in a carnage.
At full tilt, the kinkiness of H.P Lovecraft’s short story transforms into the transparent struggle of survival of a man who has lost everything in this post-apocalyptic world, a world that slowly wipes him out.
