In the days after World War II, the dark and somber motifs of Lovecraft’s writings resonated with the Japanese. From that, a new generation of Japanese artists began to combine the Mythos with traditional folklore creating something truly unique in the world of supernatural story telling. The team from The People’s Guide to the Cthulhu Mythos explore Lovecraft in Japanese horror movies, anime, and manga. With David Heath, DB Spitzer, Gretchen Martin, and special guest Kenneth Hite
