Eric’s Review: Black Goat Episode 1 – The 6000 Steps (2021) (HPLFF)

Eric’s Review: Black Goat Episode 1 – The 6000 Steps (2021) (HPLFF)

★★★★ out of ★★★★★

Destroy all Media has once again teamed up with The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society, and are in the process of developing a television series, Black Goat, for which they debuted the pilot at the H.P Lovecraft Film Festival. The Pilot episode drips with cultish dread and portends apocalyptic omens. The cosmic horror universe is ripe for development, and it will be fascinating to see who picks up the series.

Eric’s Review: The Whisperer in Darkness (2011) (H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival)

★★★★ out of ★★★★★

It is wholly appropriate that The Whisperer in the Darkness is an adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft story. As in Love + Craft. It is a lovingly and well-crafted period piece creation of Cosmic horror. Not only does the film take the look of the era when the story was written, but it also captures the film noir aesthetic in glorious shadowy black and white. If you like Cthulhu and cold walks in the rain, this is a movie for you!

Mike’s Review: The Last Matinee (Popcorn Frights 2021)

Mike’s Review: The Last Matinee (Popcorn Frights 2021)

★★★★ out of ★★★★★

The Last Matinee is a loving homage to film. More to the point it’s a loving homage and exploitation of Argento, Fulchi, grindhouse cinema, slashers, grimy movie theaters, and quite possibly the great Lamberto Bava film Demons. Don’t be fooled though. While The Last Matinee pulls from many of the classics, it’s got its own unique style and flavor, and it’s cram-packed with EYEBALLS.
