Flying Lobsters to Invade Cambridge

Whisperer in DarknessSo, it looks like we were ahead of the trend when, in our latest issue, we featured an essay about independent films based on the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. Today, featured one of these films, The Whisperer in Darkness, as its pick of the week.

We projected scenes from that film at our release party back in June. If you missed our screening (and live in the Boston area), take heart. The Brattle Theater in Cambridge will be hosting an H.P. Lovecraft Birthday Tribute from August 17 to August 19. In addition to The Whisperer in Darkness, the Brattle will also be featuring From Beyond, The Dunwich Horror, and In the Mouth of Madness.

If you haven’t read it yet, be sure to check out Brian R. Hauser’s “Call of the Cult Flick” in our current issue. Hauser takes the reader on a journey to the Lovecraft Film Festival and delves deep into the cultural significance these cinematic horror stories. The piece also features jaw-dropping drawings by New Orleans illustrator Harriet “Happy” Burbeck.
