The Complete H.P. Lovecraft Filmography

A non fiction book by

The influence of science fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft is widely felt in modern literature-authors from Robert E. Howard to Stephen King can claim him as their ancestor. But cinema too has seen Lovecraft's impact, and author Charles Mitchell offers here a comprehensive guide to the dozens of films that are representative of this influence. He studies the films in detail, identifying the major Lovecraft elements and examining the fidelity of the films to the original work. Including pictures ranging from amateur work to foreign cinema, Mitchell's work suggests the difficulty in transcribing Lovecraft to the screen, while at the same time suggesting the potential of Lovecraft's work for future, quality screen adaptations.
