The Cast of Cthulhu: The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu
Episode 69 – The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu (2009)
The Cast of Cthulhu goes low-budget for this episode to cover Slamdance alum, The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu. An intriguing premise is sabotaged by juvenile humor tinged with homophobia and hamstrung by a budget and scope so small that it never feels like there’s a threat to anything (other than good taste). Though the filmmakers were clearly tuned into Lovecraftian lore, they were out of touch with B-movie charm.
