Description
 
This "carefully devious and bewitching documentary" (Metro) stands out among the prestigious entries in the Century of Writers Series from Arte, partly because of the film's subject--H.P. Lovecraft. He thrilled countless readers by creating his own imaginative worlds and mythologies in books like the Necronomicon, The Call of Cthulhu, and At the Mountains of Madness, becoming a legend in the process. Disgusted by life, Lovecraft intentionally avoided reality when writing, veering into the unknown and inspiring the fear that lurks in nightmares. Directors Patrick Mario Bernard and Pierre Trividic respond with this unorthodox documentary that re-creates the atmosphere of claustrophobia, anxiety, and madness of Lovecraft's life and work. In French with English subtitles.

Patrick-Mario Bernard/Pierre Trividic---France---1998---45 mins.
