This short trailer will give you a little taste of Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown – the 2008 documentary that’s now fully available online. Named the Best Documentary at the 2008 Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival, the film revisits the life and writings of H.P. Lovecraft, the father of modern horror fiction. And it features important contemporary artists (from filmmakers John Carpenter and Guillermo Del Toro to writers along the lines of Neil Gaiman), all talking about Lovecraft’s influence on their dark fantasy tradition. You can watch the entire 90 minute film on SnagFilms, or find it listed in Open Culture’s ever-growing collection: 275 Free Movies Online.
