October 5-8 HP Lovecraft Film Festival

I don't like horror films much. Really at all. I have been lucky to have been only on the periphery of a few real politically motivated horrors. Comparatively, celluloid horror is thin. So for me this is just one of those Portland oddities: the annual H.P. Lovecraft film festival. Lovecraft was a brilliant sad writer - look back through my old posts for history. This festival pairs John Carpenter's "The Thing" with a new, filmed in Astoria, "Cthulhu". I don't know if Cthulhu actually appears in the film. The details are at as well as all the times and admission prices.
