Cosmic Lovecraft horror novel 'Horror in the Clouds' unleashes

14 August 2017 6:11 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

MoreHorror.com

We're definitely fans of Lovecraft horror stories here at MoreHorror and the Lovecraft universe in general.

Lovecraft fans are pretty particular with film adaptations let alone adding to his beloved universe. The Cloverfield films have proven it can be done and embraced on film if executed properly.

Writer Scott Shoyer is attempting to go down that road with his new novel, Horror in The Clouds from Severed Press. It will be ultimately up to fans to decide if they are open to the idea of introducing "a new breed of Elder Gods", (is that an oxymoron?) into the Lovecraft universe. If anyone can pull it off, it would seem that Shoyer is primed for it.

Check out all the details about the book from the official press release below.

What Happened? A Look At Several High Profile Films That Were Never Made!

1 August 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

(Aotn) Ever wonder what happened to several high profile projects that various well-known directors were said to be helming, but somehow have never seen the light of day? Many of these films were either “pet projects” for the directors or they ended up getting tied up in so many legal battles that eventually they were just scrapped or the director ended up simply walking away.

The wonderful folks over at IndieWire have complied a fantastic list compiling several of these films that have yet to see the light of day from directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Kathryn Bigelow, Christopher Nolan and more!

First up is director Christopher Nolan’s rumored Howard Hughes biopic. In several interviews Nolan called the script for the film “the best he had ever written”, in fact, the film was even picked by Castle Rock in 2002 and actor Jim Carrey was attached to star. So, just where did things go wrong? »

Class of 1987: Fulci Goes Farming in The Curse

6 July 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Time can be a hell of a drug, especially when it comes to the projected image. There’s an inherent danger in revisiting a film we have fond memories of; is it as good as we recall? Conversely, can a film improve after an initial viewing, one that perhaps was initially dismissed with a shrug and a wave of the hand? Case in point: actor David Keith’s directorial debut, The Curse (1987), a film that inspired nothing in me beyond guffaws 30 years ago. But that was then; now it inspires a sense of awe, because if you’ve ever wondered what an American-flavored Lucio Fulci film would look like, clear a spot in your collection for the class clown of the Class of ’87.

Producer Ovidio G. Assonitis is no stranger to fans of the genre; if you’ve seen Beyond the Door (1974), Tentacles (1977), or The Visitor (1979), then you know he »

‘The Untamed’ Trailer: Discover the Summer’s Best Sci-Fi Film

27 June 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Mexican director Amat Escalante has cultivated for himself a controversial, often shockingly violent niche, and his newest film The Untamed looks to be no exception. Co-winner of the Silver Lion for best director at last year’s Venice Film Festival, the mysterious film has been described in many ways, including a riff on Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession, and deals equally with science-fiction horror and taboo sexuality, a co-existence united by Escalante’s disorienting, visceral style. Strand Releasing has picked up the film for a late-summer release, and has just put out a new trailer.

The Untamed does that very rare thing in cinema in that it blends mystery, horror and pseudo-reality with a kind of dark subconscious arousal,” we said in our review. “In this way it recalls the auteur directors previously mentioned here, but also the eerie ethereal science fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. All this might lead you to »

Forbidden Tomes: Vast Beauty – The Cosmic Poeticism of Clark Ashton Smith

23 June 2017 2:49 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When one thinks of cosmic literature, one typically imagines H.P. Lovecraft and the Necronomicon. Lovecraft himself drew inspiration from his peers, however, and he was particularly close friends and creative kin with a man named Clark Ashton Smith, a pulp storyteller, sculptor, and insane poet. Smith’s writing is mythical in its intense depictions of colorful worlds, heinous gods, and unending darkness; and the myths are all Smith’s inventions. He creates his own universe through the originality of his visions in a way that Lovecraft does not.

As in Lovecraft, Smith invents a few deities for his worlds, such as Thasaidon, the Lord of Evil, and the Biblical grimoire The Book of Eibon. Yet Smith reaches a mythical strangeness that Lovecraft never aimed for. Lovecraft’s work created tears in our reality and minds, and while some of Smith’s stories take place in a recognizable world, many of »

Herbert West: Re-Animator set as web-series, TV series and feature film

18 June 2017 1:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Italian indie filmmaker Ivan Zuccon has been speaking to Coming Soon about his upcoming project Herbert West: Re-Animator, a new take on the H.P. Lovecraft story which is set to be presented as a web-series, TV series and finally a feature film. Here’s the teaser poster, followed by Zuccon’s comments below…

“Herbert West: Re-Animator is a modular project. We start with a web series, them we’ll have a TV series and at the end of the journey we’ll have a feature film. The web series is currently in post-production and we  are going to release it by the end of the summer. It’s a very ambitious project. Of course I know that Gordon and Yuzna made great movies on the same subject but I am crazy enough to try to find a different way, a more personal one, and tell the story with a very different angle. »

Q&A: Graves Creator Terence Krey Reflects on First Two Seasons of the Supernatural Web Series & Teases Season 3

1 June 2017 9:13 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For a group of friends in the web series Graves, the only thing more horrifying than turning thirty in their hometown is the resurgence of literal demons from their past. A potently funny and heartfelt blend of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Todd & The Book of Pure Evil, and its own original spin on the horror and drama genres, Graves just finished up a stellar second season, and we had the pleasure of catching up with the web series' creator, Terence Krey, for our latest Q&A to discuss the first two seasons of his show and his plans for a third and final season.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Terence, and congratulations on a really fun first two seasons of Graves. When did you first come up with the idea for this web series?

Terence Krey: Thank you! It makes me very happy that people like the show, »
