H.P. Lovecraft Anthology Series Being Developed by Legendary TV — Report

20 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

H.P. Lovecraft’s influence can be felt in countless writers, musicians and artists who’ve followed in the “weird fiction” exemplar’s footsteps, but the author’s work has rarely been directly adapted. Bleeding Cool reports that this may soon change, as Legendary TV is said to be answering the call of Cthulhu and creating an anthology series based on 16 of Lovecraft’s best-known works.

Per the report, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott will serve as producers on the show — the first to receive the Lovecraft Estate’s blessing — with a pilot script from Matthew Francis Wilson. Key stories being adapted include “The Call of Cthulhu,” “The Shadow Over Insmouth” and “The Dunwich Horror.”

Blu-ray Review: Murders In The Rue Morgue/The Dunwich Horror

4 April 2016 7:44 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Shock reviews yet another Aip double feature Blu-ray from Scream Factory. I’m confused, on occasion, as to the criteria that dictates which titles merit stand-alone Scream Factory discs and which ones are subject to getting stacked on these sorts of double feature releases. Take this pair of otherwise unrelated Aip potboilers, one a Poe-flavored would-be…

Review: "The Dunwich Horror" (1969) And "Murders In The Rue Morgue" (1971); Blu-ray Double Feature From Scream Factory

4 April 2016 3:52 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Hank Reineke

Though this welcome Scream Factory issue marks the first time Murders in the Rue Morgue (1971) and The Dunwich Horror (1969) have been made available on domestic Blu-ray, both films enjoyed a previous release on DVD as part of MGM’s long-suspended “Midnite Movies” series. Rue Morgue was first paired with Cry of the Banshee (1970) in 2003, with Dunwich and Die Monster Die! (1965) following in 2005. Though both of these earlier sets are now technically out-of-print, copies remain generally available. Regardless, the more discerning horror-film aficionado would be well advised to seek out this new Blu edition. Not only does Scream Factory’s HD master offer a significant upgrade in visual presentation, the studio has also restored bits of censored footage missing from the Y2K releases.

H.P. Lovecraft’s short story The Dunwich Horror was written in the summer of 1928 and first published in the April 1929 issue of the appropriately titled Weird Tales magazine. »

Look out! Here come two A.I.P. horror pix from the soggy end of the Poe cycle: the first features Jason Robards, an impressive cast and a disorganized storyline. The second is an almost-good Lovecraft horror with interesting performances from Dean Stockwell and Sandra Dee.     Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Dunwich Horror Blu-ray Color Scream Factory Street Date March 29, 2016 / 26.99

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Scream Factory's new double feature disc finishes off two different American-International horror series. The first picture is the last fright film made for the company by the directing and writing team of Gordon Hessler and Christopher Wicking. It's no gem, but it's a lot more interesting on a second viewing. The second is the company's final try to make that old joker H.P. Lovecraft into a filmic horror icon, like Edgar Allan Poe. It has a lot going for it, but also its own set of problems. »

10 February 2016 1:34 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I absolutely Love the majority of American International Pictures’ classic horror films, so this news brings a huge, demented smile to my face. The gang at Scream Factory are bringing a double dose of Aip love, with the March 29th Bluray double feature release of Murders In The Rue Morgue & The Dunwich Horror. Available on Bluray for the first time, the Edgar Allan Poe/H.P. Lovecraft double feature will also brand new commentaries from film historian/writer Steve Haberman as well as a nifty Stage Tricks & Screen Frights featurette to round things out. I’ll be checking these one out, how about you fright fanatics?

Your first frightening film is 1971’s Murders in the Rue Morgue. In early 20th-century Paris, a theatrical company with a specialty in Grand Guignol undertakes their most gruesome production yet. But when a madman with an axe to grind arrives on the scene, the stage »
