Haunted by recent events and on the run, a man finds himself the unwitting pawn of a possessed evangelical radio station and like his unfortunate predecessor must ask himself whether it is better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.

Lovecraft's personal life wasn't all that particularly interesting. He was a strange, xenophobic, recluse of a man. I just said it all in one sentence. The documentary spends a good 45 minutes on this. Yes, there were early bouts of insanity in his family. Yes, he was an aristocrat from a now broke lineage. Yes, his bizarre upbringing led to him being distant with people which caused the inevitable end to his single, short marriage. Bam. That's it. I just summed up the man's life. What actually was fascinating about Lovecraft was the vastness of his writings and the scope that each short story brought to his literary universe, one after the other in a sort of third rate Poe rip off fashion.
This plays like a bad DVD extra with no new information given about the man or his movies, and only a portion of his films are even mentioned. The wikipedia entry on him has more info.
