H.P. Lovecraft is an influential American horror writer. In 1893, his father goes insane and eventually dies from syphilis. His mother Sarah would smother her only child to a disturbing level. The Lovecrafts are an old English family. His maternal grandfather is a wealthy industrialist who encouraged him to read. His weak nature kept him out of school much of the time. His loneliness and insecurities fostered by his mother led him to a warped imagination of a disturbing hidden world of horrors. His grandfather dies and family fortune is lost. He falls further into isolation and depression only to be rescued by his pulp writings. His amateur journalism reveals a xenophobia but garners a loyal following. This allows his disturbing tales with an overwrought baroque style to be printed. He would struggle financially throughout his life.
This is a functional biopic detailing Lovecraft's life. It's laid out in a straight forward manner with narration. There are lots of talking heads with a few recognizable faces. This is a traditional doc that is on the lower budget level. This is fine for the general public and a good overall view for fans.
