Actually the Lovecraft festival has been in Portland, Oregon most of the time, not Seattle... The Eldritch Influence is good; the interview subjects were mostly insightful, especially Joshi, Campbell, and Lumley... Don't think Gaiman's comments in the film were especially useful or relevant -- tossing out the old cliché about HPL's "adjectivitis," for example. Overall a good effort, although such aspects as Lovecraft's cosmic viewpoint or his poetry could have gotten more attention. In addition, some of his interesting contacts and correspondents such as Robert E. Howard, Robert H. Barlow, and so on could have received more examination.
