Lovecraft and the dark folk tales of the Po Delta, a mysterious and remote part of northern Italy. 2002: One of the directors of the film comes across a manuscript in Montecatini (Italy) which may have belonged to the American writer. This journal, dated 1926, describes travels in Italy through the Po Delta in search of inspiration in the form of local folk stories: the Filò Tales. 2004: A small, tough crew of international filmmakers is put together with the help of David, a New York actor, to make a documentary on the finding of the journal and on the links between Lovecraft and the Po Delta. If the manuscript really did belong to Lovecraft, it would be an extraordinary discovery.

Lovecraft's not dead!
7 September 2005 | by marco-dreysseSee all my reviews

Who said Lovecraft is dead? Everyone who understands a bit the fascination about Lovecraft and his literature MUST see this film. It is just like his spirit lives in it. I did not know that Lovecraft had made vacations, this was fascinating. And still do not know if I can trust the end, but it doesn't matter. Thank to these guys who shot this documentary. I don't know if anyone before had used Lovecraft as it's main subject in a film. Just like in his books you Find yourself after a while being part of an endless nightmare that at some point began and would maybe never end. I just saw on a festival, hopefully it will be shown in regular cinema.
