A struggling horror writer, Martin Hale(Shannon Solo), receives yet another rejection letter for one of his stories. That is the final straw for his domineering wife Alice (Christine Mangone) who insists that he should give up on his dream of being a writer and sell his laptop in order to pay the bills. When he goes to the local pawnshop to reluctantly sell his computer he notices in the window of the shop something quite remarkable. A pillow reputed to have belonged to horror legend Howard Phillips Lovecraft. He cannot resist using his laptop to buy the pillow as he knows that Lovecraft based many of his stories on dreams that he experienced while resting his head upon that very pillow. Will he be similarly inspired to come up with great works of cosmic horror by the pillow?Written by
Not bad. At the moment this is a short that can be watched on IMDb for free, a pretty cool new feature.
A writer with bills to pay gets his latest story rejected by Cemetery Dance (a real horror magazine and publisher). His wife nags him to pawn his laptop computer that they couldn't really afford anyway. However, at the pawnshop he sees famed horror writer H.P. Lovecraft's pillow for sale for $250. He can't resist buying it (although you'd think he'd want some provenance from the store better than "yeah, the guy who pawned it said it was").
It's not a particularly Lovecraftian story itself. For a presumably low budget, there still is some decent camera-work, such as what appears to be a crane shot of the pawnshop.
