The Call of Cthulu is a Lovecraft tribute that follows artist Carter and the woman he's just fallen in love with, Riley, as they negotiate the fact that Riley's the chosen bride of Cthulu. Not in any way the weirdest take on the mythos there's ever been.

If you're in Texas, you can see Call Girl of Cthulu on April 16, 2015 (9:00pm) at the Alamo Village Theater, followed by a Q&A with Director Chris LaMartina and cast member Melissa O’Brien. Here's the synopsis:

Carter Wilcox (David Phillip Carollo) is a struggling artist who’s been saving his virginity for someone special. When he meets the enchanting escort Riley Whatley (Melissa O'Brien), he believes he’s found the one. Unfortunately, she’s also "someone special" to an ancient cult that believes she is the chosen bride of their alien god, Cthulhu.

Forced to mate with their tentacled deity, Riley becomes a vessel for the spawn that will destroy mankind.

Now, Carter and his noise musician roommate, Erica Zann (Nicolette Le Faye), must battle the sinister cult and unimaginable creatures to save Riley... and the rest of humanity.

Will they save the world or surrender to the slimy grip of the Great Old Ones?
