New Cthulhu Comedy Sneaking Into Theaters This Year

Though one rarely associates Lovecraft with slapstick humor, that's what you'll get in a new horror-comedy about the last living relative of the pulp writer who invented Cthulhu. The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu is coming to theaters this year.

According to Shock til You Drop:

Dark Sky Films has acquired The Last Lovecraft: Relic Of Cthulhu, directed by Henry Saine . . . Dark Sky is looking to roll the film out through a limited theatrical run later this year.

The filmmakers describe the movie on The Last Lovecraft website like this:

Jeff, a down on his luck office worker finds out he is the last living relative of horror novelist H.P. Lovecraft. What he doesn't know is that Lovecraft's monsters are real and will soon threaten the very existence of mankind. Jeff and his best friend Charlie are forced to embark on a perilous adventure and they enlist the help of high school acquaintance, Paul, a self proclaimed Lovecraft specialist. Together the three unlikely heroes must protect an alien relic and prevent the release of an acient evil, known as Cthulhu.

The trailer for the flick makes it look like a cross between a Stuart Gordon movie and Fanboys - which could be awesome.

So, it's a buddy-comedy?

Could this be the start of a new, post zombie, trend?
