hp lovecraftOn this day in 1890 which is 125 years ago, the legendary horror author known as H.P. Lovecraft was born in Providence, R.I. which makes him a local legend (to me at least). The man was responisble for so many great stories that would later be turned into films like The Call Of Cthulhu (most famous one), From Beyond (done by Stuart Gordon), The Outsider (Gordon’s Castle Freak was based on this), The Colour Out of Space (It was made twice for Die Monster Die!– 1965 and The Curse-1986), The Case of Charles Dexter Ward (beautifully done by Roger Corman in The Haunted Palace), and one my personal favorites in the short story series Herbert West-Reanimator (Later turned into Re-Animator and all of it’s sequels). Much like what Edgar Allen Poe was for the horror world, H.P. Lovecraft was as equally talented and an amazing contributor. So Happy 125TH Birthday to H.P. Lovecraft.
