I always assume that horror fans everywhere have read at least some of H.P. Lovecraft’s works. I mean the man did write about The Elders and singlehandedly invented an entire genre!! Once filmmaker, Ansel Faraj, appreciates Lovecraft’s contribution and has set out to make his own special tribute to the Master. THE LAST CASE OF AUGUST T. HARRISON is a contemporary Lovecraftian film noir that sounds like it’s gonna hit all the right buttons!! The film is written and directed by Faraj and stars Maggie Wagner, Jerry Lacy, Kelly Erin Decker, Lisa Blake Richards, and Nathan Wilson as H.P. Lovecraft himself. Check out the press release:
The Last Case of August T. Harrison
A Film by Ansel Faraj
“Ever hear of H.P. Lovecraft…?”
Hollinsworth Productions is excited to announce The Last Case of August T. Harrison, a dark neo-noir thriller influenced by Val Lewton and H.P. Lovecraft; coming November 2015 to Digital HD, and at possible film festival screenings.
Set in and around Venice Beach, California – August T. Harrison, private eye, comes out of retirement to solve what seems at first to be a bizarre missing persons case, but as he digs deeper, he finds himself caught in the middle of a dark conspiracy involving the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. Are Lovecraft’s tales just fiction? Or do they hold the secrets of the cosmos?
Currently in production, the film stars Jerry Lacy (Dark Shadows, Play it Again Sam) as August T. Harrison, Maggie Wagner, David Graham, Lisa Blake Richards, Eric Gorlow, Max Landwirth, and Nathan Wilson as H.P. Lovecraft himself.
The film is written and directed by Ansel Faraj, director of 2013’s Doctor Mabuse and the 2014 web series Theatre Fantastique. Ansel Faraj, Nathan Wilson, Rosa Taylor-Faraj and Roxie Zelden are the film’s producers. The score is composed by award winning composer Bill Wandel.
This movie sounds right up my alley!! I hope we see a 2015 release.
