"H.P. Lovecraft was the forefather of modern horror fiction having inspired such writers as Stephen King, Robert Bloch, and Neil Gaiman. The influence of his Cthulhu mythos can be seen in film, games, music, and pop culture in general. But what led an Old World, xenophobic gentleman to create one of literature's most far-reaching mythologies? What attracts even the minds of the 21st century to these stories of unspeakable abominations and cosmic gods? 'Lovecraft : fear of the unknown' is a chronicle of the life, work and mind that created these weird tales as told by many of today's luminaries of dark fantasy including John Carpenter, Guillermo Del Toro, Neil Gaiman, Stuart Gordon, Caitlin Kiernan, and Peter Straub"--Container.

This is a fairly good documentary of a writer that I am not too familiar with. I like how the inspired authors of Lovecraft praise his writing prowess, along with some artistic drawings of his creatures. What I did not like was how in one moment they would be talking about him and then a moment later they would be talking about one of his books. I found the transition from his books and his biography a bit confusing at times. Maybe if they'd spaced it out a little further from each other I might have appreciated it more. Nevertheless, Lovecraft fans will definitely enjoy this one!
