Lurker Films Announces the H.P. Lovecraft Collection Volume 3: Out of Mind on DVD
Acclaimed by Lovecraft fans worldwide, this Bravo!Canada television show starring Christopher Heyerdahl (Blade: Trinity, The Chronicles of Riddick & "Kingdom Hospital") is available now for the first time on DVD and includes many extras.
PORTLAND, OR (PRWEB) April 15, 2005 -- Lurker Films, Inc. the world's leading producer and distributor of Lovecraft related film products announced the immediate availability of "The H.P. Lovecraft Collection™ Volume 3: Out of Mind" on DVD, available from merchants throughout the United States.
"Out of Mind" casts an entertaining eye on the work of American writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), one of the early 20th century's masters of gothic-horror literature. The film offers an encounter with Lovecraft and enters into his world. Engaging in a kind of game around the writer, the film playfully winks at many of the themes characteristic of his work: the occult, cursed books, monstrous creatures, and the world of dreams. Out of Mind draws its inspiration from Lovecraft's actual personal correspondence and many of his stories, carrying the viewer through a labyrinth "beyond the wall of sleep."
The H.P. Lovecraft Collection Volume 3: Out of Mind DVD includes:
• "Out of Mind: The Stories of H. P. Lovecraft" television feature film
• Two audio commentary tracks by writer/director Raymond Saint-Jean, actor Christopher Heyerdahl, and cinematographer
• John Strysik's award winning student short film "The Music of Erich Zann" with both Dolby 2.0 and 5.1 audio options.
• Aaron Vanek’s student short films "The Outsider" and "My Necronomicon".
• Interviews with the crew of "The Music of Erich Zann"
• The third part of the continuing interview with the foremost Lovecraft scholar in the world, S. T. Joshi.
• Bonus trailers of upcoming films including "Call of Cthulhu"
The H.P. Lovecraft Collection Volume 3: Out of Mind DVD will be available through retail at a suggested price of US$21.95. The DVD is not rated but a rating of PG-13 is suggested. Total running time of the DVD is over 120 minutes.
"It is fitting that this DVD was mastered on March 15th, the anniversary of Lovecraft’s death," said producer Andrew Migliore, "and occurs in the wake of the Library of America’s newly released volume of Lovecraft short stories proving that Lovecraft’s writings have literary merit and is worth preserving."
