Cosmic Horror: HP Lovecraft

„If you are into horror, chances are you've heard of the American author H.P. Lovecraft. One of his most famous works, "The Call of Cthulhu," has an almost cult following in pop culture, with assorted merchandise as well as video games based on the tale. Imagine a man whose astronomical fiction is so realistic and powerful that numerous cults have formed and based practices on it, in an almost religious sense. (…) Lovecraft created his own sub-genre of the horror genre, known as Lovecraftian horror, or cosmic horror. This sub-genre highlights the unknown, the unknowable, and the unreachable depths of the universe. There have been film adaptions of his stories, but they usually do not hold up to the source material, and usually miss or incorrectly portray events.“
