Over the span of his career, H.P. Lovecraft wrote just over sixty stories, many of which are regarded as landmarks of modern horror fiction. Nearly half of these stories have been adapted for film and television productions featuring the work of some of Hollywood's most distinguished directors, actors, and actresses. "H.P. Lovecraft Goes to the Movies" offers a unique grouping of Lovecraft's best stories that have been adapted for the big screen. In addition to an introduction that provides a brief history of Lovecraft adaptations in film and television, the book features short headnotes for each story that calls out interesting trivia about the movies and an appendix providing credits for each screen treatment.
