A desk jockey becomes a slayer of aquatic demons in this blend of horror, fantasy and comedy from director Henry Saine. Jeff (Kyle Davis) is a regular guy with a dull job in an office complex who is certain there's nothing remarkable about himself. But Jeff learns he's wrong when he's approached by an eccentric old man and told he is the last surviving relative of the great horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. That might seem interesting in itself, but there's more -- Jeff is informed Lovecraft's tales of terror weren't entirely fictional, and the Cthulhu, the evil fish-like humanoids that figured in so many of his stories, are real and poised to emerge from the sea and take over the world. Jeff is one of the few people with the proper bloodline to take on the creatures, and with the help of his buddies Charlie (Devin McGinn), an obsessive comic-book fan, and Paul (Barak Hardley), who has been a Lovecraft authority since high school, Jeff and monster hunter Captain Olaf (Gregg Lawrence) set out to defeat the Cthulhu while humanity still has a fighting chance. The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu was an official selection at the 2010 Slamdance Film Festival.
