The people who say this isn't based on Lovecraft or the Cthulhu mythos are way off base, and they miss the point of this romp. Without H.P. Lovecraft's writing, this movie wouldn't exist. It isn't meant to be a "Lovecraft movie" or to be taken seriously. It's precisely what its writer and co-star intended it to be, a cinematic comic book and a tribute to Lovecraft as the father of modern horror and the progenitor of much of what we know as horror comics, both serious and humorous. The performers are all at least adequate, and the three leads are charming, portraying Regular Guys and a stereotyped comic book nerd with tongues firmly in cheek. It's obvious everyone who had anything to do with The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu had a ball, and so will you, unless you have no sense of fun at all.

Enjoyable horror comic book...Reviewed bygayspiritwarriorVote: 7/10
This indie film was one of the best I've seen and had me laughing out loud many times. For a fan of Lovecraft, I felt they did a wonderful job and were true to the mythos. Lovecraft sorely deserves more screen time and I would love to see a sequel.
The effects were done very well and I was impressed with how scary they actually made the monsters. Enough gore to make it a horror film but not so much as to be overboard or sickening. I loved the unicorn t-shirt! The acting was perfect and believable, I am really glad their was no stupid girl to ruin the vibe of the movie with the characters mentioning sex every 5 seconds.
Overall it has everything that you look for in an indie movie and more, I highly recommend!!!!!
Who is the target audience? You might be tempted to think it is the bookish type who like Lovecraft's work of suspense and psychological horror. But this movie is not for geeks or readers. The main character says "bro" in nearly every sentence. There is no suspense, no thrills, and the only "nerds" in the movie are the butt of the jokes, not the heros.
The pacing. The movie is only 78 minutes long (thankfully) and about 50 minutes of that is introduction. By the time the premise has been set up, and the action starts, the movie is two-thirds over.
The humor. The humor seems aimed at the kinds of teenage boys who post homophobic comments on YouTube. The lame, unfunny "jokes" poke fun at rape and gay men, and that's about it.
There are no female characters. The only two women in this wonderful piece of cinema are sexy tramps who have one line each.
The lead actor. The two supporting characters are affable dorks who make bad jokes. Fine. But the main character has no charisma. At the start of the movie they present him as bland and boring. But the movie forgets to evolve him. Every second he was on the screen I found myself looking at my phone. Not a talented actor, either.
I was bored. The movie suffered from a complete lack of direction; in the terrible script and in the sluggish pace. It is too slow and boring for a Bad Movie Night, so don't even bother.
