Post-millennial is the age of H.P. Lovecraft.

Maybe, maybe not talks of a theatrical RE-ANIMATOR remake in 3D.  A doomed proposal for a teencentric HERBERT WEST television series.  The release of CTHULHU as an impressive black and white short and a less impressive Tori Spelling starrer on DVD.  Countless other ambitious amateur adaptations.  Still mumbles of a Stuart Gordon THE THING ON THE DOORSTEP, Guillermo Del Toro’s AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS.  Toys.  Adaptation of THE DUNWICH HORROR with Jeffrey Combs.  The documentary LOVECRAFT: FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN.  Countless comics.  Black and white adaptations.  The Onion even has a go.   And now Ron Howard circling the director’s chair for THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF H.P. LOVECRAFT?

Ever since being introduced to the long dead poet of madness, I’ve felt that Lovecraft was the most influential voice in modern horror.  The post-millennium seals it.  Admiration for his work is legion.  No one, not even the Crimson King himself puts up numbers like this.

And I’ve even yet to write my own Lovecraft tribute story about a world in which time travel has become so mundane that the tech has trickled to all walks of life.  Couple of fans decide to pull one over on ‘ole H.P., traveling back in time and leaving the art of Alex CF on the reclusive scribe’s doorstep.

It’d be a knee slapper.

The State of California Just Shit in Your Mouth.

I’m not letting the burbclave of Hollywood get off with the blame on this one.  The onus is on each and every one of you citizens of the great blue state that is California to climb the nearest clock tower and put an end to this remake, recash, rehash cycle.  I’m impartial to the cinema department.  Want to remake PIRANHA in 3-D?  My money, your hand.  Want to remake RE-ANIMATOR in 3-D?  Whatever, you run a business.

Want to turn the collective literary works of H.P. Lovecraft into a monster of the week network television show with a leaked cast pic so pansy it makes the Jonas Brothers look like bear fucking lumberjacks? The ammo is on me.

Not on the clock tower climbing page with me, yet?  Read the early information Fangoria scored on the Antichrist.  An excerpt of the pain:
