This dvd is another collection of top entries from the annual H P Lovecraft Film Festival; and it's one of the best. The main offering is a pilot made for the BBC of a proposed series featuring Paul Darrow (Avon from Blake's seven) as Sebastian Moon, a civil servant with a big difference. The premise is that there used to be a secret organisation called the Night Scholars which combatted the cult of Cthulhu in Britain. It was disbanded years before under some suspicion of financial misdoings, but Moon is now trying to revive it in the face of increasing numbers of outbreaks of the cult. He goes after a psychologist who came into contact with this nightmare in the Falklands while doing field observations of troops for battlefield stress. The story which unfolds is low on budget and fx, being only the pilot, and has pretty poor film quality, but makes up for it all with the truly disturbing plot and some superb performances by the cast. The dvd has a booklet in the shape of a top secret dossier which has the plot synopses for all the intended stories, so you can get a glimpse of how the series would have panned out, and based on both the pilot and the synopses, it would have been truly great. Tragically, it was never made. The dvd also has the short films The Terrible Old Man and From Beyond, made by Bob Fugger; both are classic low budget independent shorts, brief but very entertaining. There are music videos by the band Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, inspired by Lovecraft, and some short opener films used to introduce items during the festival (these are always worth watching). There are also interviews with the cast and crew of Terrible Old Man, and with the scholar S T Joshi who is one of the greatest experts in the field of horror literature. A very good value collection.
