From the Back Cover:

YOU CAN'T KILL WHAT WON'T STAY BURIED

Cosmic horror author H. P. Lovecraft never wanted his gothically nihilistic works adapted for the screen. Oh well! The Lurker in the Lobby munches popcorn where angels fear to tread, with reviews of the famous, infamous and just plain obscure films and television shows that have been directly inspired by Lovecraft's work- or that want you to think they are. Of course, Hollywood isn't the only place to make a Lovecraft movie. Essays by more than fifteen amateur and student film-makers explore the depths of their passion for these Lovecraftian labors of love- and the hard realities of zero-budget film-making that go with them. Countless stills and movie posters accompany the text, and as a special treat we present the Shadow Over Innsmouth Sketchbook, containing acclaimed artist Bernie Wrightson's illustrated designs for the never-produced film. So draw the shutters, dig out your copy of the Necronomicon, and brush up on your sixth-dimensional hyper-geometry- the dark globe of Lovecraftian cinema is on a collision course with Earth!
