Lovecraft Horror In Footage Found, Arabi

The fourth segment for Volume 1 of The Horror Anthology Movie is a strange one indeed. We are always on the lookout for authentic video or audio of Lovecraft or anything in that vein, and considering that no known film exists with the famous horror author, we were surprised when we received a mysterious package with some very interesting footage.
While we cannot say too much about this film now, we can tell you that it was apparently shot in Arabi, Louisiana during the week of June 9th, 1932 and it is a fact that H.P. Lovecraft was in New Orleans, Louisiana during that time..

1940’s Horror Quintet Dead Of Night

Dead Of Night horror anthology movie
No lover of horror anthology movies can afford to miss this great 1940’s British quintet of terror tales entitled “Dead Of Night.”
Directed by a variety of filmmakers including Basil Dearden, Alberto Cavalcanti, Charles Crichton and Robert Hamer, Dead Of Night (1945) was a post WW2 film which was made right after a period when horror films were banned in Britain.
This is a solid pentalogy of British horror, but perhaps the standout is the story called “Ventriloquist’s Dummy.” (pictured) starring period favorite Michael Redgrave. In the story, Redgrave plays a rather mentally unstable ventriloquist who believes that his dummy has taken on a life of it’s own..with horrifying consequences. Seeing this for the first time as a youngster, this segment made me lose a few nights of sleep to be sure!

Dead Of Night is available through Netflix, for sale here and available for download here.
