Has there ever been a better time to brush up on your Lovecraft? The author died more than 70 years ago but he’s a red-hot Hollywood player these days with Guillermo del Toro’s announcement that he will be directing a film adapation of “At the Mountains of Madness” and Ron Howard’s own percolating Lovecraft project. This Saturday, you can get your Cthulhu on at the first Los Angeles edition of the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival, which will slither and shamble into our mundane mortal dimension at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro. There are six films scheduled, including the dark, dastardly 1985 classic “Re-Animator,” and plenty of off-screen activities as well. You may conjure up ticket and programming details right here.
