PORTLAND, OR (PRWEB) November 26, 2004
Lurker Films, Inc. the world's leading producer and publisher of Lovecraft related film products announced the release of The H.P. Lovecraft CollectionÂ Volume 2: Rough Magik on DVD and will be available from merchants throughout the United States and Canada by December 6th.
Rough Magik, a proposed BBC television pilot written and produced by Stephen Parsons, plugs nicely into the dark world of Delta Green (a role playing game based on the mythos of author H.P. Lovecraft), and concerns The Night Scholars, a clandestine organization setup in England to monitor the ancient cult of Cthulhu. After decades of compiling an enormous database of arcane information, they have come to a single, incontrovertible conclusion: the Sleeping God is waking.
Diana Armitage, with the help of her Home Office liaison, the mysterious Mr. Moon (Paul Darrow), launch an aggressive campaign against the Dreamers. This operation, designated the Rough Magik initiative, was successful but they trod on the toes of some powerful people, amidst accusations of financial impropriety and possible treason, and the Night Scholars were disbanded. Now years later, the old magic is returning, the Sleeping God is rising, and there are more Dreamers than Mr. Moon can handle as he struggles to rebuild the Night Scholars before its too late.
