Portland, OR (PRWEB) April 21, 2005
Lurker Films, Inc. the world's leading producer and distributor of Lovecraft related film products announced the immediate availability of "The H.P. Lovecraft CollectionÂ Volume 3: Out of Mind" on DVD, available from merchants throughout the United States.
"Out of Mind" casts an entertaining eye on the work of American writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), one of the early 20th century's masters of gothic-horror literature. The film offers an encounter with Lovecraft and enters into his world. Engaging in a kind of game around the writer, the film playfully winks at many of the themes characteristic of his work: the occult, cursed books, monstrous creatures, and the world of dreams. Out of Mind draws its inspiration from Lovecraft's actual personal correspondence and many of his stories, carrying the viewer through a labyrinth "beyond the wall of sleep."
The H.P. Lovecraft Collection Volume 3: Out of Mind DVD includes:
Â ÂOut of Mind: The Stories of H. P. LovecraftÂ television feature film
Â Two audio commentary tracks by writer/director Raymond Saint-Jean, actor Christopher Heyerdahl, and cinematographer Serge Ladouceur.
Â John Strysik's award winning student short film ÂThe Music of Erich ZannÂ with both Dolby 2.0 and 5.1 audio options.
Â Aaron VanekÂs student short films ÂThe OutsiderÂ and ÂMy NecronomiconÂ.
Â Interviews with the crew of ÂThe Music of Erich ZannÂ
Â The third part of the continuing interview with the foremost Lovecraft scholar in the world, S. T. Joshi.
Â Bonus trailers of upcoming films including ÂCall of CthulhuÂ
The H.P. Lovecraft Collection Volume 3: Out of Mind DVD will be available through retail at a suggested price of US$21.95. The DVD is not rated but a rating of PG-13 is suggested. Total running time of the DVD is over 120 minutes.
"It is fitting that this DVD was mastered on March 15th, the anniversary of Lovecraft's death," said producer Andrew Migliore, "and occurs in the wake of the Library of AmericaÂs newly released volume of Lovecraft short stories proving that LovecraftÂs writings have literary merit and is worth preserving."
