For years musician and film maker Fabian Rush wanted to make his dream project: a tribute to the seminal author H.P. Lovecraft. It would be a rock opera made by a fan who’s passionate about the author’s work and, through the power of campy B movie charm, draw people into Lovecraft’s dark world. Fabian raised $5,000 on Kickstarter, set up his green screen, called his musician friends and was off. What he created, Fhtagn: Rock Opera of Dooom, is something spectacular in my estimation. As soon as I saw it, I was sucked in and wanted to learn more!
I’m serious, this movie kicks ass. It uses its humour and campiness to bring you into a more serious and fascinating introduction to H.P. Lovecraft and his work. Devious!
