H.P. Lovecraft's "Pickman's Model"

About 10 days left in Arkham Cinema’s Pickman’s Model film adaptation Kickstarter (from the director of 1990’s Cool Air). You can help support indie productions like this, the very stuff that fuels the HPLFF.

It’s all wound down, and the festival (both live and streaming) are at a FULL STOP! We sincerely hope everyone had a good time, regardless of our fest rusty-ness. BUT A REQUEST: We had an ad in the Willamette Week the week of the festival. We’d love a copy, if you have one, even if you just take a good pic of the ad. If you have that issue, could you pull it out and take a look? THANK YOU!

The HPLFF loves Movie Madness. Streaming is great, but when your really want just the right thing… especially cult classic horror, Movie Madness is the cure for what ails you.

When you back our Kickstarter for a level that contains one of our shirts, those are printed by hand in house in our Portland workshop. Here’s the beginning of the magic… printing positives that will be exposed with the screens that have been coated with a photosensitive emulsion. This results in the stencil that we’ll be pushing each of the shirts colored inks through to make the full design. It’s a tedious manual process, but the results are much better and more durable than any digitally printed shirt. Back that campaign at http://bit.ly/kickcthulhu22

One for all
This movie might be worth consideration.
Cannot wait for it to get colder!
Will the posters and shirts from this festival appear on Arkham Bazaar? I try to get one every year and don’t wanna miss this years one!
Where can I find the Virtual Mall of Cthulhu?
Are full Festival streaming passes available yet?
I can't find them on the kickstarter page. Or at the Hollywood Theater.
Anyone seen indie Lovecraft movie "The Letter" filmed in Illinois
I'm going to say this both here, as well as your main page.

You folks are rock stars.

When something like this goes wrong, and things are out of your control, it can be awful. You get messaged by everyone, over and over again, about the same problem that you are already desperately working on. I get that.

Throughout all of this, you have been calm, cool, collected, and (most of all) effective. If I had ANY doubts about whether or not I'd be backing the KS for the festival later this year, they have been washed away by your professionalism and calm authority.

I only wish there was a digital "Lurker" issue for this event, but hey, maybe for the main con?

Again, I know this isn't your first rodeo - and you've been doing a great job with the festival for a while, but leaping into this new frontier and fixing issues on the fly while preparing for a livestream?

Fu***ng Rock Stars
Hello everybody, here are my homages to
Great
