Shot as one huge Lovecraftian epic by director José Luis Alemán, the Valdemar Legacy and The Forbidden Shadow are big-budget love letters to the world of H.P. Lovecraft, containing everything from the Necronomicon and a family curse to Aleister Crowely, H.P. Lovecraft (as a character in the film), and even Great Cthulhu himself. This is also the last screen appearance of genre great Paul Naschy.
Our Kickstarter was a great success! Over 200 people pledged to our cause and got themselves unique merchandise, like our backer-only glow-in-the-dark Lurker T-shirt, special lapel pins, and much more. The Lovecraft community is truly the greatest on the planet. Thanks for helping to make this a truly epic festival. Click here to check out the (finished) Kickstarter campaign.

In addition to celebrating cinematic adaptations of H.P. Lovecraft and his contemporaries, the festival has a strong history of showcasing films by creators who have been heavily inspired by Lovecraft. We're proud to announce that we will be featuring the Pacific Northwest premiere of Clive Barker's Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut, presented by restoration director Russell Cherrington, who will also be available for Q&A.
Tickets for the festival will go on sale in early March, but you can reserve your place now to experience this amazing premiere by clicking here to support our Kickstarter campaign.
Only seen in a few cities in the US, this edition restores nearly an hour of footage that was previously thought lost and with it restores Barker's original vision for the film. Read more
