To say the least, I'm incredibly excited about this. H.P. Lovecraft has entertained and intrigued me since I can remember. Makes me wish I knew flash. Can't wait to see the entries.

That's because the squid demon in Hellboy was based on Cthulhu. de Toro wants to do a major adaptation of Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" and is a huge Lovecraft fan.

Lovecraft was a horror author in the 20's. His influence is still very common today. Among his literary creations are the Necronomicon (as seen in the Evil Dead movies), Herbert West (as seen in the Re-Animator movies and the De-Animator Flash game here on Newgrounds) and many other things. The Lovecraft Mythos even inspired a two-part episode of Cartoon Network's Justice League.

Stephen King has made numerous nods to Lovecraft in many of his stories, including "the Lot" and "Needful Things". Indeed, countless horror authors have drawn upon his "Cthulhu Mythos" which has given it a life of its own - hence why so many people think the Necronomicon is a real book.

Among the movies made from Lovecraft's work (and there are over a hundred) such names as Vincent Price, Dean Stockwell, Lon Chaney Jr., Sandra Dee even Rutger Hauerhave all had parts in Lovecraft films. The first movie Francis Ford Coppolla ever worked on was a Lovecraft adaptation ("The Haunted Palace") even though he didn't get credit for his work editing the script.

Most of Lovecraft's work (almost exclusively short stories) are available on the web and a quick Google search should provide you with far more information than I should dump at you all at once.

The basic premise of most of his work is that there was another race of beings, the Great Old Ones, that ruled the Earth long before man and who will return to reclaim their world, when the stars are right.

That is not dead, which can eternal lie
And with strage aeons, even death may die

Hope that helps without being overwhelming.

Wrong! It's avaiable for Xbox in Germany on June 10th, not now.
Can't wait, I'm sold.

Sorry, Tom, but wasn't Alien Hominid supposedly being set for release on Gamecube? Even local magazines stated this, is the Gamecube version being put off like many 3rd party games? I hope not, because I'm starting to get a bit sick of this, even though most 3rd party titles suck ass (Need for Speed, Fifa etc.)

Hey Tom, I read on some gaming site they are thinking about making AH for Gameboy, that would be amazing for you. Is this true?

Well, the first entries haven't rolled in yet, but I'm certainly looking forward to them. It'll be great to see some Newgrounds animation on the big screen.
