Another excellent Lovecraftian short came out recently, free to watch on Vimeo. Autumn Harvest is a moody take on Lovecraft’s fear of and obsession with the sea, making wonderful use of bleak Norwegian shorelines to build atmosphere. Everything about this film is polished and professional, resulting in one of the strongest Lovecraftian shorts I’ve seen.
Autumn Harvest is in Norwegian, but given that there is a single word of dialogue, which is subtitled, this shouldn’t prove a barrier. What may be more off-putting to some is that the film is graphically violent and gory. The effect is mitigated by being shot in black and white, but be warned that this is nastier fare than most.
Update: Director Fredrik Hana is currently crowdfunding a new Lovecraftian short, called Sister Hell. Details can be found here.
