Last year on Facebook, I saw a H.P. Lovecraft fan group promoting a midnight, online showing of the Lovecraftian short movie "AM1200".
If you know me in real life, then you probably know that I am a fan of Mr. Lovecraft. Not only have his stories shaped modern day horror sci-fi as we know it, but he is quite an interesting character himself. And I have to admit that I was intrigued by Mr. Lovecraft way before I actually sat down to read any of his stories. It was the man himself that led me to the work.
With that being said, I knew as soon as I read the word "Lovecraftian" that I had to watch this movie.
So, I stayed up and watched the midnight stream on lovecraftzine.com and, wow! I was quickly captivated by this movie and have watched it over and over again since then.
Sam Larson has embezzled a large sum of money from his employer. Soon paranoia sets in about being apprehended by the law, he takes off with the money in tow. After driving all day and into the night, Sam turns on the radio to discover a cry for help from a nearby radio station. Sensing the urgency in the man's voice, Sam quickly locates the radio station out in the woods. After one look at the spooky station, he opts not to go in. Unfortunately, the forest has other plans for Sam and won't let him leave. Running out of options, Sam faces his fear and returns to the station. What Sam finds next will change his life forever.
-Run Time: Appr. 40 mins.
