H.P. Lovecraft was the forefather of modern horror fiction, having inspired such writers as Stephen King, influencing films such as Alien and Hellboy, and in music, Metallica and Iron Maiden. What led an Old World, xenophobic gentleman to create one of literature’s most far-reaching mythologies? What attracts even the minds of the 21st century to these stories of unspeakable abominations and cosmic gods? "Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown" is a chronicle of the life, work and mind that created these weird tales as told by many of today’s luminaries of dark fantasy including John Carpenter (The Thing), Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Neil Gaiman (Coraline), Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator), Caitlin Kiernan (Daughter of Hounds) and Peter Straub (Ghost Story).
