What ho! Once more I shriekingly adorn the tentacular spectacular that is the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in scenic (and so far sunny) Portland, Oregon. And once more, my schedule has materialized from out of the ultraviolet in this hideous Form:

THURSDAY October 4

7:00pm-10:00pm: VIP Reception for Kickstarter backers [Tony Starlight's Showroom]

SATURDAY October 6

10:00am - Noon: Carb-load for Cthulhu
Just you, dozens of Voodoo donuts, bagels, and coffee, and some of this Cosmos's most renowned Weird fiction authors signing books and taking names. Provisions are limited, so get there early and enjoy your blasphemous treats while rediscovering the ancient art form of tree pulp inscribed with the ink of sea creatures! [EOD Center]

9:00pm - 10:00pm: Of Vampires and Space Rocks
A look at films with Cosmic Horror themes, from early Universal to more modern, that audiences might have missed. Chris McMilan (moderator), Derek M. Koch, Dominique Lamssies, Ken Hite, Ray Garton [EOD Center]

10:00pm - 11:00pm: Lovecraft Squares!
A trivia Game-show style event! Guests answer trivia questions and the Audience guesses if they’re right or wrong. Test your knowledge of HPL Trivia and see if you can catch the truths and spot the fibs! Sean Branney, Adam Scott Glancy, Lee Moyer, Richard Stanley, Cody Goodfellow, Kenneth Hite, John Skipp, Andrew Leman, Andrew Migliore [EOD Center]

SUNDAY October 7

3:00pm - 4:00pm: Carcosa Before Chambers: Non-Lovecraftian Forays Into the Weird
Who were Lovecraft and Chambers reading when they were coming up as authors themselves? Edward Morris (moderator), Nathan Carson, Mike Griffin, Ken Hite, Dominique Lamssies, Joe Pulver by Skype! [EOD Center]

4:00pm - 5:00pm: H.P. Lovecraft's Rod Serling's Night Gallery
Rod Serling's Night Gallery anthology series was known for its stories of the macabre and supernatural. It was a perfect fit for adapting some of H. P. Lovecraft's stories to the small screen. Here, we present "Cool Air" and "Pickman's Model" in all their 1971, 4:3 picture ratio glory! Introduction by Kenneth Hite [Upper Left Theater]
