H. P. Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown and Necronomicon

You can see the influence of Edgar Allen Poe in Lovecraft’s work, but with his pantheon of ancient mythical gods and esoteric references he brought something new to the genre. Necronomicon isn’t exactly sophistocated Lovecraft for the big screen (Dagon is my personal favourite), but it’s still a fun anthology for horror fans.
