Trailer Time: Lovecraft Country from HBO

Heads up, Old Gods fans! The trailer for the new HBO series Lovecraft Country just arrived.

The series is based on the 2016 book by Matt Ruff and follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

  1. Just watched Episode 1. HBO has a solid property here. The anachronism of the 60s is perfectly captured in this story driven drama and the weight of main characters world is clearly depicted. The blood…. soooo much blood. This feels true to Lovecraft. The fact that I can’t binge it is both nostalgic and frustrating. All in all I’m already a fan and can’t wait for the next episode. What a great show.
