PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Providence native and cult horror writer H.P. Lovecraft will be the subject of a special walking tour and film series during the annual Flickers' Vortex Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Film Festival (Vortex), October 19-27, 2019. The tour will take place this year on five days starting at 12:00 NOON (all days): Saturday, October 19th, Sunday, October 20th, Saturday, October 26th, Sunday, October 27th and Saturday, November 2nd.

 

lovecraftThe life and work of Providence's best-known fantasy and horror author, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, will provide the backdrop for the tour, which will be lead by the Rhode Island Historical Society.  Lovecraft's "Providence stories" (written between 1924 and 1935) provide the basis for this walk.  Lovecraft wrote eloquently, and in great detail, about such landmarks as Prospect Terrace, the First Baptist Church, and Benefit Street houses.  Participants will see the site of his former home, as well as locales mentioned in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, The Haunter of the Dark, The Shunned House, and The Call of Cthulhu.

 

Following the tour, which lasted for approximately 90 minutes, participants were treated to a ticket to see premiere films inspired by Lovecraft. The film screenings will take place at Brown University, Salomon Center, Room 203 in collaboration with the Brown University Film Forum (BUFF).

 

“It is amazing how Lovecraft’s horror writing still resonates with audiences today and his work has become such an inspiration for filmmakers across the world,” commented Shawn Quirk, Program Director, Flickers' Vortex Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Film Festival.

 

“Providence provided the inspiration for his most chilling and terrifying stories. This walking tour is a wonderful opportunity for his fans to connect with the man behind the writer.”
