BC Mag #1: Modernizing Lovecraft: An In-Depth Interview With Alan Moore

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Adi Tantimedh.

Herbert Philips Lovecraft is arguably the most influential horror writer in the history of English Literature. Virtually every horror writer and filmmaker from Stephen King to John Carpenter to Ramsay Campbell to Neil Gaiman to Guillermo Del Toro cite his work as a major influence on their own work and way of thinking. The handful of horror stories he wrote created a mythology of a dangerous cosmos filled with creatures older than time lying in wait to return and devour the world has been taken up and copied endlessly by other writers and filmmakers for decades after his death, up to the present day. The prospect of adapting Lovecraft’s novel AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS into a movie is considered a cinematic Holy Grail by filmmakers and horror fans alike.
