If you find yourself in Uruguay from May 15 to 22 the check out Montevideo Fantastico. The Festival is the only event in Uruguay specialized in horror, sci-fi, fantastic and bizarre films. Its objective is to divulge once a year independent and generally low budget productions that are frequently considered as part of a “minor genre” and who almost never have accesss to commercial and even cultural circuits. And Casting Call of Cthulhu will be there. We still got it.
Cover your weak flesh and celebrate the shorts you love with a sharp new shirt designed by Spacecadet Design and produced by Uptown Hustle Apparel. These nifty all-cotton T’s in various colours and styles may actually help attract evil. Each shirt bears the ancient symbol or “logo” from the film poster created by Spacecadet using non-euclidean geometrical shapes, which draw viewers in unknowingly. Every dollar goes right back into our productions, and helps pay for the ones we’ve already done. Buy now, quantities are unlimited.

Remember unfilmable – the site that once supplied us with every drip, dreg, and drop of Lovecraftian film news? Well you don’t need to remember them any longer because now they are back and ready to deliver all the up-to-date info on that which cannot be filmed. Check them out again for the first time . . . here.
Producing Casting Call of Cthulhu failed to provoke insanity, although watching it drove a few people crazy, and the Bad Advice for Good Times crew lived to film again. The new short was colour transferred just yesterday and sound post will finish next week. But be forewarned – there is no escaping madness this time around. To prepare you for what is to come we offer here a small, untextured, uncoloured sample of the horror that awaits you. Warning: The final character will be only partly material and you may experience temporary lapses of visibility.
In October, Bad Advice for Good Times announced that Joseph Nanni (Casting Call of Cthulhu) would be following up the success of his freshman effort with a new short. He wasn’t fhtagn around. Filming finished late last Monday, the rough-cut is in the can, and the footage is now in the hands of 4 Stroke animation who will be realizing another HPL inspired beastie with the same awesomeness they brought to the Great Race. The short was shot with Red Camera by D.P. Ray Dumas. Nanni says, “the film is funni-er than the one other film I have done.”
Keep watching this space for more news. Rumour is the trailer for Drawing Baphomet is also finished. The stars are right in 2009!
If you live in Europe and you love Casting Call of Cthulhu then we have a hard time believing you because the film has yet to be shown in Europe. CCoC will have its European premiere at the Amberg Horror Festival, OKT 28 to NOV 2. So go see it and then say you love it. You don’t have to lie to impress us – we like you for who you are. Oh wait, the film is on the Internet, and Yog Sothoth, and Youtube, and thousands of Europeans have already seen it. Awkward. We’re sorry. Look, things have been stressful at work and sometimes we just forget who we’re talking to. How ’bout this, Friday we’ll go for dinner and catch a movie, just us?
THE Xth WT OS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL in Oslo, Norway will be showing CCoC. That’s pretty much all we can tell you as the site is in Norwegian.
