The team that gave us the excellent HP Lovecraft adaptation Die Fabre (based on The Colour Out Of Space) is now crowdsourcing funds to bring HP Lovecraft's "dream cycle" to film for the first time.
Such an ambitious project has an equally ambitious price tag and the filmmakers are looking for 200,000 Euros (roughly £164,000 or $276,000) by May 31 (there is a detailed breakdown of costs on the movie's IndieGoGo campaign page).
Dreamlands, scripted by director Huan Vu, is primarily based on Lovecraft’s short stories Celephaïs, The White Ship, The Strange High House in the Mist and The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath.
Vu adds: "It will build upon the world created by HP Lovecraft but also remain faithful to his core concepts of fantastic escapism and cosmic horror. The Dreamlands is a film you are never likely to see produced by the established film industry."
Check out the campaigns site for the numerous incentives for investment (from DVDs & Blu-Rays to props, T-shirts, posters and the chance to appear in the film), and to learn about other ways you can help the film-makers reach their goal and bring this surreal and horrific motion picture to life.
