When HBO announced its new thriller Lovecraft Country in May, fans were excited because J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele were associated with the project. However, this latest Comic-Con sneak peek allows us to see what the sci-fi juggernauts have in store for us this summer.


The 10-episode series is based on Matt Ruff’s horror novel of the same name. To summarize, the story follows three Black characters as they embark on a road trip across then-segregated America in the 1950s in search of a missing family member. The trio eventually discovers themselves battling supernatural monsters and rampant racism which, in itself, is a horrific theme to explore.  

The latest sneak peek sets us up for what’s to come.     

Via Rolling Stone:

“In the tense three-minute scene, the series’ lead characters — Jonathan Majors’ Atticus, Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Letitia and Michael K. Williams’ Montrose — use moonlight find a secret passageway that leads from an empty museum to an underground catacomb.”

“Beware all ye who tread the path,” an inscription warns, “Ever the tide shall rise.”

First of all, the series stars Michael K. Williams (The Wire), Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Underground), and Jonathan Majors (“The Last Black Man in San Francisco) who all stand out in a stellar casting ensemble full of familiar faces.

Secondly, Black people exploring anything premised in the Jim Crow era already has us shooketh. Throw in some Peele-crafted sci-fi magic and the series has the makings to be a summertime smash. Be prepared to sprinkle Florida water and smudge a little sage before watching, though. 

Lovecraft Country, created and written by Misha Green, premieres August 16th on HBO.  If you haven’t done so already, download HBO Max to easily stream it on demand.

The Terrible Old Man – H. P. Lovecraft

Genre: Horror

Price: $ 2.99

Publish Date: April 7, 2020

Publisher: Open Road Media

Seller: OpenRoad Integrated Media, LLC


The first story set in the fishing village of Kingsport, which is featured in the later works of the one of the greatest horror writers of all time.   It is rumored that the mysterious old man who lives alone in the small New England town was once a sea captain. It is also rumored that he is hoarding a treasure. When three robbers decide to steal it, they will encounter a bloodthirsty evil unlike any they ever imagined . . .   “ The Terrible Old Man is the story of three career criminals looking to rob the eponymous character, an eccentric retired mariner so ancient that no one alive remembers his youth. . . . This is also the first story set in the fictional New England geography that Lovecraft will detail over the course of future writing. . . . So, what we see in these stories is Lovecraft beginning to construct the alternate world which will be the home to his most famous works, at least as much a unifying element of the author’s oeuvre as those details subsequent writers and critics have defined as the ‘Cthulhu Mythos.’ As such, The Terrible Old Man is not only an effective piece of eerie storytelling, it is also an important stepping stone in the development of a bigger Lovecraftian world.” — The Blood-Shed   “A piece of minimalist brushwork, with most of the narrative suggested by negative space . . . In sharp contrast to the central Mythos tales, the horror is allusive and oblique, the violence kept off-stage.” —Tor.com

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Lovecraft was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he spent most of his life. Among his most celebrated tales is "The Call of Cthulhu", canonical to the Cthulhu Mythos. Never able to support himself from earnings as author and editor, Lovecraft saw commercial success increasingly elude him in this latter period, partly because he lacked the confidence and drive to promote himself. He subsisted in progressively straitened circumstances in his last years; an inheritance was completely spent by the time he died at the age of 46.
