The Eldritch Influence: The Life, Vision, and Phenomenon of H.P. Lovecraft

Well, horrid ones, today brings us the documentary film The Eldritch Influence, an exploration of the Old Man's impact on society and culture. While boasting many famous talking heads of varying relevance (Stuart Gordon, Ramsey Campbell, Neil Gaiman, ST Joshi, etc.) this work often pads itself with Blair Witch-style tomfoolery (made most unconvincing by a laughable papier-mâché Cthulhu) and interviews with nebbishy LARPers and other nonentities. Still, this will be of great interest to the converted and the already-damned.
Also, ignore the actor playing yours truly, he will get what's coming to him.
